Reading Time: 7 minutes For people, like me, that are missing this VMworld US, there is a great recap about the VMware related news and announces. Some new products has been announced, some products have change their name, some new released have been reveal. Let’s see most of them.

Reading Time: 3 minutes Of course, in this VMworld 2014 there is space also for NSX with lot of sessions, user cases and related news. Related news maybe are not so big as in the past year (the first official announce of NSX), but anyway there is something interesting. First to all the certification path on Network Virtualization: as written in a previous post, there are already the first (big) group of VCDX-NV. Now the certification page is update also with the blueprint for VCDX-NV and VCP-NV (you can already ask for the authorization for it) and the new […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes As written in the previous post, there are different approaches for implement a SDDC and EVO:RAIL represent the VMware’s way for implement fast and in a simple way an Hyper-Converged Infrastructure. EVO represents an entire new family of Hyper-Converged Infrastructure offerings from VMware, and EVO:RAIL represents the first product in this family. It was announced in this VMworld 2014 (with a first list of EVO partners) and will be available during the second half of 2014.

Reading Time: 3 minutes The 2014 edition of VMworld US is started and, as usal, there are several news related to the VMware world (by the way, if you are not attending at VMworld, don’t miss the VMware NOW online event). Some are well know (like VVOLs or recent company acquisition), other will revealed during this event.

The VM is still present (and […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes I’ve already write about Atlantis ILIO USX in some previous posts (for example look at the one related to Virtualization Field Day 3). Their solution is a in-memory software-defined storage solution that pools existing SAN, NAS and DAS from across the datacenter and then optimizes how server applications and VMs consume this storage. Now Atlantis Computing has announced the new version 2.0 of this product with the promise to enable enterprises to deliver better than flash performance, for half the cost of traditional SAN. With USX they are jumping in the storage world making their […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes In the past days a new bunch of VCDXs (around 30) are appear, but the interesting news is that they are (or at least most of them) VCDX-NV: the new track specific for Network Virtualization (that mean mainly VMware NSX). Seems that they are all coming from the NSX Ninja program and most of them where already Cisco CCIE (matching the criteria described on the VCDX-NV official web page). This also may confirm that there isn’t a real VCAP level for the NX path (as already commented in a previous post and also supposed in this […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes Veeam has released another great free tool: Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V. Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V is also one of the many new features in Veeam Management Pack v7 for System Center. Veeam Task Manager provides detailed Hyper-V performance monitoring metrics for CPU and memory at the individual VM level so you can identify which VMs are using the host resources. The metrics are updated every three seconds by default and can be configured to update less frequently if desired. And Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V is not only free, but is also a portable […]
