- The hp.com home page for VirtualSystem is easy to find: www.hp.com/go/VirtualSystem.
- Finding the VirtualSystem (VS2) for RedHat might not be so easy so here's a link to that.
- Brent mentioned a white paper for the RedHat reference architecture - I searched my email and found a link to that. The paper is titled, "HP VirtualSystem VS2 for Red Hat - Reference architecture for building a Red Hat Enterprise Virtuali..."
- The hp.com page for CloudSystem is also an easy one to remember: www.hp.com/go/CloudSystem
I probably won't have another blog post before the Christmas holiday so I want to take a moment to wish you and your loved ones a peaceful, wonderful Christmas time. Hug your kids and tell them you love them and say a prayer for all those hurting from the events in Connecticut.
And on a lighter note - Go Boise State Broncos! Yes, I'll be making my yearly trek to Boise State's bowl game, this year in Las Vegas. I just haven't been to Las Vegas enough in the last 12 months!
