I just want to share the video of the keynote that VMware CTO Steve Herrod gave at Interop 2012 in Las Vegas. (Video removed)
Today, VMware has released vSphere 4.1 Update 2. You can find the release notes here:
In this post, I would like to share some recently published material around VMware vCenter Orchestrator (vCO).
First of all, vCO has been released as virtual appliance that can be downloaded from VMware.com. You can find an overview in the vCO Team Blog post at VMware released the vCenter Orchestrator Virtual Appliance.
Furthermore, three videos on developing vCO Workflows have been published on the VMwareTV Youtube Channel.
I just watched the great video of a presentation on “Time Management” by Randy Pausch again. He held this at the University of Virginia in November 2007 in front of 850 people. Randy was a professor of computer sciences and inspiring person. He died of cancer in July 2008 at the age of only 47. The message of his talk is basically: time is valuable – make the most of it.
Further information on Randy and his great work can be found on Wikipedia.
I just came across a freshly released article on storage path failover behaviour in ESX 4.x. It has been published as a VMware Knowledgebase article. All messages described in this article are shown in /var/log/vmkernel when ESX is performing a failover in case one path goes offline.
