comment IP Routing on All Switches or just Core
Can not be answered like this - that may or may not be good, depending what you do. In the standard simple scenarios - no, no need to do routing.

comment CPU at 50%, Yet IIS/ASP.net Requests still being queued
What about disc load? I can see a scenario that uses up all standard allocated threads but not all cpu because it has another bottleneck - and IO is the most likely culprit.

comment How much contention is too much in VMware?
Is that VMWare idiocy still in place? Hyper-V had the same - in the initial version and it got handled out as soon as possible. Now cores are independently scheduled. I can not imagine this still being the case for VmWare in the current version.

comment How to close cd tray in Windows Server 2012 r2
According to google that is one of those. No automatic closing. Google for "Matshita uj8e1 picture". It would also not be USB attached... this is one of these super slim getting sometimes integrated into 1RU cases.

comment HyperV External Switch Multiple VMs
Badly configured VM's. Are they cloned? Copied? So that they share the same MAC address?

comment AWS EC2 Looses public Internet after install Visual Studio 2013
No experience with AWS, but i use a ton of virtual machines and quite a lto have VS installed. NEVER had that issue. I think you bark the wrong tree - the real reason is something different.

Ok, for that use case they may be a replacement.

comment Deploy Microsoft Work Folders on a single machine
Why do you get an idea a work folder is a replacement for a VPN?

comment Multiple Web Server VMs or a Single VM with virtual hosts?
Even if it can - it will use a TON more ressource and is wasteful. I am quite sure he did not calculate it through - at 256MB per VM 300 VMs are 75GB memory... and that is a VERY small vm.

comment Multiple Web Server VMs or a Single VM with virtual hosts?
To be concrete - that would be 200-300 VM's to patch and the overhead of 200-300 kernels would be brutal compared to virtual hosts. Someone did not do his math basics here. A separate VM is nice, but not for a smalllllish website.

comment Cluster computing over Wifi
@echo_salik Ancient? With all respect, all computers I bought in the last 15 years had a NIC on board. And anything older than that is not worth the effort.

comment Cluster computing over Wifi
Nic's? Do your motherboards not come with a NIC on board? Or two ;) And for 1gigabit - CAT 5 is good enough.

comment What's the point in redirecting users to “www2.”?
@AndréDaniel that may break with caching AND it requires a lot more infrastructure than most DNS providers are providing.

comment What's the point in redirecting users to “www2.”?
On top, you can do an intelligent redirect here - redirecting to a server close if they are in different locations. This is not really doable with anything transparent short of owning the ip address range and manipulating the routing.
