VMworld Sessions with vSAN Customers


Advertise here with BSA

At VMworld, there were various sessions with vSAN Customers, many of which I have met in some shape or form in the past couple of years. Some of these stories contain some great use cases or stories. Considering they are “hidden” in 60-minute sessions I figured I would write about them and share with you […]

This is the last post in this VMworld Sessions series. Although the title lists “CTO3509BU: Embracing the Edge: Automation, Analytics, and Real-Time Business” which is by Chris Wolf and Daniel Beveridge, I would also highly recommend watching Daniel’s other session titled “CTO2161BU Smart Placement of Workloads in Tomorrow’s Distributed Cloud“. Both sessions discuss a similar […]

HCI2476BU – Tech Preview RDMA and next-gen storage tech for vSAN

This session I had high on my list to go and watch live. Unfortunately, I was double booked during the show, hence I had to watch “HCI2476BU – Tech Preview RDMA and next-gen storage tech for vSAN” online as well. This session was by my colleagues Biswa and Srinath (PM/Engineering) and discusses how we can […]

HCI2164BU – HCI Management, current and futures


Advertise here with BSA

This session by Christian Dickmann and Junchi Zhang is usually one of my favorites in the HCI track, mainly because they show a lot of demos and in many cases show you what ends up being part of the product in 6-12 months. The session revolved all around management, or as they called it in the […]

HCI1603BU – Tech Preview of Native vSAN Data Protection


Advertise here with BSA

The second session I watched was HCI1603BU Tech Preview of Native vSAN Data Protection by Michael Ng. I already discussed vSAN Data Protection last year, but considering the vSAN Beta is coming up soon that includes this functionality I felt it was worth covering again. Note that the beta will be a private beta, so […]

All-Flash Stretched vSAN Cluster and VM/Host Rules


Advertise here with BSA

I had a question last week about the need for DRS Rules or also known as VM/Host Rules in an All-Flash Stretched vSAN Infrastructure. In a vSAN Stretched Cluster, there is read locality implemented. The read locality functionality, in this case, ensures that: reads will always come from the local fault domain. This means that […]
