The Ten Commandments of Virtualization

1. You shall not install any otherĀ  hypervisor but ESXi.

2. You shall not make a non-optimized VDI image.

3. You shall not take the name of the Cloud in vain.

4. You shall not break the sabbath by using vMotion.

5. You shall not dishonor your snapshots by forgetting about them.

6. You shall not backup VM’s with software created for physical machines.

7. You shall not over provision VM’s.

8. You shall not steal companies licensing with ThinApp.

9. You shall not commit perjury with performance stats. If physical
database had a 16 disk LUN, don’t give the virtual database 3 disk LUN
and expected the same performance.

10. Hyper-V usersĀ  shall not covet.
