ESX Server 3i presentation

Loads of good information on the next generation of hypervisor.

32 meg footprint which they say does not rely on a "general purpose OS" which means they have done away with Redhat I assume...
Multi-core processors
Extra memory banks for larger memory configs (at lower cost they say)
More NICs and PCI slots....
Diskless....

Check out page 11 where they talk about the Service Console...

And check out the patching method!!
ESX 3i Patching
Grab the pdf and see for yourself. It sounds exciting to me!
