I had a fairly major revelation during VMworld. Its not something that I had stopped to think about and I guess the week of sessions and discussions helped me assemble several random thoughts together. First, I’ve always relegated virutalization to a status where it is certainly a valuable technology and integral part of HTC’s […]
The much hyped T-Mobile G1 handset will hit the market next month, but its in my eyes, it has a major obstacle to overcome – the overwhelming lack of a 3G network to operate on. Many site AT&T’s 3G coverage (or lack) as a weakness with the iPhone 3G models, but T-Mobile’s 3G network coverage […]
File this under “its about time.” AppleInsider is reporting from “reliable” sources that redesigned MacBooks and MacBook Pros will be surfacing middle of October. I’m ready to upgrade my trusty Powerbook for a nice shiny MacBook Pro. I have been holding out for a redesign. The design has largely stayed the same through the Intel […]
One topic that I have not been able to blog about from VMworld was the VMware View announcements. I didn’t get a lot of detail, but the introduction during the keynotes did peak my interest quite a bit. My company is currently evaluating its options for doing virtualized desktops. We feel like there are some […]
Saw a lot of media coverage about T-Mobile’s introduction of the G1 handset. I’ve watched several demos and I’m not really sure what I think of the handset yet. Its certainly not got the wow factor that I had after seeing the introduction of the iPhone. Maybe the missing piece was the Steve’s reality distortion […]
First rule I learned at VMworld. It’s so easy to miss a lot of good sessions. Not all of my planned sessions were as stellar as some… Most were fantastic – and those are the one’s I’ve blogged about. Here is the list (with links to other folk’s blogs for the good notes) that I […]
One of the most compelling introductions I found during VMworld 2008 was the VMware AppSpeed product/plugin. AppSpeed is the market delivery of the Beehive aquisition that VMware made last year. During the Wednesday morning keynote by Dr. Stephen Herrod, CTO, all attendees were treated to a live demonstration of the AppSpeed product along with the […]
So, one particularly interesting session I attended was TA2275, which basically involved the speaker, a crystal ball and the future of Virtual Networking in ESX. The content was set into two parts – what we can expect in the immediate future and then some speculation about where things are probably going for the future.
One of the biggest sticking points with ESX, in my opinion, has been the VMotion compatibility and processor classes. This point has produced some rather interesting support documents both from VMware and hardware vendors. VMware has been working to alleviate this problem and demo’d the solution during VMorld again. The solution is called “Enhanced VMotion.” […]
FT is a new feature which VMware introduced to the world during VMworld 2008. The feature is a continuous availability solution for use with some virtual machines. The following notes were compiled from session BC2621 at VMworld which introduced the forthcoming FT feature from VMware’s Application vServices. The feature should be available sometime in 2009. […]
