I just began the wonderful life as an IT Security Administrator. I am learning the PCI PA-DSS side of things right now. After reading various threads on how members aquire SGI equipment, what do we all do?

another 10 week contract as cad operator starts next monday for me, and hopefully that will be my last indoor job for quite some time (until next winter maybe)

also a university student for another year or two until I graduate.

and the rest of my life is up in the air :mrgreen:

That's interesting. I'm involved pretty heavily in virtualization also. Are you focused more on the server side or desktops (VDI)? Which Hypervisors do you typically employ?

sr. software engineer.

Everything from device drivers to GUI applications. Lots of platforms, incl. UNIX (commercial & oss), Windows, RT and embedded systems (VxWorks & co) and even bare metal (FPGA boards without a 'real' OS).

Is there any other competitor than VMware? 8-)
No, seriously. Done large amounts of VMware ranging all the way back since 2.5 and touched Hyper-V in (very) small installations. I know only one customer running Xen. I mostly go for server virtualization and the biggest customer are running a couple of hundred virtual servers on NetApp storage via NFS.
Regarding VDI I have only done some (regular) VMware View installations, but the most interesting project was SunRay + VMware View.
