VMware vSphere 6.5 it’s quite popolar now, considering the deadline for the version 5.5 in this year and the direct upgrade path from v5.5 to v6.5. But maybe not everybody want to update vSphere 6.5 to Update 2, considering that there will be no upgrade path (yet) to version 6.7 and maybe other minor issues due to the backport of some features.

During the last years I hear from several people that the huge VMworld event is becoming less attractive. Several people just say (for different reasons) that they probably will not attent VMworld event… unless finally going anyway… But it’s VMworld still a valuable event? An unmissable event?

Runecast is a powerful tool to monitoring and check a vSphere environment and recently also for a VSAN environment. But it’s not over, actually there is a beta for the new version (Runecast version: 1.7.6 probably) that can analyze also NSX-V environments and this could be quite cool, considering the potentially complexity of a NSX infrastructure. I’ve tested the beta on a small lab, just to see how does it work.

The new build of Windows 10 have a lot of new security settings and some of them can make cause issues with VMware Workstation (or potentially also other host hypervisors). One common issue when you try to power on a VM in Workstation and instead you get this error message: VMware Workstation and Device/Credential Guard are not compatible. VMware Workstation can be run after disabling Device/Credential Guard.

I’m very proud and honored to be invited to the next Storage Field Day in Boston.

The vExpert vSAN program is a specific VMware vExpert (sub)programs focused on the vSAN product. The idea to have specialized groups of vExpert was to bring again (like at the origins) the vExpert program as an “elite” program. After the vExpert vSAN 2016 and 2017 lists, now VMware has just announced the vExpert vSAN 2018 new list. I was honored to part of this list again, and that’s pretty exciting, considering that I’m there from the first list.
