Reading Time: 2 minutes

On December, 4th 2017, I’ve been invited at the VMUG CZ Meeting and it was a nice opportunity to meet some friends (and know new friends).

It was also the opportunity to bring my experience with stretched clusters, mainly in VMware environment, in a presentation that I’ve titled “The dark side of stretched cluster“, in order to pointing not only at the pro of this configuration, but also at the possible cons.

The whole presentation is avalable on SlideShare at this link, or can be read also online in this page:

There is also a blog post with more information and more detail about those aspects.
