First of all I want to thank Infinio for Sponsoring this blog. It’s awesome to see such an awesome company joining the vdicloud.nl website. Thanks!
Great news from my friends from Infinio. Today they announced the GA of Infinio Accelerator v1.2 with support for VMware vSphere 5.5
Last week my friends from Nutanix opened their brand new EMEA Headquarters in Hoofddorp (Amsterdam). It’s awesome to see such a company like Nutanix opening their HQ in the Netherlands. If you don’t know what Nutanix does, you’ve probably been living under a rock, and the first thing you need to know is that the world is round…. Just to spread a little light on the Nutanix way of life.
There’s always a lot of gossip around VMware Partner EXchange (PEX), and it’s not any different during this years edition. It all started about 2 weeks ago when Joe Kovar at CRN posted: VMware Limits Some Storage Vendors Presence At VMware PEX. In the post Joe told us that VMware asked Nutanix and Veeam were asked to stay away from PEX, which VMware hosts this week in San Francisco. My good friend Hans de Leenheer did another post on this: VMware uses its right to bear arms! where the replies are of most interest to me… I’m not choosing sites, but Nutanix and Veeam not being present on this Partner Event is very strange, but as always there are most likely two sites of the story…
Today is the start of Wireless Field Day 6 which in turn means a new year of Tech Field Day awesomeness, and I wanted to share my experience with the Tech Field Day family, and invite you to join. Last year I wrote an article called:” You can be a SFD4 delegate”. But there’s more. As some of you don’t exactly would like to be a Storage Field Day delegate (I could never understand why ;-P), I would like to point out you can be a tech field day delegate, and Stephen, Tom and Claire are always on the look for new Tech Field Day delegates. Tech Field Day started in 2009 with TFD1 and in a five year time frame in grew to multiple Field Days. Let’s have a look:
Last week I wrote the first part for the infinio setup. I promised I would write a part two about how to create an I/O workload to put your setup Infinio environment to the test. After setting up a couple of workloads on different OS’es my Italian friend Luca Dell’Orca wrote a post on VirtualToTheCore about what to use to create I/O workloads. After reading the post “My new I/O Test Virtual Machine” I decided to change my environment to create a more trustworthy workload.
The last couple of days I’ve spend most of my time on re-installing Infinio Accelerator 1.0. Today Infinio announced that it closed $12 million in it’s round B series, which is no surprise for me (for more information click on this link). As I was going through the preparation in my homelab this weekend I made a couple of screenshots and thought it would be a good idea to show just how easy it is to setup Infinio Accelerator.
