I’ve been busy the last couple of weeks producing content for VMware SMB. We’ve got series of articles planned, as well some podcasts too. The first one of these was a QA session I did, which outlined how I got into IT and stuff like that.
Given my interest in all things available and recoverable I also wrote about “Virtualized Availability” with a nod to specifically to vDR and SRM.
Now, I know what you going to say. Availability & DR are two entirely different beasts. And I have fought a mainly losing battle to keep these two areas distinct from each other. Customers have always conflated one (availability) with the other (DR). Right now, I see clear blue water between the two challenges. But as time goes on I think we are going to increasingly talk less of DR, and more about “Site Availability” especially as some of use get out hands on stretched-technologies that allow for VMware HA to work across two sites… For the moment I think we have delicate line to tread. The line between talking about whats possible NOW, and will be probable in the FUTURE.
Anyway, stayed tuned for a series of 20min podcasts with folks in the VMware SMB Community with companion “thought” pieces around them. A kind of SMBwag if you like. ;-)
