If you’ve been following my writings on ZDNet for the last several years, you’ve probably realized by now that I am something of a virtualization and server technology junkie.

In my day job at IBM Global Technology Services, I spend a great deal of time with these technologies, helping my customers attain greater server efficiency and density in their datacenters.

Figuring out how to fine-tune and optimize server and datacenter infrastructure is what I do, and in doing so I get to play with any number of virtualization and server operating stacks from all kinds of vendors. This includes Mid-range UNIX virtualization stacks such as IBM’s own PowerVM, Oracle’s Solaris Zones, VMware vSphere and also to a much more limited extent, Microsoft’s Hyper-V.
