Reading Time: 2 minutes VMware® vCenter Converter Standalone provides an easy-to-use solution that automates the process of creating VMware virtual machines from physical machines (running Windows and Linux) and from other virtual machine formats. Actually the most recent version remain the Converter 6.6 updated on Feb, 22 2024. Considering that one of my most requested article was VMware Converter guest OS support, I decide to make an updated version.

Reading Time: 2 minutes Like every hardware and software components, before apply a VMware vSphere upgrade or update you have to check all compatibility aspects. One is related to the backup software that can be critical because you may loose the capability to perform backup and/or restore. For Veeam Backup & Replication there is a specific Veeam KB (KB 2443) that provides information about compatibility between VMware vSphere and Veeam Backup & Replication.

Reading Time: 4 minutes The Intel® Xeon® CPU Max Series is designed to maximize bandwidth with the new high-bandwidth memory (HBM). This new processor is architected to unlock performance and speed discoveries in data-intensive workloads, such as modeling, artificial intelligence, deep learning, high performance computing (HPC) and data analytics.

Reading Time: 3 minutes GPU support in VMware vSphere has been for a while starting with the VDI scenario. But can GPUs be used in vSphere for applications other than VDI? Using GPU not for graphics but for computing… because for some type of operation, GPU can be better than CPU. For example, machine learning models involve very large matrix multiplications and GPUs are designed to compute these operations much faster than CPUs. VMware vSphere allows your end users to consume GPUs in VMs in the same way they do in any GPU-enabled public cloud instance or on bare […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes A Data Processing Unit (DPU) is a programmable computer processor that tightly integrates a general-purpose CPU with network interface hardware. In VMware, starting with vSphere 8.0, DPU can be used to offload workloads from an x86 host to a DPU, as well as providing an additional layer of security by having an air-gapped environment running some of the processes. This is the result of Project Monterey.
