Why Big Disk Drives Require Data Integrity Checking (Stephen Foskett, Pack Rat)

Hard disk drives keep getting bigger, meaning capacity just keeps getting cheaper. But storage capacity is like money: The more you have, the more you use. And this growth in capacity means that data is at risk from a very old nemesis: Unrecoverable Read Errors (URE). You might think RAID is for data protection, but it does nothing of the sort! Let’s get one thing out of the way from t...

SIOControlFlag2 what is it? (Yellow Bricks)

I had a question this week what Misc SIOControlFlag2 was. Some refer to it as SIOControlFlag2 and I’ve also seen Misc.SIOControlFlag2. In the end it is the same thing. It is something that sometimes pops up in the log files, or some may stumble in to the setting in the “advanced settings” on a host level. The question I had was why the value is 0 on some hosts, 2 on ot...

Demo of new HP 3PAR StoreServ Management Console (Around the Storage Block Blog articles)

Yesterday Ivan Iannaccone had a really good post talking about our new 3PAR next-generation management platform, 3PAR StoreServ Management Console or SSMC. His post had a lot of detail and sceenshots that I think gave a great view into SSMC. But if a picture is worth a thousand words then a demo video must be worth a million.    So today I have a demo video of SSMC.  In the video ...

Anatomy of a Desktop Virtualization Project #1: Application Analysis (The Virtualization Practice)

At first glance, desktop virtualization seems fairly simple. Just deliver an operating system image, tune it, set the policies required, persist the user state, and you’re good to go. Right?

Blog Migration in the Works (blog.scottlowe.orgblog.scottlowe.org » )

You might have noticed that blog content has been a bit sparse over the last few weeks. The reason I haven’t generated any new content is because all my spare time is taken up with preparing to migrate this site to a new hosting platform. Sometime over the holiday season, I’ll be migrating this site from a hosted WordPress installation to Jekyll running on GitHub Pages. Given that I ...

The Irony in IT (The Virtualization Practice)

Oh, the irony in IT. Early in my career, the Windows operating system dominated the corporate world, until Linux came along and presented an alternative to Windows dominance.

Best Tips For VMware VSAN Deployments (ESX Virtualization)

Virtualization networking strategies… (Yellow Bricks)

I was asked a question on LinkedIn about the different virtualization networking strategies from a host point of view. The question came from someone who recently had 10GbE infrastructure introduced in to his data center and the way the network originally was architected was with 6 x 1 Gbps carved up in three bundles of 2 x 1Gbps. Three types of traffic use their own pair of NICs: Manage...

Yesterday, I did a post on ESA here - which is an example of tight integration and packaging of vRealize Operations Management and the EMC storage portfolio. Today's Federation Treat cuts right to the core of the federation principle of focus in each part, with each pursuing an "open" model.   Short version:  Through solid VMware/EMC collaboration and the principle of "Choice" as...

Happy Holidays Part 2: Federation Treat “A” (Virtual Geek)

As you might imagine, I get a lot of questions from analysts these days about "this Federation thing - what's the material benefit?"   While people in equity markets thrive off speculation (and this becomes a self-fulfilling thing - speculation begets more speculation).   I always come back to what customers tell me: "I like integration between Pivotal, VMware, EMC....

Peripherals (The Virtualization Practice)

Peripherals are supposed to be redirected in a virtualization environment, but they don’t always subscribe to plug ’n play. Even more important is the question of whether IT organizations should permit all peripherals for all users from a security and business perspective.
