I was just watching the Drummonds vs Crosby debate. Many people have analyzed the videos already but the one worth reading is the article by Mr Stevie Chambers. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look it’s definitely worth it. One thing I would like to note is that in my opinion this was the wrong match. I don’t think Crosby is a performance expert. He seems to be more focused on: sales pitch, eula’s and features included in the hypervisor but not in Xenserver. In other words, Drummonds definitely won… knock out in the third round by EPT 😉
Now, my comment to Citrix… As Scott openly challenged you guys to show benchmark reports(Spec etc) and compare them to VMware’s reports please step up to the plate! That’s what ours and your customers would like to see!
