SoftElegance has successfully lanced XEN 4.0.0 on OpenSUSE 11.3 on Intel® Server System SR2600URBRP Server. The Server configuration is Intel Quad Xeon E5630, 12Gb of RAM, and MegaRAID SAS 9260-4i.
The main goal was to create virtual machines on this server to run MS SQL Server 2008 and TFS 2010. So we’ve created following OS:
- Windows Server 2008 RC2 with both MS SQL Server 2008 and MS SQL Server 2008 R2 to run different database instances for specific project’s requirements;
- Windows Server 2008 RC2 to run TFS 2010;
- FreeBSD 8.1 for other needs.
The General issues that could be a bottleneck for virtualizing are:

Manufacturing companies can now use reliable, wireless Panasonic Toughbook devices to improve yard communications, inventory management, and outdoor material tracking and reporting.
Panasonic Toughbooks are making industry easier: these devices are being used in warehouses, manufacturing plants, complex storage yard stretching several square miles, and indoor and outdoor warehouses where raw and refined products are stored. Forklift-mounted Toughbooks are also being used in the industry to help track product and inventory movement between locations.
Many manufacturing companies use manual processes to track inventory and provide project status updates. Over the years, these traditional methods have proven to be inefficient, costly, and time consuming for yard and shop employees, In the yard, lost inventory and products that can’t be located can negatively impact profitability. And, without a reliable way to track how many moves are made around the yard in a given day, many organizations lose money because they cannot determine the optimal number of employees and forklifts required for route optimization.

The Rational Unified Process® is a Software Engineering Process. It provides a disciplined approach to assigning tasks and responsibilities within a development organization. Its goal is to ensure the production of high-quality software that meets the needs of its end-users, within a predictable schedule and budget.
