Subject Re: VMware and NFS

I typically use Ubuntu for the management server; however, today I needed
to install CloudPlatform (the Citrix-branded version of CloudStack) on
CentOS and it seemed to work fine with XenServer (I didn't try it with
VMware).

I had my NFS share for secondary storage on Ubuntu still, though.
