Building Virtual Infrastructure – Boston, MA

20120409-112443.jpg

The Building Virtual Infrastructure seminar series has been better than i could have hoped, with my Atlanta and Los Angeles dates packed with enthusiastic folks I’d never met before. For Boston, I’ve dramatically revamped the seminar content, hoping better to illustrate my points.

Virtual Machine Mobility: Of What, and to Where and in What State?

Stepping out of a subway car is an entirely different matter when it's moving!

Moving cold virtual machine images from system to system, or even across great distances, is one of the main selling points of server virtualization. But it becomes much more difficult to manage movement of virtual machines that are still running, especially outside cluster or across WAN links. When talking about virtual machine mobility, it is important to consider what is being moved, the state it is in, and where it is going.

Announcing “Building Virtual Infrastructure”, My New Seminar Series With Truth in IT

Everyone dreams of a truly virtualized datacenter infrastructure, but how can we get there?

We are a turning point in IT infrastructure. It is now possible to build a completely virtualized and abstracted data center environment, one where applications and operating systems are completely independent from server, network, and storage hardware. Join me in 2012 at a new all-day in-person seminar series as I work through the challenges of building a virtual data center.

Two Online Events You Should Attend (And Two More That You Can’t)

I'll be presenting at two private events and one public webinar this week!

I’ve been quite busy lately recording webinars, writing articles, and setting up speaking events. This week, I’m in Boston and New York for private speaking engagements. I’ll also be recording a webinar with an exciting new storage/virtualization company, Nutanix, and I urge you to tune in to that one!

Storage for Virtual Environments Seminar, Seattle, WA

I'm updating my slides and preparing for another seminar!

The next date in my Storage for Virtual Environments seminar series is rapidly approaching, and I hope to see my Pacific Northwest readers there! I’ve made even more changes to the seminar content, adding more about vSphere 5 and including new VAAI and partition alignment info. There’s never enough time for everything I want to cover, of course.

Seminar: Storage for Virtual Environments, Cleveland OH

The view from my Toronto hotel was awesome, but not as great as the conversation with seminar attendees

The next date in my Storage for Virtual Environments seminar series is rapidly approaching, and I hope to see my Ohio readers there! I’ve made major changes to the seminar content recently, updating it with vSphere 5 news and rearranging the whole thing. I still feel like there’s not enough time to get to everything, but it’s a start!

The Deletion Dilemma

Deletion of data is not a high priority for most IT shops, but this ought to change

When was the last time you deleted data? Even at home, where we have autonomy and authority over our own data, many of us are digital pack rats. But at work? Never! No one ever deletes anything! Let’s talk about why this is.
