We got told that take 3 to 4 weeks for EqualLogic boxs to come, but only 1 and 1/ weeks... :) it made it the same day as our Dell R900 server, but where is the MD3000i?
So while we wait for MD3000i.. trying to pick Xen or VMWare.
The problem I have with VMware right now is that with out getting VMware Control Center all the cool stuff like creating a system in under 10mins gets way to complex and not easy for my dev guys.
So right now my system team checking out Xen (Microsoft was selling Xen hard at a windows 2008 session). Also Microsoft supports their software running on a Xen, but not on VMWare.
Once we made a choice with VMWare v Xen then get back to building our new cluster.
