vSphere [-R]evolution – 6.7 Update 2 – Podcast #012

by | May 7, 2019 | Podcast | 6 comments

????  You say you want a revolution… You tell me that it’s evolution…  ????

Welcome to your no-cost scheduled counseling session with your favorite IVOXY Consultants! It’s time for another edition of Data Center Therapy with your professionally licensed geeks – Matt Yette & Matt Cozzolino:

  • Network virtualization and the software-defined datacenter.
  • Cozz’s learnings from VMware EMPOWER in Hotlanta, Georgia.
  • The changes in vSphere 6.7 Update 2 (and it’s more evolutionary versus revolutionary developments).
  • vRealize Log Insight (and it’s relative relation to the other big log analytics package in that space).
  • Level 1 Terminal Fault (L1TF) mitigations (those Spectre / Meltdown attacks) and how your workloads and multi-tenancy can be impacted by them.
  • New configuration maximums for VMs within vSphere.
  • … and a rather humorous “I’ve Never Seen that Before!” to wrap things up.
