Full migration almost done!

Yesterday I just finished the migration of all physical servers to the virtualized ones. Now We (as company) have 7 servers (2 win2k3 and 5 linux) into just one. And yes, we are the first Chilean enterprise using virtualization with Xen in our data center. That makes me really happy, because the idea of use Xen to virtualize the data center, use a new technology, and all those things makes the decision a little bit… complex.

Right now, servers are in a testing period before they can go to the production environment so any test must be done now! If you have any idea for testing, just let me know!

Introducing myself

As the title said, I’ll use this post to introduce myself to the Xen Community Blog: I’m a 25 years old networking engineer student (just one semester left!) and I’m also a Linux geek. I’m from Chile, and I met Xen about a year ago. Since then I’ve been studying about it and, obviously, working with it. I’m working as a Network and Security Administrator at Coorditel.

Right now I’m finishing a “virtualization project” that aims a 8 to 1 server consolidation. It’s been nice to work with Xen, and I can say that we are the first chilean enterprise that uses virtualization in its data center.

I hope my growing experience could be useful to the community. Experience that will be blogged here and also in my own blog :-)
