vSphere Replication has been embedded in the ESXi kernel for quite sometime now. When a virtual machine performs a storage ‘write’ this is mirrored by the vSCSI filter at the ESXi Host level before it is committed to disk. The vSCSI filter sends its mirrored ‘write’ to the vSphere Replication Appliance which is responsible for…
This is a follow-up to my previous post on VVols commenting on The Register’s VVol article. I’ve seen this question come up often so I wanted to provide some detailed information on the minimum, average and maximum amount of VVols a VM can have. This has a direct impact on the scalability of VVols as … Continue reading » The post Just how many Virtual Volumes (VVols) can a VM have? appeared first on Welcome to vSphere-land!.

For many, VCP training and examinations can be a complex, nerve-racking process that often leads to the question, “Where do I start?” If you find yourself already asking this question, you came to the right blog! I will outline my recent experience, which will guide you through your VCP6 in the most efficient and effective way possible.
In vSphere 6.0 Update 1, the vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) has received a significant enhancement to its Virtual Machine Management Interface also known as VAMI for short. As the name suggests, this interface provides basic configuration, monitoring and management capabilities for the Virtual Appliance which can be consumed through either a UI using a web browser or from […]
During Tech Field Day Extra in Berlin last week (at Cisco Live Europe) we had a fantastic and unique opportunity to meet with delegates who are working in various fields. We all know of some general concepts but well, we’re all so much into our specialization area that we do not foresee the fact that other individuals (which are also highly technical) may not fully understand what we talk about.
In case you have missed the VSAN 6.2 announce recently, there is also a PDF which has been released – What’s New with VMware Virtual SAN 6.2. The paper details what’s already being announced about VSAN 6.2. Note that I have also had the details written in my post here – VMware VSAN 6.2 Announced – Nearline dedupe, Erasure Coding, QoS ++ .
VSAN 6.2 has a new quality of service mechanism which we are referring to as “IOPS limit for object”. Through a policy setting, a customer can set an IOPS limit on a per object basis (typically VMDK) which will guarantee Continue reading → The post VSAN 6.2 Part 4 – IOPS limit for object appeared first on CormacHogan.com.
