I am looking to start using virtualization.
I will want to run a few servers (some Linux and some Windows), and at least on Mac machine for iphone development.
I am somewhat overwhelmed by the amount of different products that VMWare are offering.
Where should I start? and how do I select the right product for me?
Can VM's be moved between the different products (Workstation, Player, Server, Fusion, vSphare...)?
How important is planning on this case? - what happens if I start using workstation and it turns out that I actually need server? (or the other way around).
Are there any limitations that I should be aware of if I want to store the virtual machines on a netgear readyNAS ? and is it a good idea to do this any way ?
Is there some big product comparison table somewhere?
Are there any other good alternatives for VMWare that support pc & linux servers as well as MAC machnies ?
