VMware Q&A, Newcastle Sept16

Recommend http://www.virtuallyghetto.com/
VMware Flings – https://labs.vmware.com/flings
* VDI Prepare tool
* Migrate Windows vCentre to Appliance
(Pay less license fees & only single item to patch)
 
Host Client (HTML5)
ESXi 6 hosts now have a minimal ‘web client’ to control the host. * TIP very good for hardware configuration screen shots
 
Platform Service Control
https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2113115
 
Recommend separate PSC using ‘external PSC’ because it is possible to like multiple ePSC together. vCS with PSC can’t be linked
 
How to get multiple VSC
Linked mode or heartbeat
FT talked about – 1 CPU limit prevents VCS. New version supports 4 vCPU but the network needs to be able to handle the very high load of 4 cpu in lock step. (Understand the failure domains)
 
Resource pools out of favour because a 4 Gb reservation is still in place even if the VM is off! – Recommended that ‘shares’ are used
 
Virtualise legacy app on DOS using DOSBox
 
Question from room
vSAN upgrade – OEM firmware not flashable via Intel tool. Beware the que depth issues.
Talk about how vSAN writes data to disk and protects it. Multiple copies.
 
Erasure coding
 
DSC – Question
Jonathan Noble
DSC Resource kit – Updated monthly
https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/powershell/2016/04/04/dsc-resource-kit-update/
 
Question about DSC compliance server

Learning Docker
********************
http://blog.nigelpoulton.com/want-to-learn-docker-look-no-further/
 
Question about Templates vs Blueprints
T. are fixed and dependant on the platform
B. are recipes on how to get were you want to be
 
Before building via Blueprint a end of life date has to be declared. Also it has recommended amount of CPU, Mem, Storage, etc. Small changed allowed but large changes require sign off…
 
Recommendation from floor, see terraform & Cloud Foundary
https://www.terraform.io/
https://www.cloudfoundry.org/
 
** When looking at docker, don’t use an ‘infrastructure mind.’

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks|
