Re: [PLUG] Red Hat's new PaaS cloud service vs inhouse vmware

A little bit of both. I think virtualization is over-rated and is often used as a substitute when people are too lazy (or too stressed or under too much time pressure) to create isolated environments on the host. For virtualization, I personally use kvm, which is part of all current Linux kernels and always works.

For me, VMware sometimes had to be coaxed and cajoled into working, but generally worked well once I got it working.

I'm curious. ÂAre you saying you don't use virtualization or that you
prefer a different flavor?
