Oracle Broadens x86 Virtualization Support, but Work Remains

Today EMC’s Chad Sakac blogged about a significant update to Oracle’s support policy for VMware ESX environments – Oracle no longer explicitly excludes Oracle RAC from being virtualized. It should also be noted that Oracle’s support is limited to “issues that either are known to occur on the native OS, or can be demonstrated not to be as a result of running on VMware.” In other words, if it’s not a known bug, customers may be asked to reproduce problems on the bare metal. Like Chad, this is an issue I have blogged about repeatedly... [Lire la suite]

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]
