Re: [PLUG] other VMs

Just wanted to expand on my group question to get some feedback of whether
anyone has used any other VM solutions that do not utilize Windows in any
way? I just noticed that Red Hat released a platform and oddly enough you
still need a Windows client to access the management console (yeah, bizarre
I know. <>). After digging
around I came across the ConVirt <> management
platform which manages KVM/Xen hosts and best part is the management console
can be used from a Linux client. Does anyone have any production experience
with such a setup? Everyone seems to have some experience with VMWare's
platform but I have heard very little discussion from others regarding the
production ready viability of other platforms. Which is understandable if
they are not at this time, I'm just interested :)

  I use Sun VirtualBox and that is as crossplatform as far as I can ascertain.  Unfortunately, I don't use it as an enterprise tool, so I can only say that I've used it on Suse, Ubuntu, MacOS and windows for running guest oses.
