Google Cloud VMware Engine is on the market for quite some time. It’s functionality, price attractiveness, rapid release cycles and close proximity to other Google Cloud Products allowed to gain many happy customers and users. In Today’s post I will show you how to configure Google Cloud VMware Engine and how to start using it.
In May 2020 Google announced general availability of Google Cloud VMware Engine, Google’s first party VMware as a Service offering.
In this post I’d like to introduce you to the service, its unique features and why in a first place you should care about it at all :)
As you know I am working for Google Cloud where based on my experience and knowledge I have a lot of to do with customers who have VMware on-premises. Naturally this ties perfectly with Google Cloud VMware Engine - Google’s VMware as a Service offering. My customers always have a great concern about Backup & Disaster Recovery topics and I am really happy that VMware announced General Availability of VMware flagship Disaster Recovery solution VMware Site Recovery Manager.
After upgrading my old QNAP TS-453A to a QNAP TS-873 with 8 bays and tons of storage I finally had some time to explore additional storage options for my homelab. Now with 2 pools of storage with total capacity of ~ 35TiB I finally could start to use my NAS much more efficient.
In the previous post Configure QNAP NFS as VMware ESXi Dastastore I showed you how to configure QNAP NFS share as VMware ESXi Datastore.
In this post I will show you how to create a VMware ESXi datastore using iSCSI.
It has been a while since I wrote about NFS datastores and VMware ESXi. In my previous post How to add NFS export to VMware ESXi 6.5I used NFS server on my host back then. In this post I will show you how you can use QNAP NFS exports with VMware ESXi.
Today I wanted to install a fresh vCenter Server Appliance for further automatic provisioning with Terraform. When I wanted to install the vCenter Server Appliance I faced an error while I tried to mount ISO in Finder and execute the install.
vSphere 7.0 was announced by VMware quite a while ago vSphere 7.0 announcement but only recently I had some time to upgrade my Home Lab to vSphere 7.0.
In this post I will show you the procedure to upgrade ESXi to vSphere 7.0 using esxcli commands.
At March 10, 2020 | 11:00 AM PDT VMware organized an Online Launch Event.
During this event VMware is launching an incredible new portfolio to support Kubernetes, cloud native architectures and app transformation in your business.
Personally, I think the announcements will be huge. As I am all-in in Public Cloud story I hope this announcements will be huge and will impact customers who still are in Private Cloud world.
