I’m very proud and honored to be invited again to the next Tech Field Day in Austin (TX). It will be the 16th edition of Tech Field Day (#TFD16), just one year after the 13th, still in Austin (and where I was also invited). I’m very excited for this event, that remains a must for all techie-people: be a delegate is a unique opportunity to meet interesting people, learn more on products and solutions and usually learn directly by the higher (technical) level of each company… All without biased discussion and always with a high technical […]

One month ago, the Mastering VMware vSphere 6.5 book has been published and we already have some interesting feedback. Considering that it’s the first book experience (not only for me but also for the other co-authors), and that neither of us it’s a native English speaker, we are really interested in more feedback (positive or negative) as possible, in order to improve, in the case of a new edition or a new book.

Technology Live! is a one-day event, organized by A3 Communications, where up to four vendors showcase their technologies in action to a group of technical journalists, bloggers and analysts. A combination of presentations and demos allows each company to present its solutions with a much higher level of detail than is usually possible in traditional briefings. A highly interactive day for all participants.

Increase a virtual machine disk size it’s so easy, on almost all hypervisor: just click and increase the space on the virtual disk. But it’s just one part of the game, the second part it does the same inside the virtual machine, and maybe it’s not so easy or fast increase the partition and the filesystem inside the related guest OS. For Windows OSes, starting with 2008 (Windows Server 2008 and Vista) it’s quite easy. For Linux, it could be easy with LVM, but a little tricky without it.

As written in a previous post, some months ago, I’ve started a huge personal project that consumes all my spare free time. This project was a new book on VMware vSphere 6.5, really ambitious considering that will be a “Mastering” book, but the title and part of the content were not negotiable with the editor. Finally, the book Mastering VMware vSphere 6.5 is done and it’s now available on Packt site (and in the future also on Amazon).

For this Monday, Packt is selling each book and each video for just 5 dollars! Over 5000 resources where you can choose. Strange but in Euro it’s more than 5 (it’s 5,24€) but remains anywhere a big deal for a very few weeks! For all VMware books use this search: https://www.packtpub.com/all?search=vmware

This is an article realized for StarWind blog and focused on the design and implementation of stretched cluster. A stretched cluster, sometimes called metro-cluster, is a deployment model in which two or more host servers are part of the same logical cluster but are located in separate geographical locations, usually two sites. In order to be in the same cluster, the shared storage must be reachable in both sites. Stretched cluster, usually, are used and provided high availability (HA) and load balancing features and capabilities and build active-active sites.
