Running Log Insight on Ravello – Michael Ryom

Continuing in the same track as the last few blog posts – It now time to get Log Insight up and running in the cloud. Unlike the last post on how to get vRops up and running on Ravello, where the main problem was getting vRops uploaded and setting a static ip. Log Insight threw a hissy fit and didn’t install at all. So starting from scratch, this is Running Log Insight on Ravello, the how to guide.

If we want to know whether a child is sick, we measure fever. Sure, it’s not a perfect method, but a stuffy nose and the temperature are sufficient for a quick diagnosis. Usually we will not run blood analysis, computer tomography or microbiological tests. Although some doctors and mums may prefer to.

When you run a VMware based SDDC solution (in a lab or at a customer site). Which includes VMware NSX for network virtualization, it will probably also include VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) for monitoring and capacity planning. On top of that there is a pretty good change that VMware LogInsight is also included for log management and analytics.

Goodbye vSphere Client for Windows (C#) – Hello…

Goodbye vSphere Client for Windows (C#) – Hello HTML5

Goodbye vSphere Client for Windows (C#) – Hello…

Today we have two important announcements. First, the C# client (AKA Desktop Client/thick client/vSphere Client for Windows) will not be available for the next version of vSphere. Current versions of vSphere (6.0, 5.5) will not be affected, as those will follow the standard support period. You’ve heard this from us in the past, but we’ve been waiting for a sufficient replacement before finally moving forward. Second, we want to talk about the recent vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling, user adoption, and VMware’s focus on bringing a great user experience. Like the Embedded Host Client Fling (which made it into vSphere in 6.0U2), we plan on bringing this product into a supported release soon.
