    Advanced Deploy VMware vSphere 7.x 3V0-22.21N

    Yesterday I sat and passed the above exam. It had been on my todo list for a good number of years. With the current pause in the Broadcom VMware takeover deal. I had some downtime and decided to use one of the three exam vouchers VMware give me each year. This upgrades me to a…

    VMware – Going out with a Bang!

    There is a lot of uncertainty with VMware at the moment. This is all due to the pending acquisition by Broadcom.

I decided to list the workloads I am looking to run (some of these are already in place) Infrastucture…

  • Lab Update – Compute

    Quite a few changes have happened in the lab recently. so I decided to do a multipart blog on the changes. The refresh was triggered by the purchase of a SuperMicro Server (2027TR-H71FRF) chassis with 4x X9DRT Nodes / Blades. This is known as a BigTwin configuration in SuperMicro parlance. This is something I was…

    VMC Host Errors

    When you run a large enough Infrastructure failure is inevitable. How you handle that can be a big differentiator. With VMware Cloud on AWS, the hosts are monitored 24×7 by VMware/AWS Support all as part of the service. If you pay for X number of hosts you should have X. That includes during maintenance and…
