Free books (yesterday's and today's were virtualization-related)

Just in case y'all missed it, Packt Publishing is _still_ running their "free book every day" offering. Yesterday's book was "Citrix XenServer 6.0 Administration Essential Guide".

SQL proxies

Will be taking a look at the following (mentioned in last night's class), just to see any can be used in conjunction with a lab config for ESXi 5.0:

  • Tungsten - can translate between SQLs but unsure if it's replication or proxying 
 Will keep y'all posted.
