Après le rachat d'Isilon par EMC, quel avenir pour le Celerra ?

Au détour du WEB, je suis tombé sur cet intéressant reportage sur Isilon réalisé lors de la tribulation de quelques frenchies sur la côte Ouest. On y apprend que les produits de l'entreprise de Seatlle pourraient remplacer la gamme Celerra. Donc, à défaut de maintenir plusieurs gammes hétérogènes, on peut en déduire que EMC qui devait sortir une nouvelle gamme de stockage mid-range convergent Clariion/Celerra se sera ravisé en se positionnant de fait en concurrent direct sur le coeur de mérier de NetAPP : le NAS ...NFS, le protocole...

VMotion, the story and confessions

There is something I always wanted to know and that is how VMotion(yes I am using the old school name on purpose) came to life. After some research on the internet and even on the internal websites I noticed that there are hardly any details to be found. Now this might be because the story isn’t as exciting as we hope it  will be or because no one took the time to document it. In my opinion however VMotion is still one of the key features VMware offers but even more important it is what revolutionized the IT world. I think it... [Lire la suite]

Configuring Remote Management of Hyper-V Server - in a workgroup

I have received a number of questions about how to go about setting up remote management of our free Hyper-V server (not the one that is part of Windows).  So I thought I would sit down and write up a set of blog posts to talk about how to do this.  Today I am going to talk about how to remotely manage a Hyper-V server from a Windows 7 desktop when in a workgroup environment. I am going to assume that you have already installed Hyper-V server and have configured the server name, workgroup name and networking appropriately... [Lire la suite]

Am I supported? (now you know)

Anyone who has worked with virtualization software knows that sometimes the hardest question to answer is “but is this configuration supported?”.  This is a question that Microsoft has spent a lot of time trying to answer – and a while ago we started the Server Virtualization Validation Program (SVVP for short) to provide a way for Microsoft server software to be fully supported on a variety of virtualization platforms (those from Microsoft and from other virtualization vendors). Recently the SVVP team updated their website to... [Lire la suite]

Time Synchronization in Hyper-V

There is a lot of confusion about how time synchronization works in Hyper-V – so I wanted to take the time to sit down and write up all the details.  There are actually multiple problems that exist around keeping time inside of virtual machines – and Hyper-V tackles these problems in different ways. Problem #1 – Running virtual machines lose track of time. While all computers contain a hardware clock (called the RTC – or real-time clock) most operating systems do not rely on this clock.  Instead they read the time... [Lire la suite]
