Reading Time: 4 minutes As written in the previous post, the management web interface is build around at the load balancer features. But most terms and concepts are the same of other solutions and at least we have: Virtual Services (VS): a virtual IP or VIP (or a pair of IP and port) for a specific virtual service that will me managed by the load balancer Real Servers (RS): the servers (physical or virtual) that hosts the services Forwarding methods: how packets are delivered to the real servers. VLM support NAT or Direct Server Route (DSR) al L4 and […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes As written in the previous post, there are two vNIC in the VLM appliance, because there are two different scenarios of network topologies (well described in the LoadMaster Installation & Configuration Guide at pages 12-13): one-armed (similar to a bastion host firewall configuration) or two-armed (similar to a firewall dual-homed). Looking at those configurations, and comparing with Linux Virtual Server, seems that the forward methods (Direct Server Return and NAT) are bounded with the network topology. But for VLM there is no correlation and you can use the preferred forward methods (although DRS remain the […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes KEMP Virtual LoadMaster (VLM) is available in three format: one for Microsoft Hyper-V (just a zip with all the required files) and two for VMware (one for vSphere and one for Workstation format). All are quite small (less than 40MB), so really fast to download and deploy. I have tried the the vSphere version that is just a compressed file with a folder including an OFV and a VMDK file. Really simple to deploy as most of the virtual appliances (maybe a single file could be more simple). The Step 1 is get the software […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes The Dell(EMC) World event has been renamed last year in the Dell Technologies World Conference and has become a very very huge event and this year will be probably bigger than ever. Dell Technologies is the “umbrella” that includes all those companies: Dell, the new DellEMC, Pivotal, RSA, SecureWorks, VirtuStream, VMware.

Reading Time: 11 minutes VMware vExpert program recognizes people that have demonstrated significant contributions to the community and a willingness to share their expertise with others. Contributing is not always blogging or Twitter as there are many public speakers, book authors, CloudCred task writing, script writers, VMUG leaders, VMTN community moderators and internal champions among this group. The primary reason for becoming vExpert certainly should not be related to any possible benefits of the program. And once confirmed you have to think more about what you can give rather to what is to be expected. But I’d be a […]

Reading Time: 11 minutes The primary reason for becoming vExpert certainly should not be related to any possible benefits of the program. And once confirmed (for me is the seven year in a row) you have to think more about what you can give rather to what is to be expected. But I’d be a hypocrite to deny that there are also practical advantages in being a vExpert! Officially, VMware, according with the vExpert FAQ, say that the biggest benefit of the award is the public recognition as a VMware vExpert Award winner.

Reading Time: 3 minutes During the first European Tech Field Day Extra (at VMworld EU in Barcelona) we have met again VMTurbo. The presentation was pretty similar to the one at the past Virtualization Field Day 3 in Palo Alto earlier in 2014 (see this post). The core founding team started VMTurbo in 2009 (the initial company was called SMARTS but was soon acquired by EMC), realizing that the rapid growth of virtualization in the datacenter was redefining the management requirements for companies of all sizes. The VMTurbo platform first launched in August 2010 and since that time more […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes VMware vRealize Operations 6.0 is the new name of the vCenter Operations 5.x family and will be part of the new vRealize suite. But will be not only a barely renaming of an existing product, instead it will be a completely new version with lot of important improvements. The VMware vCenter Operations Manager Suite was a powerful collection of products for help in monitoring and management tasks in a virtual (and not only) environment. Actually it was also included in some vSphere 5.5 bundle and there is the foundation edition available for free with each vSphere.
