Job at Novell

Well… I didn’t get a chance to post earlier, but as of last Tuesday I started working for Novell as part of the Novell Virtualization Team. I’m really excited because the position is part of the QA department testing XEN. There is tons of information to learn though and almost a bit overwhelming, but none the less its going to be a lot of fun. I’ve finally been able to install and run a virtualized OS. My first was SLES 9 just a couple days ago. We are using an updated SLES 10 and seems to be working really well so far. I even installed a couple windows versions. As I’m still learning, I’ve only install and updated the guest OSes. Hopefully in the not too distant future I’ll be able to start doing some cool things with the guests. Some of the servers that we are testing on are really cool. I think all of them are at least 2 processors(AMD or Intel) that have 2-4 cores each and tons of memory. From just messing with it, I can’t wait to play with it some more.
