There has been a lot of industry noise around Docker and VMware project Photon so these have been on the agenda to explore as well. I generally perform my little research projects running nested ESXi on VMware Fusion on my laptop, but VMware are offering £300 of free service credits for trialing vCloud Air OnDemand. Here is my how to guide of the steps I used.

vRealize Log Insight is not a product I have had much to do with up to now, but that changed a few days ago when
I was asked to perform an evaluation of how Log Insight might help with the management and administration of VMware
Integrated OpenStack environment.

To see physical NIC connectivity in vSphere is nice and easy as its displayed in
vCenter console. I found however checking the link state of fibre channel HBAs

Working in a technical team distributed across multiple time zones makes it difficult to collaborate
and keep everyone on the same page. I’ve used various communications tools to try and help with this
and today the team I am working with started to look at Slack. Slack seems ideal for our needs as it
provides easily searchable discussion forums and has apps available for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android,
it has a free usage model with limitations which won’t effect our working and if we grow we can extend
to a paid license.
