Why Should CIOs Invest in Network…

Data-center virtualization is nearly all-encompassing by now. Most corporations have achieved a compute virtualization rate of over 80%. Only very few workloads remain on physical hardware instead of being handled by a virtual machine, and usually that’s because of very specialized requirements of the applications themselves. Storage is following closely behind.

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to meet with a number of VMware customers in both Singapore and in the UAE. Most of the sessions were enablement and education type sessions, where there was a lot of white-boarding of VSAN (VMware’s hyper-converged infrastructure product) and Virtual Volumes (VVols – Software Defined Storage or SDS for the storage arrays). This wasn’t a sales session; I’m not in sales. The objective of these sessions was simply to educate. I guess when you are immersed in this stuff 24×7, it easy to fall into the trap of believing that everyone is well versed in this technology, and that’s simply not the case.

If you are one of those guys (or girls of course) who likes to stay on top of his (or her) game, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to test the upcoming vSphere Beta? I know I got excited about all the cool new functionality that is introduced in it. I can’t share any details unfortunately it is a private beta and those details can only be shared under NDA… However, the Beta is open for everyone to register. So if you have a home-lab, a lab at work, you want to test stuff nested… Make sure to sign up here: VMware vSphere Beta Interest Capture.
