This is the year of the security threats originated by hardware level bugs. The year has began with the Spectre and Metldown bug with several months of possible solutions, new BIOS, new patches… and new variants of those bugs (like Spectre V4 and V5).

And more will came out… all the software used at the microprocessor level and all the optimizations will probably be a good vector for new attack patterns.

Some weeks ago, somebody as ask me how was going the Mastering VMware vSphere 6.5 book, so I’ve collect some stats from the published and from Amazon. This book was the first authoring experience not only for me, but also for the other authors (Paolo Valsecchi, from the blog http://nolabnoparty.com/, and Karel Novak, a VCI and VMUG leader from CZ, both also Veeam Vanguard).

Tintri has laid off 80 per cent of its staff, including its top sales bod, leaving just 40 to 50 staff behind, however it still expects to run out of cash on June 30. And there are a lot of rumors with impending news of bankruptcy. That’s not good at, considering the history of the company and the quality of their products.
