In previous posts related to vSphere 5 upgrade, I’ve talked several time about the HCL and his relevance. For a production environment, have a completed supported configuration, in each parts (hardware, software, firmware, …) IMHO is mandatory. But “not supported” not always means “not working”. There are different scenarios with an “unsupported configuration”:

In a vSphere upgrade process, there are two different approach for the host upgrade: a fresh re-install or a in-line upgrade. In the VMware site there is an interesting post about this choice. The differences between an upgraded host and a freshly installed host are:

Mike Laverick has started something of a petition to bring back the VMTN Subscription option: I would like to see VMware re-instate the “VMTN Subscription”. You might ask, what the hell is that? That would be fair enough because it was withdrawn many years ago, and never re-instated by VMware. The VMTN Subscription was similar to Microsoft MSDN or TechNet – where for relatively small yearly fee you could download the core enterprise software and run it for 1year. Right now there is whole legion of home-labbers out there that have to make do and […]

For the View client for iPad there is any other alternative application (at least with PCoIP support), but for the vSphere client for iPad there are some other applications that can work as well of the official VMware application… With the advantage to do not require any silly virtual appliance to act as a “mobiel proxy” and also to be able to work on iPhone and not only on iPad (IMHO I think that also the vSphere Client for iPad could be adapted to the iPhone screen). From the possible iOS applications there are: iVMControl: […]

For the VMworld scheduled in the next year there will be two wonderful locations (both are confirmed): VMworld 2012 US – San Francisco – Aug 27-30 2012 VMworld 2012 EU – Barcelona – Oct 16-18 9-11 2012 Both the city need at least one visit (and both require some days for a good visit…) and also the weather probably could be fine in those period… so which location? Both could be obvious, but also mean time (and money). I think that if you never been at one VMworld US edition, this could be the right […]

This European edition was the second time at Copenhagen, so we can make some comparison with the previous edition: General organization: seems better (one year of experience can help to improve). Transport: similar as last year (bus from the airport and free pass for metro/s-tog), but this time the main entrance was near the metro station. Bella Center: this time seems that was used an extended area, the resul was good and better than last year… more free space, relax area, lot of place to eat or simple sit, bigger reception… maybe the only flaw […]

Instead of give a opinion to each session of VMworld Europe 2011, I prefer point the best moments (maybe unique… for sure “priceless”) of this event: VMworld Community TV: as already written, it was a great opportunity to make a day report (in native language) of the event. Thanks again to John Troyer for this opportunity. VMUG.IT vBeer: on Monday evening there was the Italian vBeer with around 40 people… But the best moment was see Re Ferrè and Perilli discuss about cloud and all around it. vExpert Meeting: on the late afternoon of Tuesday […]

In this VMworld Europe edition there was a lot of Italy… On about 7000 attendee, around 250 were from Italy, that is quite a good number, considering that Copenhagen was not to a so “comfortable” location. And, of course, there was a good representative of the Italian VMUG, with 6 board members that have take the live broadcast on VMworld Community TV, the reports of the days and the events with blogs and tweets, the social relations, the meetings, … and the Italian vBeers on Monday with about 40 people. Also in the sessions there […]

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
