Virtual Machine – the New Way for Server Hardware?

On a client project, a new server has been provisioned 400GB HDD, 32GB RAM, Intel Xeon 5660 processor, CentOS 5 all in a virtual machine.

The virtualization is transparent to us, so we can configure, restart it, back it up without any issues.

Now we can test out running a MySQL database with all its data loaded in memory, all 4GB of it. This is going to be exciting, running a project where memory is not an issue 🙂
