Reading Time: 1 minute The last week I’ve realized an article for the StarWind blog and focused on the different types of storage controllers in VMware vSphere (see Storage Controllers in VMware vSphere). To access block-based devices (like virtual disks, CD/DVD-ROM), but also generic SCSI devices, a virtual machine uses storage controllers, which at least one is added by default when you create the virtual machine and the type of it depends by the type of guest OS that you have chosen. You can make several change changes while you are in the creation wizard. The article will analyze […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes The last week I’ve realized an article for the StarWind blog and focused on the how is possible change the different hardware settings on a VM running on VMware vSphere (see Changing the hardware resources on a running VM). Each Virtual Machine is a collection of resources provided by the infrastructure layer, usually organized in a pool of resources and assigned dynamically (or in some case statically) to each VM.

Reading Time: 2 minutes Interesting move by F5 Networks and NGINX that have announced a definitive agreement under which F5 will acquire all issued and outstanding shares of privately held NGINX for a total enterprise value of approximately $670 million. Seems strange, becase a company like F5 need a company like NGINX? NGINX is not only a server web, but there are a lot of products in the commercial version. For example NGINX Plus is a software load balancer, web server, and content cache built on top of open source NGINX. NGINX Plus has exclusive enterprise‑grade features beyond what’s available […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes RVTools is a Windows .NET application, easy to be install which uses the VI API to collect and display informations about your vSphere virtual environments. Probably it’s one of the most used application to collect information from a vSphere environment with more than 1 million copies downloaded! RVTools supports all version of vSphere starting from version 3.5 (when still was called Virtual Infrastructure) through the latest vSphere 6.7… with or without vCenter Server! After one year from the last version (RVTools version 3.10), now it’s available the new Version 3.11 (March, 2019). It adds a […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes On Sunday 3rd March, Linus Torvalds has announced the release of Linux Kernel 5.0, a new branch of the foundation of the GNU/Linux operating system. Does this new branch mean something special, or it’s just a different way to give a name to the Linux kernel (instead of using 4.22). Historically, the Linux kernel naming was used to define different braches with a different scope: “feature and develop” branch or “stable” branch. But in the last decade, this differentiation was no more used and Torvalds himself is going to provide a clarification: I’d like to […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes VMware NSX-T Data Center is the next generation product that provides a scalable network virtualization and micro-segmentation platform for multi-hypervisor environments, container deployments, and native workloads. Under this umbrella there are two main products: NSX-v and NSX-T. Also if NSX-T has not yet become features parity with NSX-v, it’s becoming clear that, in the future, it will replace the NSX-v product and become the only NSX Data Center line. NSX-T provides a variety of new features to provide new functionality for virtualized networking and security for private, public, and hybrid clouds. Highlights include a new […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes This year the vExpert 2019 announce has taken much time compared with the vExpert 2018 announce, because of some changes in the votation process. But finally has arrived, with some changes from the past years (not only for the delay, but also with the list that has been reduced). And also this time I’ve been confirmed as a vExpert. Note that “vExpert” is not a technical certification or even a general measure of VMware expertise, it’s much like an award. Contributing is not always blogging or Twitter as there are many public speakers, book authors, CloudCred […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes Ten years ago, on Feb. 26, Veeam Backup & Replication 1.0 was introduced at VMworld Europe 2008. Then it was made generally available on March 3, 2008. Veeam Backup & Replication v1 was designed with functionalities that are still the main pillars of Veeam Backup & Replication, such as instant file-level recovery, built-in deduplication, synthetic full backups and replication multiple restore points. Originated from the FastSCP free product, as an efficient way to save VM’s related files, Veeam Backup & Replication has represented the first commercial product of Veeam, and probably the start of a new generation of backup, data protection and […]
