    VMC – vSAN ESA

    vSAN Express Storage Architecture (ESA) was announced at VMware Explore last year (2022) and while it’s been available for our on-premise customers for nearly a year it hasn’t been available in VMC until now….

    A little while ago I decided to play with vGPU in my homelab. This was something I had dabbled with in the past but never really had the time or need to get working properly. The first thing that I needed was a GPU. I did have a Dell T20 with an iGPU built into…

    Forcing an Upgrade to vSphere 8

    I run a reasonably extensive homelab that is of course built around the VMware ecosystem.

    As part of my day job at VMware, I look after the VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC) and VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery (VCDR) products in VMware’s Hybrid Cloud portfolio. This is a page of handy links (effectively a dump of my bookmarks) of the public-facing information and tools. Cloud Services Status Page Resources page VMware…
