MacBook Air Contest and Poll: What Application(s) Make Up the Biggest Workload for Your Virtual Servers?

What workloads are you running under virtualization, and what are you holding back?

That’s the question for ReadWriteCloud’s October contest. Virtualization providers like VMware and hardware partners like Intel say that almost all workloads are suitable for virtualization. What workloads are you running under virtualzation today, and what are you holding back? Do you have workloads you’re worried about moving to virtualization? If so – why?

The prize? A light, sleek MacBook Air. All you need to do is submit the best comment right here on this post, and you’ll be taking home a MacBook Air! Participating is easy, you just need a Disqus account, and make sure you follow the rules.

We know ReadWriteCloud readers have been tackling virtualization projects for years. But lots of organizations have held back some of their workloads, and we’d like to know what, and why. We’re also encouraging readers to participate in our poll, but don’t delay – the poll and contest close on November 20th. But be sure to respond in the comments as well, to get a chance to win a sweet MacBook Air.

To win, you need to comment by end of day, November 20th. We’ll announce the winner shortly thereafter. You can’t win if you don’t respond, so fire up the keyboard and let us know what made your most successful virtualization project a winner. We’re eager to read your responses!

Update: We have a winner. The best response is from David Adams, who’s the CTO of a startup software company that makes automation systems for the travel industry. (VIP Event Resources.) Congrats, David!
