Recently I was asked about why I would use one product over another and what are the differentiators that would make a company choose 1 product over another or indeed both. You can read lots about the feature sets and how useful each product is here and here but my intention for this post is to give you an idea of the reporting capabilities of each product to help you decide. Both products are licensed per socket and have pricing options dependent on what is required so again I urge you to investigate this if this is a key requirement for your organisation. So read on if you’d like an idea of how reporting compares for both products. » Read more

Its been a long time since my last blog post but the recent GA of vCenter Support Assistant looks like it could be a winner for most companies looking to ensure their crown jewels are in good hands. » Read more
Its been a while since my last post and I’ve been keeping tabs on all the IT Tech news, blogs, and the local VMUGs that have past including the UK National Conference which was very well attended and had some excellent presentations by Jason Langone, Joe Baguely and Brian Gammage to name a few. The recent Danish VMUG was very good by all accounts and some very good presentations including an interesting one from LEGO on moving from 1 datacenter to another. But enough of news – let’s focus on the headline.
So what will 2014 be the year for ? » Read more
So everything is all Flash and Software defined, so what now ??
I had the pleasure of attending the IBM Edge event that mirrors the Las Vegas event but is held in London and was very interesting to say the least. » Read more
Another fine keynote presentation from Carl Eschenbach, Kit Colbert and Joe Baguely went into more of a deep dive of the the Pat Gelsinger keynote from the previous day about the SDN. » Read more
Another busy day at the Vmworld conference and we were to party to an interesting keynote with some announcements in line with what we expect from Barcelona. » Read more
Monday saw the first day of the Vmworld conference featuring Hands on Labs, TAM day and Partner Day and a chance for people to come and register ahead of the kick off on Tuesday.
The HOLs were particularly well designed and much improved on last years version and I can honestly say that I found them to be very engaging. Having been through the Mirage, vCHS and the vSAN labs I found that the screens were fluid and it was good to play with products to gain some familiarity with areas I hadn’t seen before.
As I’m neither a partner or qualify for TAM I had to miss out on the events and speeches that I’ve heard were very well accepted by the crowds.
It was good to meet up with VMware staff and fellow bloggers alike in the bloggers lounge and talking with some recognisable names in the vCommunity.
So onto the next day and some exciting keynotes with a few surprises I hope. Looking forward to walking a lot (not) and learning/networking some more for the next few days. More thoughts and experiences to follow so stay tuned.
I’m not going to take any credit for this but one of my fellow virtualisation enthusiasts – Eric Sloof – recently posted an article on the new certifications from Vmware designed for IT professionals to show a degree of knowledge and competencies in 3 areas. » Read more
