Personally I am very big fan of automation and infrastructure abstraction. As Terraform is leading in that field, I was very long time looking forward to GA of Terraform provider for Google Cloud VMware Engine.
I am super excited to let you know, that you can now use the gcloud command-line tool or the API to manage VMware Engine networks, network policies, and private clouds.
This new capability gives GCVE customer more flexibility and control over their VMware Engine environment.
Another exciting news from Google Cloud VMware Engine camp. On VMware blog website, VMware announced support for Google Cloud VMware Engine and VMware Aria Operations for Logs. VMware Aria Operations for Logs allows customers to easily analyze logs from across different environments in one place. By seeing all the logs in one place makes it more easy to troubleshoot complex issues and correlate issues across different environments.
Just recently Google Cloud announced that Google Cloud VMware Engine supports VPC Service Controls. This feature was long awaited by enterprise customers and in my opinion it is a game changer in terms of securing Google Cloud resources. VPC Service Controls (VPC SC) is a Google Cloud feature that allows you to define a security perimeter for your Google Cloud resources. This perimeter limits the exporting and importing of resources and their associated data to within the defined perimeter. In the next section of the post I will explain why is this important and how can we use it.
In my latest blog post https://www.wojcieh.net/gcve-stretched-cluster-is-ga/ I wrote about General Availability of Stretched Cluster in Frankfurt region of Google Cloud.
I finally found some time to built and test the vExpert Gitft which I received at VMware Explore 2022. The unit is quite small, compact and is completely fanless set. Let’s dive into the review.
Oh my, oh my, what a fun was VMware Explore 2022. Please join me into reading about VMware Explore from the Partner perspective.
Wow! What a news for Today. Google Cloud VMware Engine just announced that vSAN Stretched Cluster is generally available. This means that from Today onwards customers can leverage stretched clusters in their production environment.
After returning from VMware Explore 2022 from Barcelona I am very pleased and happy. There are multiple reasons to that which I explain in later part of the post.
