Where to get timely VMware virtualization information

December 25th, 2008 by jason Leave a reply »

Happy Holidays!  I thought tonight was the night I was going to post some “Citrix XenApp virtualized on VMware ESX” that many have been asking me for behind the scenes, but alas it’s 10:30pm and I just don’t have the energy for such a post that will require considerable effort to put together.  I’ve accumulated some information here and there for various people, but it’s time to formally consolidate the scattered pieces of information into one decent post that I can fine tune as needed going forward.  Before you start licking your chops in anticipation of a rocket science blog post on virtualizing Citrix, please don’t.  What I promise is the details and discoveries behind one person’s virtualized Citrix environment.  With VI3, virtualizing Citrix is fairly straightforward but extra special attention must be paid in determining virtualization candidacy.

Now I wouldn’t want anyone to walk away empty handed from my blog on Christmas so I leave you with this:  A no-frills post revealing the source of where I get 90-95% of my daily virtualization information – RSS feeds of various blogs and websites.  This file (right click, save as – it’s XML) contains an export of all of my RSS subscriptions.  Import it into your favorite RSS reader.  Set your RSS subscription refresh interval to 15 minutes.  Stay informed with nearly up to the minute and late breaking VMware virtualization news.  With new blogs and sites popping up weekly, for sure this list is nowhere near what I would call complete.  If you have any suggestions or if you see a great blog or site that I am missing, by all means, let me know in the comment section below.  I’m the type of guy that can never get enough VMware virtualization information.

Disclaimer:  My RSS subscription list contains a few subscriptions to non-virtualization related feeds which you may want to remove.

Update:  I’ve added two more great blogs to the RSS feeds:  Gabe’s Virtual World (Gabrie van Zanten) and Jase’s Place (Jason McCarty).

    @Duncan The Dutch are great people that know a lot about virtualization. I heard there are a large number of Dutch VCPs. That is great as far as I’m concerned!

    @peter.e You’re welcome. It was kind of a cheesy post but I figure something is better than nothing. As always thanks for following and be sure to visit VMPEOPLE.NET when you get a chance.
