I am planning to use a computer to run virtual machines.I have some confusion as to which would be the best choice.
VMware server (running ontop some optimized linux) : I tried this, but with an old computer, it was really slow running more than 3 vms. But it was old computer (Sempron 1gb ram) and linux host was ubuntu with a lot of services running.Since the server will be using an intel core 2 ... Does vmware support intel-vt?
VMware ESXi (or something similar but the free version) : never tried this out, limited hardware compatiliy...I dont think this will work in home computer.
Xenserver 5.5 : I tried this out today, but its failing a lot. Not much support and also no wifi nic are working, not local storage was being listed, no dvd drives listed... xencenter only works in windows and same subnet...
I am planning to go with option 1, but anyother ideas?
