comment Conceptual: Reselling ISP services (vISP?)
It depends on how you define ISP... ISP is someone who provides an internet connection. Technically speaking, in my home, i am an ISP to my Sister and to anyone else using the Wifi... Larger ISPs need to run cables, own datacenters, etc, but smaller ones can rent a lot of stuff from an upstream provider. In reality, BitBuzz are an ISP, since they provide me with internet connectivity in some areas of Ireland. they do have their own Infrastructure, but a lot of it is piggybacking on other providers (Eircom, for example, are mostly used for broadband, from what i have seen).

comment Automating the creation of SQL servers
I clarified the question above, but its just SQL. the VMWare tool would be overkill for what i need (only 1 or 2 MySQL boxes, no Postgres or Oracle boxes for production...).

comment Where should SCVMM be installed?
Thanks! that makes my life easier. I suppose, probably best to keep a replica on both machines with the 2012 replication feature, and if one goes down, stat it on the other... Thanks again!

comment Migrating VMs from Hyper-V 2008 R2 to 2012
Ok, so by the looks of things, my main workstation will be the easiest to upgrade, so this will work for it... My Mac Pro, on the other hand, will need a full reinstall... only a handful of VMs on there, so a quick Powershell script should do the job.
