Well I just finished watching this 41minute long interesting debate between Scott Drummonds from VMware and Simon Crosby from Citrix. I have to say, it was almost like watching an action movie as there where some ‘sparks’ flying between the two. At the end the 2 were asked to shake hands, as you can see in the picture, Scott was willing to come closer to Simon then Simon wanted to be to Scott.

Besides the mud throwing, the debate was very interesting, especially to hear both guy’s perception on all the benchmarks that are out there.

Watch the debate here:

Extra: Steve Chambers (ex vmware) now working for Cisco, gave his extended thoughts on this video as well.
