Anyone working with VMware vSphere 4 yet?
I was just curious to see if any of my fellow geeks have started working with vSphere 4.0 yet (aka VMware ESX 4). I just got tapped by my company to do a small deployment for a customer. It will be my 21st virtual datacenter deployment but my first with the new product.
I also got lucky and was picked to take the beta exam for the vSphere VCP. So I get to be one of the first people to be certified on the new product.
For those of you that don't know. VMware vSphere (formerly Virtual Infrastructure) is a virtualized datacenter. It allows you to run large numbers of virtual machines based on Windows, Linux, Solaris, and other 32 and 64bit OSes. It allows companies to greatly reduce the amount of hardware they need as well as other operating expenses like power and cooling, datacenter floorspace, etc, etc.. There are a lot of companies out there looking to reduce those costs so I'm in pretty high demand these days. It is a skill set that I recommend if you're a WinTel sys admin and you want to greatly increase your value.
So is there anyone else out there working with this?
