My vlinks choice – 2-2011
Well, it’s time for the second issue of my vlink choice :)
This week there has been a lot of posts: I think that holidays are really over ;)
My attention has been caught by a lot of blog post but there is one that own the first place and a mention on his own.
So, take Nicholas Weaver (aka @lynxbat), Kinect and a vSphere cluster and…this is the result: http://nickapedia.com/2011/01/15/fistful-of-cloud-interactive-cloud-demo/ . One word: awesome!
Ok, and now the usual list of interesting post :)
- VMware Labs – IOBlazer – IOBlazer is a new fling from VMware Lab. It’s a multi-platform storage stack micro-benchmark tool capable of generating highly customizable workload. I think I will give it a try.
- Running your own EMC Celerra ‘Uber’ Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) in your vSphere Lab – this is the first part of the Celerra VSA Blog post series by Simon Seagreave (@kiwi_si) that explain how to install, configure and manage the EMC Celerra VSA in a vSphere lab. As I want to dismiss my openfiler box and try the Celerra for my lab, these posts will be handy.
- HP resources for VMware – a useful page full of links about using VMware on HP hardware: from the links to ESX and ESXi HP customized images to vSphere and Lefthand white paper. An invaluable collection of links!
- VMware vSphere Home Lab – “The Green Machines” – an excellent post by Kendrick Coleman (@KendrickColeman) about building a full home labs with attention to “green” details.
- Beating a dead horse – using CPU affinity – interesting post about CPU affinity by Frank Denneman (@frankdenneman) explaining everything you must know about this topic :)
- How cool is TPS? – how TPS impact on Zero Pages and in a boot storm? Find it in this post by Duncan Epping (@DuncanYB)
Ok, that’s all for this week.
