Good for VMware, but why do they have to spam the hell out of me with emails urging me to "reclaim [my] week-ends" from the "3 upgrades, 15 warm sodas" hell... which is supposed to be solved because virtualization allows you to do the upgrades during work hours, apparently.
First, I don't drink soda, and certainly not warm soda. Second, if the reason you do the upgrades during the week-end is to avoid disruption, either you're not very good at what you do or your boss is a cheapstake. In the first case chances are that you will end up working on week-ends even with virtualization. In the second case you're not likely to get that purchase order for VMware signed anyway.
Thirdly, I don't like the idea of having my redundancy managed with a tool that a moron could use, because it means that sooner or later a moron (PHB?) will try, and they will make a mess that I will end up having to fix.
Lastly, whenever possible I like my redundancy at the physical level, thank you very much. It might be more expensive, but it's safer.
PS having 2 tickboxes on your "spam subscription management" page, one to opt in and one to opt out, and opting in everyone who doesn't either opt in or out might have looked clever when they thought of it, but it doesn't reflect well on their company ethos. Cheeky monkeys.
