    Sadly there isn't a break :( Broadcom when full-on stupid with their plans for VMWare. I don't nearly have the infrastructure you're having to manage (roughly 256 cores for my 6 hosts) and as a Non-profit the pricing just isn't sustainable.
  2. Is licensing holding you back from going EPYC?

    This is roughly correct.. I don't believe you can under-license the cores and get things to work (license for 16 cores when you have 32 available on the CPU). Broadcom is hacking the living daylights out of the product to make it completely unusable by small/medium sized business and home...
  3. Is licensing holding you back from going EPYC?

    There is a Migration path directly from XO for ESXi VMs to XCP-NG. It's currently bugged if you use the latest "Release" version of 8.2.1 for XCP-NG and it's supposedly fixed in the 8.3-B2 release of XCP-NG. I'm going to be playing with an upgrade of my testbench to 8.3-B2 and try another set...
  4. Is licensing holding you back from going EPYC?

    Licensing has been the sole reason why I haven't gone apeshit on building a killer host with dual EPYC's in it. I'm in the process of testbenching XCP-NG though, and very well may make a cluster of dual EPYC's (for HA/Redundancy) for the majority of guests.

  6. What's the best way to use Windows only for gaming?

  11. If you're on the VMWare Platform, what are you doing now?

    Looks as though the Broadcom's completion of the acquisition of VMWare, and their deciding to kill off perpetual licensing, what are your plans going forward if you're in the ESXi world? I myself, working for a non-profit organization, can't afford the per-core-a-year pricing they've...

  13. Where to Find a Launch Day 4070 Ti SUPER GPU

    The only reason to jump on this card would be if you were 20 series or lower with respects to what you currently have. My 3070 and 3080 pack more than enough gaming power for what I need, and I'd rather spend that money on the 50 series when the time comes, as I'm sure that performance...
