VMware VUM: Still haven’t found what I’m looking for…

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

I wrote an article recently about VMware U2. And I made this god awful pun associated with U2… Update 2 and the rockband U2. Geddit? Sadly, that reference didn’t really make the article on TechTarget. I dunno, perhaps Bono rang them up and said they couldn’t use it. The article was written...

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

This is the final article in a series about the new vSphere4.1 release. To be honest as I begin to the use the software on a daily basis I’m beginning to count a significant number of tiny enhancements here and there, that went totted up together really make difference. So I’m thinking at some...

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

IMPORTANT UPDATE: IF you bought the TomTom iPhone Cradle. You will find it is DOES NOT supply power to the iPhone4. This is because the iPhone is slightly thinner the 3GS version. There is a simple work around, and you can qualify for a fix from TomTom here:

I say AyePhone. Because if your from the North of England, when anyone say iPhone – it always makes think of some Yorkshire Sheep Farmer. Aye… Phone. I don’t normally blog about consumer based stuff because – well, basically I don’t care too much about it to be honest. Occasionally,...

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

Intriguing blogpost title? I’m hoping your wondering – hey, Mike what on earth is a “primative”. What is the fourth one, and why is it hidden. Well, it’s all about how VAAI was meant to have 4 components. And there are. But folks are just being quite quiet about the 4 component. I...

What’s New in vSphere4.1 – ESXi Ready for the DataCenter?

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

Following on my series of blogposts about vSphere4.1 this article is all about the ch-ch-ch-changes to ESXi. For me, personally – these changes are the MOST important ones in vSphere4.1. Without them, I think VMware would have a real fight on its hands to prize the Service Console from the...

What’s New in vSphere 4.1 – Performance Improvements

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

So here’s the back story. A couple of weeks before yesterday’s GA of vSphere4.1 myself and the rest of the bloggers who make up the vCommunity – were privileged to be given 3 closed sessions all about what is new in vSphere4.1. The first rule was the fight club rule, in that we couldn’t...

Something I can’t talk about

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

Losers VMworld; VMworld Fringe; VMworld “Movie” Pitch

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

Well, I’m going out on a limb here, because this idea could TOTALLY crash and burn! But what the hell. If don’t get submission, I will quietly walk away. Climb under stone, and pretend I never had the idea in the first place. That it was someone else’s idea...
