vCenter Heartbeat – To be vCSHB or vCHB that is the question…

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

Well, there’s been a little bit of confusion about what to call this thing. vCenter Hearbeat Service? vCenter Server Heartbeat? vCenter Heartbeat – and of course, from then comes an alphabet soup of acronymns – but as I guess so long as the letter v is lower-case I should be just fine. Right? Anyway, I will be soon be jetting of vMwOrLd soon :p

I’ve written a ton load of stuff about vCHB – about 5K of words – which is way over my allocation with TechTarget, but fortunately my long suffering editor has cut me some slack. So what do we have. Well, a 4-part article with Part1/2 appearing in this months edition of SearchVirtualDataCentre, and the next two parts in September when I get back from VmWoRlD. Part1/2 concern the setup and post-configuration of vCHB, and significance to VMware customers in the round. Parts 3/4 cover my experiences of the product caused by me doing various tests (i.e braking stuff) to see how vCHB copes with an outage.

Here’s Part1 and here’s Part2
