NSX syslog caveat

NSX syslog caveat (via Virtual-Stones)

NSX syslog caveat

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.

Understanding PowerShell Terminology

Understanding #PowerShell Terminology

Understanding PowerShell Terminology

When you are first learning PowerShell, there are often a number of terms and words that everyone assumes you know. Well let’s not make that assumption. Instead, let me at offer at least a quick definition for much of the PowerShell terminology you will encounter. You should know how to use the help system to get additional information on these terms, but sometimes you need a little background to either know where to start looking or to put things in perspective. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but rather items based on my experience presenting PowerShell at conferences and in private training classes.

Transperent Page sharing in vSphere 6.0

Transperent Page sharing in #vSphere 6.0 – Virtual Maestro

Transperent Page sharing in vSphere 6.0

On ESXi host, you may have several virtual machines that are running with same guest operating system, have the same applications, or contain the same user data. Due to this, there is possibility that memory pages created by virtual machines are similar in terms of content. So instead of creating similar multiple pages in host memory for each virtual machine, TPS is used to perform memory page sharing.

VCAP5 Exam Retirements Suspended – Registration…

#VCAP5 Exam Retirements Suspended – Registration Remains Open

VCAP5 Exam Retirements Suspended – Registration…

Since we announced the retirement of the remaining VCAP5 exams in late March, we have heard from quite a number of you who have requested additional time to prepare for and take those exams. Additionally, we are still working on the development and refinement of the VCAP6 exams (which will replace VCAP5), so these new exams have not yet been released in production.
