When Should I Upgrade to VMware vSphere 6? (The Lone Sysadmin)

I’ve been asked a few times about when I’m planning to upgrade to VMware vSphere 6. Truth is, I don’t know.

I’ve always thought […] The post When Should I Upgrade to VMware vSphere 6? appea...

What The VCDX Scenarios Are Looking For (Chris Colotti's Blog » VMware)

I presented another VCDX Workshop this week in South Florida, and one thing that we dug into was what the Design and Troubleshooting Scenarios are looking for.  What I mean by that is every VCDX has always said in the workshops that these two sections are “About the Journey, not the destination”.  I personally have stated 100 times that completing a full design, or getting the ans...

All in a flash: a year of 3PAR Thursday blogs tells the evolving flash story (Around the Storage Block Blog articles)

By Beth Joseph, 3PAR StoreServ Product Marketing Manager, HP Storage   A year can seem like a long time—or it can fly by in a flash.

He just said, “Sure wish I didn’t have to d...
