Reading Time: 4 minutes I’ve already written some general considerations about the Tech Field Day events and now it’s the turn to write something particularly on the third edition of the Virtualization Field Day (#VFD3). The organization itself of this event is perfect and honestly the Stephen Foskett‘s idea to make the Tech Field Day is awesome and represent a big opportunity both for the vendors (that can spread the voice in a different way) and for the delegates (that can really learn a lot from new solutions and/or approaches). For this reason my first thanks goes to the entire […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes I’ve got the opportunity to revew a recent book on PowerCLI: Learning PowerCLI by Robert van Nieuwendijk. This book came from a different editors, compared to most of the VMware related books (from VMware Press) that is Packt Publishing and has several interesting books, most related with Developer related aspects. This book is a practical guide to get you started with automating VMware vSphere via PowerCLI in order to automate your VMware vSphere environment including hosts, clusters, storage, and vCenter Server virtual machines and networks. It also provide lot of practical examples to get to […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes Finally the results of the contest Voting for the 2014 top VMware & virtualization blogs are out on vSphere-land web site, after the live show where the top 25 were announced. My guess about the first of each category has almost been matched (where my first options in most cases). But according with this “spoiler” post there are several surprise in the top lists (maybe is becoming too much a popolarity contest, must is still one of the most followed). With a big surprise also this year I’ve received some votes and vInfrastructure site is […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes CloudPhysics announce with a blog post (Who’s minding your storage zoo? Try CloudPhysics new storage analytics) a new functions of their product: the storage analytics aim to provide data about your storage (and datastore) environment in order to resolve (or avoid) common issues, especially the storage capacity and performance aspects. Their SaaS solution is absolutely interesting and I’ve write about them in my #VFD3 report, but what is really interesting, like in this case, is that they are using customer’s feedbacks to improve the product and make their day-to-day virtual data center operations smoother.

Reading Time: 4 minutes During the second day of the third edition of Virtualization Field Day (#VFD3) one of the companies that we (as delegates) met was CommVault, a company in the backup and data protection field and, of course, in the virtualization environment. But it’s quite limiting say that it’s just a backup company (although it’s well know mainly for this aspect), backup and restore capability is obviously a core part of their service offering. And probably one of the limit of their presentations at #VFD3 was that they were too much focused only on the backup aspects, […]

Reading Time: 8 minutes During the first day of the third edition of Virtualization Field Day (#VFD3) one of the companies that we (as delegates) met was Pure Storage (in their cool office in Mountain View) that is a company in the storage world and of course also in the virtualization world. The realize storage both on the software and on the hardware part, although this second one is completely build by Pure Storage, expect the Lego version of their storage (that I suppose was the same used in this contest). Their solutions fits in the all flash enterprise […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes During the second day of the third edition of Virtualization Field Day (#VFD3) one of the companies that we (as delegates) met was Spirent, that was (at least for me) a new name in the virtualization ecosystem. The company itself is well know in other fields and area, especially in test, measurement and service assurance solutions. There where pioneered in testing of Ethernet networks, IP Telephony and VoIP, VPNs, Multiplay, Cloud Computing environments, Data Center networks, CDMA applications, and Location Based Services. Spirent’s lab test solutions are used to evaluate performance of the latest technologies. […]
