Out with Xen, in with VMware

After having such disappointing performance on our trustworthy PowerEdge 2850 running Xen on top of CentOS 5.5, I decided to see if things looked better on the other side of the VM fence with VMware's ESXi server. I have to say things are running much better.

I had a PowerEdge 1850 that hasn't been tasked yet and figured that would be a good place to start. This machine is anemic compared to the 2850 (Which is no powerhouse either)

Content Management Systems

A Content Management System is also known as CMS and is a web based application that allows an easy way for lay people to manage the content of a complex web site. The CMS will provide a method for the managers of the site to create content without the worry of "breaking" the site. The site is created by a programmer with one or more templates so that a consistent look and feel is maintained throughout.
