VMworld 2014 – Thursday, August 28, 2014

Last day of VMworld 2014 </tear>.  It’s the end of a great week.  The Keynote highlighted issues around technology and our interactions with it.  I got a chance to do another lab and attend some great storage sessions as well.

After hearing so much about EVO:RAIL, I had to try the lab.  Although, there wasn’t much to the workflow, that was the point!  It was very easy to specify my hostname prefixes as well as enumeration options (host01, host02, host03 vs host-a, host-b, host-c, etc.).  I look forward to learning about the EVO product family as I’m sure it will spark some competition in the hypervconverged space.

Before leaving Moscone for the day, I attended a talk by Rawlinson Rivera about VSAN technology. VSAN has the potential to help system administrators scale out their environments quickly. There is a bit of savings on OpEx as there are less devices to configure and a single UI for managing your storage and compute resources.

How can I keep up with all the VMworld happenings if I’m not at the show?

The good folks at VMware, vBrownBag, and VMTrooper.com have got you covered:
