Re: [Xen-users] VMWare ESX on Xen (maybe OT)


100% OT, but ESX3, which is now public beta, supports iscsi rather well. 
It also supports NFS.

And yes, they integrated a TCP stack and the iscsi SW initiator and NFS 
stuff all into the VMkernel.

Check out www.vmware.com for more about ESX or mail me off-list.

Enough of this OT, please.
