If you’ve been on the operations side of the IT house, you know that one of your primary job functions is to ensure High Availability (HA) of production workloads. This blog post focuses on making sure applications deployed on a vSphere Kubernetes cluster will be highly available.
These documentation topics here apply when you have just received the Welcome to the VMware Horizon Service email and are ready to onboard your first pod. This onboarding set of topics outlines the relationship between the Horizon universal license, which entitles you to use the cloud-hosted services and to the subscription license, as well as outlining the process for your first-time onboarding a pod to Horizon Cloud. This first-time onboarding is the key that enables you to exploit your Horizon subscription licenses, onboard your existing Horizon 7 pods to the cloud-hosted services relevant to them, create new pods in Microsoft Azure, and leverage all of the cloud-hosted services that VMware Horizon® Cloud Service™ currently provides…Read More
Syslog is a way for VMWare vSphere esxi servers or other network devices to send event messages to a logging server – usually known as a Syslog server (Inbuilt vSphere tool called as VMWare syslog collector). The Syslog protocol is supported by a wide range of devices and can be used to log …Read More
Getting Started with VCF Part 6 – Workload Domain
The VMware Cloud Foundation 3.9 journey continues. In this post, we are going to build our very first workload domain (WLD). In part 5, we commissioned 3 x vSphere 6.7U3 ESXi hosts that will form the basis of our new WLD. A number of actions will take place during this deployment. Firstly, a new 6.7 vCenter Server will be deployed in the management domain. Then, the 3 commissioned ESXi hosts will be clustered together, allowing vSAN and vSphere HA to be enabled. We will also see NSX-T…Read More
Jobs in Cloud Native (The Podlets, Ep 14)
Our topic in today’s great episode is how we think jobs in software engineering have changed since the advent of cloud native computing. We begin by giving our listeners an idea of our jobs and speak more to what a job in cloud native would look like as well as how Kubernetes fits into the whole picture. Next up we cover some old challenges and how advances in the field have made those go away while simultaneously opening the gateway to even more abstract problems. We talk about some of the specific new developments and how they have changed certain jobs. For example, QA has not disappeared but rather evolved toward becoming ever more automated, and language evolution has left more space for actual development instead of debugging. Our…Read More
Broadly speaking, there are two main methods to migrate from NSX for vSphere to NSX-T Data Center: In Parallel Migration and In Place Migration. This blog post is a high-level overview of the above two approaches to migration.
Earlier I wrote a post on the migration between NSX for vSphere (NSX-V) and NSX-T (https://my-sddc.net/migrate-nsx-for-vsphere-to-nsx-t/) . I stopped after the migration was complete because the post was long enough already and promised to come back with an article on the environment and clean up afterward.
This post is a continuation of my experimentation with NSX-T deployment automation, working on a method to quickly deploy typical network topologies for repro and testing. In the first post of this series, we used cURL and JQ to collect NSX-T UUIDs and deploy a new Tier-0 gateway…Read More
#StorageMinute: Data Migration Pre-Check in vSAN 6.7 U3
In this edition of #StorageMinute, we look at a new feature enhancement to vSAN Maintenance Mode workflow called Data Migration Pre-Check. This feature performs a cluster-wide impact assessment of a host entering maintenance mode. This assessment dramatically helps an administrator make informed decisions while planning maintenance activities.
Rightsizing VMs with vRealize Operations
Rightsizing VMs is critical to get the best performance of your vSphere infrastructure and your VMs. Rampant oversizing of VMs can cause contention at the host or cluster level, which manifest as CPU ready, CPU co-stop, VM swap, etc. Undersized VMs can cause contention inside the guest OS, which manifest as CPU queuing, memory paging, The post Rightsizing VMs with vRealize Operations appeared first on VMware Cloud Management.
