The vSphere Client for iPad is an application created by VMware to give a minimum vSphere management ability also from a tablet (at least for some operational management tasks). The first official release was on March 2011. But this application require a special architecture on infrastructure side, ad well described in one Jason Boche post: there must be a special “proxy” server that convert the output of vCenter Server in a simple way useful to be managed from mobile device. This “proxy” is available from VMware as a virtual appliance and can be downloaded from […]

The first version of the native View for iPad (both iPad and iPad2 models) was released on March 2011. It was the first (and as I know the only) that introduce the PCoIP support, because other existing solution, like the Wyse client (PocketCloud), were only compatible with RDP. Some days ago a new version 1.2 has been released on iTunes… with several improvements: Optimized for VMware View 5 with improved performance (but note that also previous versions work with View 5) Support for iOS 5 including AirPlay Presentation Mode for use with external display and […]

As written in a previous post the current version of Veeam Backup (5.o.2) works also with vSphere 5, due to the compatibility of most of the vStorage API for backup. But to be honest there is some issue, like for example in the usage of the SAN transport mode. Veeam has publish a post on his blog, to announche the release of a hotfix on 20 October, 2011, to FULLY support vSphere 5. One of the main issues with Veeam Backup & Replication 5.0.2 was that it didn’t work for all processing modes with VMSF5 […]

Source: VMware vSphere 4.1 Update 2 Released The VMware vCenter Server 4.1 Update 2 release offers the following improvements: Support for new processors: vCenter Server 4.1 Update 2 supports hosts with processors on AMD Opteron 6200 series (Interlagos) and AMD Opteron 4200 series (Valencia). Note: For the AMD Opteron 6200 and 4200 series (Family 15h) processors, vCenter Server 4.1 Update 2 treats each core within a compute unit as an independent core, except while applying licenses. For the purpose of licensing, vCenter Server treats each compute unit as a core. For example, although a processor […]

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 […]

Finally, after several problems and delays in shipment, I’ve received the VCDX4 welcome kit (with the letter dated “November 12, 2010“) relative of my upgrade of previous VCDX3 certification. As already written by several VCDXs, the certify is now only a paper version, with the wall plate (but I suppose that probably for new VCDX4 this version is still there). Apparently there isn’t any shirt with the welcome kit… but in the letter is included a specific voucher to have it from the VCDX4 Store.

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

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.
