+ - Hypervisors Compared w/Collaborative Web Interface

Submitted by mr_majestyk
mr_majestyk (671595) writes "This online Collaborative Product Evaluation from the IT research firm Ideas International compares the functional capabilities of three x86 server virtualization platforms: Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware Infrastructure 3, and Citrix XenServer 5.0. The comparison is based on a scorecard that compares those products across 60 functional details in five categories, which IDEAS claims is the most comprehensive functional comparison yet of the leading x86 hypervisor technologies. The CPE interface allows visitors to weight any functional level by priority to get a customized ranking of the products. Also, if they want, visitors can add their own ratings of specific product attributes if they agree/disagree with the "expert" assessment of IDEAS analysts."

I've never been canoeing before, but I imagine there must be just a few simple heuristics you have to remember... Yes, don't fall out, and don't hit rocks.

Working...
