This year I will be using a new lab I have built to test and evaluate software and blog about my findings. My intentions are to focus on the products below:
- Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 Update 3 (including agents)
- Zerto Virtual Replication 6.0
- VMware NSX 6.4
- Dell EMC Unity Virtual Storage Appliance
- EMC Recover Point for VMs 5.1
- vSAN 6.6.1
in 2018 it is my opinion that one of the most important things an IT leader or influencer can do is to have a vision, to develop a strategy and to fully document it.
Barry Coombs and Anthony Charman of ComputerWorld recorded a short webinar for those that couldn't join us in Bristol for the live. In this webinar, Barry and Anthony summarise the content from the day, in particular; VMware vSphere, vSAN and NSX, data protection, Security and Workspace transformation including VMware Workspace ONE.
In this short video, ComputerWorld specialists discuss how 4 technologies can help your business build a better security posture through, Anti-virus, Auditing, Patch Management and User Education.
Whilst many of our customers have a good high-level understanding of vSAN this series of blog posts will cover some of the concepts in further detail and hopefully help answer some of the typical questions I get asked.
The guys at IGEL were nice enough to send me an IGEL UD Pocket recently for me to evaluate, the UD pocket is a bootable USB thin client that can be used to turn any X86 hardware into a thin client. I have been using the UD Pocket for the last month and have recorded a video with my thoughts and experiences of the device.
