HA Futures: VMCP for Networking – Part 3 of 4 – (Please comment!)


Advertise here with BSA

VMCP, or VM Component Protection, has been around for a while. Many of you are probably using this to mitigate storage issues. However, what if the VM network fails? Well, that is a problem right now… if the VM network fails then there’s no response from HA. This by many customers is considered to be […]

HA Futures: Admission Control – Part 2 of 4 – (Please comment, feedback needed!)


Advertise here with BSA

Admission Control is always a difficult topic when I talk to customers. It seems that many people still don’t fully grasp the concept, or simply misunderstand how it works. To be honest, I can’t blame them. It doesn’t always make sense when you think things through. Most recently for Admission Control we introduced a mechanism […]

HA Futures: Orchestrated Restart and Restart Priority – Part 1 of 4 – (Please comment!)

Last week I visited Palo Alto. I had a long conversation with my friends from the vSphere HA team. I have done a series of articles in the past asking for feedback/comments on future features/functions of HA that the team is looking to implement. One of the first features I would like to discuss is […]

HA Admission control: How can I check how much reserved resources are used?


Advertise here with BSA

I had this question twice in the past three months, so somehow this is something which isn’t clear to everyone. With HA Admission Control you set aside capacity for fail-over scenarios, this is capacity which is reserved. But of course VMs also use reservations, how can you see what the total combined used reserved capacity […]

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 […]

CTO3509BU: Embracing the Edge: Automation, Analytics, and Real-Time Business


Advertise here with BSA

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 […]

CTO2860BU & VIN2183BU: It is all about Persistent Memory


Advertise here with BSA

I was going through the list of sessions when I spotted a session Persistent Memory by Rich Brunner and Rajesh V. Quickly after that I noticed that there also was a PMEM session by the perf team available. Both CTO2860BU and VIN2183BU I would highly recommend watching. I would recommend starting with CTO2860BU though, is it gives […]

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 […]
