I always tell my students that one of the main groups of facts that they should be studying for the test is configuration maximums, especially if they are higher than those of the previous version. Well, that means that “we” have some more studying to do now; because the configuration maximums that VMware announced for vSphere 6.0 have increased in just about every category regarding the design of clusters, hosts, and VMs.
Having heard the opinions of the administrators using the 5.1 and 5.5 vSphere Web Client, many of whom were in my classes, VMware has redesigned the vSphere 6.0 client to be much more user friendly.
It’s out with the old and in with the new as VMware releases VCP6-DT, a new certification for system engineers and desktop virtualization specialists, while at the same time announcing the retirement of the VDCA510 and VDCD510 exams.
High availability’s goal within VMware vSphere is to minimize downtime, not prevent it. This feature is available in all editions of vSphere except Essentials. It is designed to handle the failure of any or all of the following: Loss of a physical ESXi server. Loss of a virtual machine. Loss of an application within a […]

VMworld was as busy this year as it has been every year for the last 11 years. Here are the big takeaways from VMword 2014.
After missing last year, I am headed back to VMworld in San Francisco. By the looks of the schedule builder bursting with a whopping 375 sessions, not counting repeat sessions, in only 19 timeslots spread over four days, it’s going to be a busy week.
Achieving VCP5-DCV certification is a good way to distinguish yourself from others in the virtualization community. It’s also a great way to validate your technical capabilities as you look to advance your career. But that’s not all.
Up until now, the cost of managing and maintaining storage was deemed unavoidable and worth it to ensure high availability, shared access across hosts, low latencies, etc. These features will still probably be required for large, complex companies (and for core data center functions, etc.) for years to come, but in many other cases, they may not be required.
Celebrating its tenth year, VMworld was a busy event this year — as it has been every year for the past nine.
