Reading Time: 1 minute Universal Serial Bus (USB) is an industry-standard that establishes specifications for cables and connectors and protocols for connection, communication, also and power supply between computers, peripheral devices and other computers. How USB is supported in VMware vSphere?

Reading Time: 3 minutes During VMworld US 2019 there was also space for some “minor” products like Workstation and Fusion. “Minor”, but still important in the future of VMware… and really important in the past (first VMware’s product was VMware Workstation). Also it’s good sign see that those products are still vital, considering that three year ago there were some rumors and doubts about the future of Workstation and Fusion products, due to the laying off some employees from the related teams.

Reading Time: 2 minutes During VMworld US 2019, VMware has announced the future release of VMware NSX-T Data Center 2.5. Unfortunately, has happened in past, this is just a product announce, without provide the code of it and the date of General Availability (GA) release date (but I guess will be on VMworld EU 2019). I usually prefer talk about what exist now and see the release notes.

Reading Time: 3 minutes During the day 1 of VMworld US 2019 there was a big announce about a new VMware vSphere impementation, called Project Pacific. Project Pacific will be the biggest evolution of VMware vSphere in the last decade and a huge milestone.

Reading Time: 2 minutes Changed Block Tracking (CBT) is a VMware feature introduced in vSphere 4.0 in order to implement native incremental backup at source level. VMware VDAP uses this technology and so all backup and recovery software designed for VMware use it for speed the backup. This mean that all the backup products that are using VDAP, will rely on VMware API and features, … and bugs.

Reading Time: 3 minutes Runecast is a company that provides actionable predictive analytics for VMware vSphere environments. Runecast Analyzer is a solution that provides software-defined expertise to mitigate service outages, increase security and compliance and reduce time in troubleshooting. This solution can discover hidden issues in your vSphere environment by using the current VMware Knowledge Base articles, that is probably the most trusted, complete and up-to-date public source of known issues and best practices related to VMware products, but it’s also typically used reactively, once the problem already persists.

Reading Time: 5 minutes VMware vSAN 6.7U3 it’s out and maybe you would like to upgrade your environment. But note that there are some possible performance issue with vSphere 6.7U3 on Dell servers. In my opinion, one reason to upgrade is to finally have the automatical proactive rebalancing feature. You can automate all rebalancing activities with cluster-wide configuration and threshold settings. Prior to this release, proactive rebalancing was manually initiated after being alerted by vSAN health checks.

Reading Time: 4 minutes Last week, VMware has announced the future release of VMware vSphere 6.7 Update 3, that means, of course, also the new vSAN 6.7 Update 3 (vSAN is totally integrated in vSphere code). Unfortunately, has happened in past, this is just a product announce, without provide the code of it and the date of General Availability (GA) release date (but I guess will be on VMworld US 2019). I usually prefer talk about what exist now and see the release notes. The products are now GA and, most important the hardware compatibility and the software interoperability matrix have […]

Reading Time: 1 minute This is an article that I wrote as a contribuitor for the Aruba blog. Read the full article Stacking Network Switches: Why and Why Not. In networking, the term “stack” (or stackable) refers to a group of physical switches that have been cabled and grouped in one single logical switch. Over the years, stacking features have evolved from a premium (and costly feature) to a core capability of almost all enterprise-grade switches (and also in several SMB models).

Reading Time: 2 minutes VMware PowerCLI is a Windows PowerShell set of modules designed to simplify, automate, the managing of VMware vSphere environments. If you currently use PowerCLI to automate basic tasks with pre-defined scripts, you’ll already know how powerful automation can be.
