The VMworld TV is a video channel (on Youtube), similar to the VMware TV, where is possible see interview to some well-know people (but also “normal” people) or watch some reports or opinions on the days or the sessions at the VMworld. Is another form of communication that fit well and complement the other for for social media. One interesting news of this year is the introduction of the VMware Community TV, that is a video channel (this time with livestream), that John Troyer gives to be used from the communities, VMUG, vExpert, … or […]
The VMworld Europe 2011 will start today at Bella Center (at Copenhagen, like last year). For the VMware Partners it was already started yesterday. In this days, probably I will not post on my blog, to be focused on the event. Of course I will tweet, so you can follow me on twitter (Segui @Andrea_Mauro). About Twitter remember also that: Main conference Twitter account to follow: @vmworld Main conference hashtag to use in all your tweets: #vmworld Other hashtags: #vTweetup, #vmworld3word
I would like to add some more notes to my previous list for who will attend at VMworld Europe at Copenhagen: Sessions: unlike other people I’ve chose to do not publish sessions that I attend and to not promote any particular sessions. It’s too subjective the choice, and what I can like does not mean that must like also to other people… Also I think that who attend at VMworld is smart enough to choose his sessions :) But remember to share your option on each sessions (note that, for Twitter, there is a specific hashtag for each […]
Some days ago I’ve receive this email, that seems to be a spam: The verified version of VMWARE Users list is releasing on October 19th, 2011. Would you like to have a copy of the same at a low investment? You would get information such as Contact Name, Company Name, Title, Phone & Fax, Mailing Address and Business Email Address. We are providing it to only 5 customers on a first come first serve basis. So hurry and grab a copy of the same. The sender domain does not have a web page, there is […]
There are only two weeks left to VMworld Europe 2011, and probably there are also some promotion code left (search at vendor site or forum). This event is a great opportunity for training and information with a lot of sessions (and note that is possible watch at them also later), but I see at least two good reasons to attend at this kind of events (and not only VMworld): Hands-on Labs: they are great and cover the latest (or future) products. Network: meet and know people is invaluable. But of course there can be also […]
On the VMTN Blog (the official blog of the VMware Community) today there is my “vExpert Spotlight”: http://blogs.vmware.com/vmtn/2011/09/vexpert-spotlight-andrew-mauro.html How did you get into IT in the first place? I’ve started (a lot of years ago) with a Commodore 64, but only with my first experience on a PC (with MS-DOS) I understand that this passion would also be my possible work area. During University, I also played with Linux distributions and this gave me a better understanding of Operating Systems and networking. Things are really change. Now start in IT is simpler and cheaper (I remember […]
As you can see the blog name has changed from Virtual Infrastructure to vInfrastructure, and also the URL has changed from http://virtual-infrastructure.it to the short one http://vinfrastructure.it. But don’t worry, the contents remain the same (and will grow again) and the previous links will still work.
In a physical environment usually the term CPU is used to refer to the physical package (or socket). The real processing unit inside this package are called cores (and not that each core can have inside more ALU and can be seen as more logical cores with hyper-threading feature). More CPU usually define a SMP system, more cores a multi-core CPU, more CPU each with more cores a complex system (usually the NUMA architecture is used in this case). In a virtual enviroment the term vCPU is used to refer to a core assigned to […]
vStorage API Introduced for the first time in vSphere the vStorage API are specific functions to permit an integration more thight with external storage functions.
