XenServer to VMware Jingle [to the tune of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air]

I’m currently on a project converting from XenServer hosts over to VMware vSphere and while doing some routine research, ran across this clever (although nerdy) lyric parody on a forum.

Now this is the story all about how
Our life got flipped, turned upside down
And we’d like to take a minute, so just sit right there
And we’ll tell you how all how we moved to VMware.

In Xenserver Enterprise, born and raised
In the server room where we spent most of our days
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
And all shooting all the servers into the pool
When a couple of updates, they were up to no good
Started making trouble in our neighborhood
We had numerous crashes and the users got scared
So we said "We’re moving all the servers onto VMware"

We asked for advice and it became clear
VMware is the game that we should play here
If anything I could say that this software was rare
But I thought nah, forget it, let’s get on VMware!

We started moving servers about seven or eight
And couple of days later we were almost straight
Looked at our kingdom we were finally there
Sitting all our servers on VMware!

The original posting was on a SpiceWorks forum here a couple months ago:

Feel free to vote it up on Reddit if you liked it.   I thought it was really clever stuff and wanted to share.  It was also pretty timely for me since I’m in the midst of this project which probably upped it’s entertainment value for me a bit more.

-Happy Friday!
