[Discuss] Revisiting VMWare ESX backup options

Richard Pieri <richard.pieri at> notes my head-in-clouds idealism:

And another reason for my head being in the clouds on this one (yeah, I love
that Cloud buzzword): getting in the daily habit of something the business
world's already doing makes the same sense to me as switching from subversion
to git, setting up multi-factor authentication, or (as I'm doing now) learning
to code in python instead of ruby or php before that or perl or...  Why not
embrace these technologies before one's old habits become obsolete, and
gradually limit career options?
