The Great vSwitch Debate by Ken Cline

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

Ken Cline is the grand-master-flash-melly-mel of VMware and was already an experienced VMware person before I even opened an account on the VMware Forums. Anyway, Ken is already outputting quality content on his blog. I mean real quality, with diagrams – the full monty. At this rate he will be...

VMware Release Update 4

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

VMware released Update 4 for ESX 3.5 after a week or so ago releasing U4 for vCenter 2.5. Normally, I would be quick to blog about these releases, and even try them out as upgrades. But I haven’t done an upgrade of VMware since ESX 3.5 and VC 2.5 were released many moons ago. To be honest I...

As you probably (don’t) know there’s been a rumour going around that April 24th (or is that the 21st – there seems to be some confusion…!!!) will be big day for VMware.  0 Comments     RSS Feed     Email a friend

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

OK, yet another shameless plug for Chad and his blog. EMC have released a new version of the EMC Celerra VSA… If you don’t know the physical Celerra puts a iSCSI/NFS head on top of EMC Clarrion. You can use this VSA (Virtual SAN Appliance) to an connect anything to it – including ESX – for...

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

I’ve been working all this week in finally RTFM-ing all the VMware PDF’s – looking for errors or simply things I’ve missed in my book. Again on Chad’s blog there’s some interesting EMC integration which isn’t mentioned in my book or those PDFs (no disrespect VMware but the PDFs are...

Debunking VMFS myths…

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

Chad Sakac of virtualgeek.com which debunks some myths about VMFS and performance – and also has sneaky peak via a screen grab of the vSphere Client. I’d go along with Chad’s comments, in the main. But I still feel uncomfortable about extents – just call me the glass half-full guy – but I...

What’s my build…?

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

One of the slightly annoying aspects of VMware’s move over to the U1, U2, U3 and now U4 values for new versions of ESX and vCenter – is how these “Update” numbers don’t appear on the ESX console (either ESX “Classic” or ESXi). You can always find out the build numbers – and then map...
