I kicked out VMWare and their "Windoze" tools i hate (i know that now 
they offer a VM with command line tools).  I'm not saying VMWare is not 
good though, it's just i hate their tools.  On top of that, it can cost 
a lot of money.  But they have the features!

I moved to KVM and i'd say i like it a lot.  I'm planning to test OpenStack.

For storage, big names (3Par, Netapp, etc) offer nice things but it is 
rather expensive.  I'm testing iSCSI servers with DRDB, STONITH, etc.

Idea is to use commodity hardware and standard software.  Nothing new 
and i'm not against commercial solution with support and all. It's just 
we try to offer affordable and open solutions.
