Colleagues,

There is much about the iPad form factor that is intriguing to me. Also the cost and what I call the "appliance-like" functionality make it very appealing. There are even some apps like iMovie and garage band that seem to gain some very real advantages over their counterparts on a full-fledged PC.

I am also painfully aware of their limitations.

Nevertheless, I often wonder if the form factor of a slate based tablet isn't simply going to become the de-facto standard in schools over the next few years.

I am curious to know if anyone out there has heard of a school with an established 1:1 laptop program making a switch to iPads or similar devices.

Anyone?   Anyone?...

Trevor

Hi Trevor,

There is a 54-post long thread about this topic on ISED-L. The post started on 4/13 and the latest post was yesterday but it looks like it has petered out. I haven't taken the time to read it myself yet so I don't know if it has any useful info. I've attached the thread as a pdf. You can also see it on the ISED-L archives:

Hi Everyone,

 

Sorry for the cross-post for some of you.  Is anyone using Microsoft Hyper V for server virtualization or considering it?

 

Thanks.

Mark,

In my experience Microsoft Hyper V is not a very stable platform for running more than a few VM's on it. I would recommend VMWare.

We are running it - my preference would have been to use VMWare but that was out of our price range even on the academic/non-profit pricing.  It is not running what most would consider a high volume deployment but runs fine with the 4-5 VM's.

Agreed, look into the vsphere education starter pack, three hypervisor licenses and includes vmotion.

We run several dozen servers on Hyper-V successfully for little cost.  I’d encourage purchasing Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 to take full-advantage of hardware moves and P2V conversions.

Good Morning Mark,

 

Here in the College of Sciences we use VMWare, and have for the last 6 years or so.  At the time we decided, Hyper-V wasn’t really an option.

 

From some of the presentations at MMS and feedback from my staff, Hyper-V has come a long way, and integrates better with Windows.  For instance, no tools needing to be installed to operate between VM and Host OS.

 

Not at a point where we want to switch, especially since we’ve sunk costs into VMWare.  But, if we started the evaluation today, Hyper-V would be in the running, for sure.

 

Hope this helps,

 

JP
