    Ive read various opinions about installing and running VMware from a pen drive as opposed to running it from a HDD local on the server. Obviously the cost benefits are massive running it from a USB pen drive but there are concerns with reliability etc.

    Has anyone got it running on a USB drive in a production environment? If so what make and model of pen drive are you using? Im aware that you need to redirect your logs to another device which isn’t an issue and I was thinking just replicate the install of VMware on to a duplicate(s) pen drive for resiliencebackup.

    Any suggestions please? Thanks as always :)
