Earlier this week we read about how the demand for multi-hypervisor management via SCVMM 2008 was supposedly strong. I proposed that if there are so many people enjoying VMware VI3 management via SCVMM, surely someone would respond with feedback on their experience.
Lo and behold, “Fred” responded with this comment:
I am using SCVMM to manage ESX. It is actually cool to see both environments in a single console. Plus, since I will never be 100% virtualized (or at least in the next 3 years), I like Microsoft’s management story. The ability to manage both phyiscal and virtual workloads using Operations Manager is very nice and my management loves it.
Wow, Fred really has it made — he is using a single console to manage his physical and virtual workloads. Awesome!
But we have a small problem — “Fred” is not an actual customer. Fred is Microsoft. This comment came from a Microsoft-owned IP address:
Ouch! Fred, you really took one for the team this week.
