Jeff (and everyone),
on your web page, you claim that UML would be useful as a virtual web
server, but don't know anyone using it as such...
I had to try it - UML was my last hope.
It all started many, many moons ago. The owner of
http://www.equineestates.com/ had a falling out with their then-systems
administrator, and came to me for help. I took over, and things were
fine for a while.
One of my assigned tasks was to build a new server with all modern
hardware (the old server is about 5 years old, running RedHat 5.1),
complete with a mirrored RAID setup (I love fastrack controllers).
Got the new server built, loaded it with Debian (my preferred flavour),
and that's when things went bad. The old admin apparently learned while
he went. 4 different databases, 3 different installs of Apache, and a
bunch of hand-written scripts to keep everything going.
No way I could sort it all out easily - I know, I tried.
I imaged the whole thing, installed UML, and with some creative NATting,
its all running on the new server, giving me all the time I need to
clean up & move parts over piece by piece.
It works, it works well, and the speed is more than acceptable.
Thanks, Jeff (and the rest of the UML team). We couldn't have done any
of this in a decent time period without UML.
You can go ahead & put any part of this info on your site if you want,
as a testimonial.
