Reading Time: 3 minutes E2EVC Virtualization Conference is an independent, non-commercial, virtualisation community event build from experts to experts. The main goal is to bring the best virtualisation experts together to exchange knowledge and to establish new connections. E2EVC is a weekend crammed with presentations, Master Classes and discussions delivered by both virtualisation vendors product teams and independent experts.

Reading Time: < 1 minute As you can notice in the VMware’s certifications planner, the End User Computing (EUC) path has slightly changed in some names: the related VCDX (not yet available) is simple called VCDX-Desktop (and no more VCDX-DT) and the same apply for VCP-Desktop (funny that in other point is still called VCP-DT). Remember also that the related VCP has two different path (as all other VCPs): one is the VCP-Desktop exam (that cover also the vSphere part) and one is VMware View exam. But the interesting aspect is the “Workforce Mobility” related to new Associate level (VCA): […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes A VCDX Bootcamp is a half day session (little less) that can really help you in the VCDX preparation, expecially to understand the entire VCDX process with more attention on the application and the defense part. In my opinion could be a must for each new VCDX (I wasn’t so lucky and I wasn’t able to attend it). There is also a book: VCDX Boot Camp: Preparing for the VCDX Panel Defense. But honestly be part at this live experience could be completly different.

Reading Time: < 1 minute Finally, after the official announce of one month ago the new vCloud Suite 5.5 it’s in GA and available on the download site. Also the documentions site has been update to the new product. Note that existing 5.x licenses still works with the new products.

Reading Time: 6 minutes There are just three weeks until VMworld 2013 EU at Barcelona! I’ve already explain why attend at this event, now I also collect some (I hope useful) informations (like done in the previous year).

Reading Time: 9 minutes Now that both Microsoft and VMware have officially announced the new released of their virtualization products it’s possible make an homogenous comparison between Hyper-V 2012 R2 (the fourth generation of Hyper-V) and vSphere 5.5. VMware vSphere 5.5 introduces several news and scalability improvements, on the other side Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 R2 consolidate its features and improve what was already existing in the 2012 version, with a limited (but significant) new features. For example now, finally, some VMware old date features are mainstream also in Hyper-V, like VM hot cloning, hot disk resize (in this case […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 R2 has been announced some months ago with the announce of new Microsoft OSes and will be officially available on October 2013 (actually the RTM it’s already available for OEM and people with Technet/MSDN subscription access). Scalability aspects has not been changed, so limits are just the same. But there are several other improvements.

Reading Time: 4 minutes Probably in VMware vCloud Suite 5.5 announce, most of the attention has gone on the news related to VMware vSphere 5.5 and the new products (like NSX and VSAN). But there are some significant news also in the new vCloud Director 5.5, most are well described in the What’s New with VMware vCloud Director® 5.5 document and this official blog.

Reading Time: 3 minutes With the announce of the new VMware vCloud Suite 5.5, there are some new features and also several improvements. We have already discuss about the new limits of VMware vSphere 5.5, let’s consider the other aspects. First we have to say that, as usually, most of the new features or technologies are almost related to the Enterprise Plus edition… that means no significant changes for the SMB segment. Editions remain the same of vSphere 5 and the comparison tables are already updated to the new version. Also the Licensing, Pricing and Packaging document has been […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes There is only 1 month left until the European edition of VMworld 2013 and the main reason on why attend at this event is really simple: if you have lost the US edition you cannot lost also this one :) Another reason, but only for VMware partners, is that the first day (Monday) is a dedicated Partner Day. It will consist in keynotes, focused breakout sessions covering VMware products, pricing and programs, and network with peers. Considering the lack of a real European VMware Partner Exchange, this is a good partner’s momentum.

Reading Time: 2 minutes The new releases of Windows OS products (both Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2) are actually in a RTM state for OEM and will be public available on October (probably the 17th or the 18th). Actually, in the last days, Microsoft has announced that the RTM is also available on MSDN and Technet. Or you can simple ask to download the evaluation product (but in this case it’s just a beta version).

Reading Time: 2 minutes Recently I’ve got a strange issue with an Dell EqualLogic environment and I’ve not found any useful info about the related error message: Subsystem: MgmtExec Event ID: 8.3.48 Schedule Replica oraria aborted because the group was too busy processing a max-keep value change to create the operation scheduled for time …

Reading Time: 3 minutes Duncan Epping has wrote (on 2010) a nice post with the meaning of several, not too obvious, VMware acronyms used sometime in some product name, but usually in the internal process or file name. In those post you can found also some interesting facts about the meaning and the origin of some names. Now I’ve just put a copy here and short the list alphabetically and also added some new entries:
