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. […]
I’m back now from VMworld in Las Vegas and just wanted to let you know that the lack of posts was a reflection of the poor Internet quality in the conference location. I don’t think the Ventitian had any idea of what to expect with a geek conference. The Internet only improved on Thursday after […]
Chalk it up to things I don’t understand, but Engadget reports the Best Buy is aquiring Napster for $121 million. Read for yourself… I definitely don’t understand why Best Buy would want to get into this business. Partner with Rhapsody, yeah maybe, but buy Napster – what are you thinking?
Just got out of the Partner’s session for VMware’s Roadmap for 2009 – the Next Generation Datacenter. The big announcement is that VMware plans to leverage its existing technologies into a new datacenter OS – VDC-OS. The majority of this is just product re-branding and giving a name to the overall strategy they have been […]
Its still early here in my hotel room at the Palazzo hotel in Las Vegas. I’m up early because I haven’t adjusted to Pacific time. I’m just going through my agenda for the day. Mostly today is a partner and technology showcase day, so not many sessions to attend, but a good time to go […]
