Reading Time: 5 minutes During the first European Tech Field Day Extra (at VMworld EU in Barcelona) one of the companies with the more technical presentation was Diablo Technologies. This company was founded in 2003 and they’re working on Memory Channel Storage (MCS) which is a very high performance host flash solution. There where Jerome McFarland (Principal Product Marketer, Diablo Technologies), Daniel Beveridge (Senior End User Computing Architect, VMware), Ricky Trigalo (Director Virtualization Solution Architecture, Diablo Technologies) to explain this kind of solution and how apply in virtualized environments.

Reading Time: < 1 minute Also this year I’m attending at the Powering the Cloud event (this was the report of past event). I’ve also written about the reasons to attend at this event, that remain almost the same each year. For sure it’s one of the most valuable events in Europe (after VMworld EU) and in Germany (there is also the CeBIT event, but has different target) and this year it also share the space and timing with the Data Centre World event.

Reading Time: 1 minute Some months after the announce of the version 4 of their product, NAKIVO Inc. has released the new NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5. This product is going to fill the features gap with other products introducing the Flash VM Boot feature that provides the ability to run VMware VMs directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups, without recovering the entire VMs first.

There are different options to renew your certificate, but for most VCP5-DCVs will need to renew their VCP5-DCV credential prior to March 10, 2015 (be sure to check on your myLearn transcript your deadline, some weeks ago has been updated for all). Specifically if you were not looking to expand to other solution tracks or advance to the VCAP level there is a streamlined exam that offers a quicker route to recertification for current VCP5-DCV holders.

Reading Time: < 1 minute During the last Tech Field Day extra at VMworld Europe after the first day there was an interesting roundtable discussion between the delegates. The topic was about hyper-convergence systems that was one of the hot themes during the VMworld, considering also the VMware announces. Of course EVO:RAIL was one of the main points, but not only and there were lot of interesting considerations.

Reading Time: 5 minutes During the first European Tech Field Day Extra (at VMworld EU in Barcelona) one of the companies was Veeam with an interesting session. Veeam does not need any introduction because it’s well know both in the data protection world and in the virtualization ecosystem. There were Doug Hazelman (VP or Product Strategy and Chief Evangelist at Veeam Software), Rick Vanover (Product Strategy Specialist and Community Manager at Veeam Software) and Luca Dell’Oca (EMEA Evangelist at Veeam).
