1. Cluster load balancing using VMControl <br /> 2. Cluster Evacuation via LPM using VMControl <br /> 3. SSD - it'll be very common for sure. <br /> 4. what about SR-IOV adapters? <div>&nbsp;</div> basically Systems Director/VMControl in general will be big, they're finally making some real progress i feel; I also believe that VMWare has paved the way for this kind of approach to VM management. VMControl is going to be welcomed with open arms in mixed shops where the VIC rules the x86 landscape today. <div>&nbsp;</div> unfortunately while stuff like AME and pre-built appliance solutions are very cool, those kinds of technologies have a slower adoption rate because larger shops are more gun shy of where and how to implement these things.. the immediate benefits may not be so obvious when looking through the fog of IT organizations myriad of requirements/bureaucracy.. <div>&nbsp;</div> ah well, my 37 cents worth. <div>&nbsp;</div>

Thanks for your votes - I have added them to my spreadsheet. <br /> I will publish the graphs October 13th/14th <br /> It is getting very interesting and not what I thought would happen :-)

One thing with SR-IOV is that it does not work with LPM. We are a 100% virtualized shop with hundreds of LPARs. Downtime on a single application is difficult to get, but downtime for all apps running on a single frame is nigh impossible. We couldn't do firmware updates, or other sub-OS work without being able to move running LPARs from one frame to another.
