I agree that any server used for ESXI or any other use should be on current firmware and that includes option cards before installing any OS. If you have vCenter you can keep track of the patches available for ESXI servers. Apply then during a scheduled maintenance cycle…

If you want a Linux based solution with better VM support and management Red Hat Enterprise costs less than the two big players. The new York Stock Exchange tested and is implementing the released version. I have been viewing the Red Hat sessions that are covering this.

All the comments on VDI VMware has Horizon 6 that is vast improvement. The hired one of the Citrix Engineers and added a lot of applications related deployment capabilities. I saw a demo of pushing office to an IPAD. It lacks I few services that a third party can cover.

About me

I am actively looking for a new job
My job search is centered around the Pittsburgh, PA area. I do not have the option to relocate or work out of town for extended periods.

I am different type of It professional. I can teach and mentor, I have maintained documentation for every company I have worked with. I also fix problems be they IT related hardware,software or security related issues. Also I fixed a database that had duplicate entries in it that do not match a master database that I also had submit corrections to. I was told by doctor to lower my cholesterol and I did the research and went though a life style change. I lost over 40 pounds and 2 inches of my waist. I am lighter than when I graduated for high school 6 foot and 182 pounds 8 pounds less.
I have been in leadership roles and I have worked independently and as part of a team. I have been counted on as technical resource and have also been used to "fix" Customer Relation issues that some of them required traveling to different states. I am known as a good listener.
My security focus started 12 years ago. Endpoint protection, verifiable Backups and user rights management. I have stetup roles based management with groups in window 2008 R2. I learned a long time ago that trusting in technology without training users is a major issue. Reading multiple Security reports drive home that point. Users with admin rights can break the security of a company. Also recently watching different web sessions I found IPSwitch can help with some compliance issues (PCI) and secure file transfer. I am constantly reading and watching web sessions from multiple vendors for technical and security related information as I wait for my next employment opportunity.
