Hear more from Exablox at Storage Field Day 13

As I continue along with some SFD13 previews I stumble upon Exablox.  Exablox is one of the few presenting companies at SFD13 that I know very little about so I’m excited to hear what they have to offer and say come June 14th in Denver when the event kicks off.  Also,  Exablox is coming into

Primary Data set to make their 5th appearance at Storage Field Day

This June @ SFD13 Primary Data will make their 5th appearance at a fully fledged Tech Field Day event despite having just GA’d their flagship product just 9 short months ago at VMworld 2016 (They have a few TFD Extra events as well).  Now, pardon my math but for a company that was founded in

My Veeam VMCE-A Course and Exam Experience

First up a bit of a back story – as a Veeam Vanguard I was lucky enough to have received the required training last June in order to qualify for my VMCE exam, which I wrote and passed in August of 2016!  A nice little perk of the program if you ask me!  Anyways, earlier

A field day of Storage lay ahead!

I’ve had the awesome opportunity to participate in a few tech field day events throughout the last few years, travelling to Austin for VFD4, Boston for VFD5, and finally San Jose for TFD12 just last November!  To be honest, these days provide me with more knowledge than a lot of the week long training courses I





#VeeamON 2017 – Wait! There’s more!

If you packed your bags up and started to shutdown after the Wednesday keynote thinking you have heard the last of the VeeamON announcements then you might want to think about digging out that notebook and sharpening your pencils again as we aren’t done yet here at VeeamON 2017! Thursday, Paul Matiz took the stage

Veeam announces the new Veeam Powered Network (Veeam PN)

During the final keynote of VeeamON 2017 Veeam took the stage and threw down the guantlet on a brand new Veeam product release, the Veeam Powered Network, or Veeam PN for short. Veeam PN is a new product, not a feature added to any others, which was initially developed to solve an internal issue within

A glimpse into #VeeamVanguard day!

Sure the Veeam Vanguard program comes complete with tons of great swag and free trips to VeeamON and whatnot – but in all honesty the biggest benefit of the program in my opinion is the access that Veeam provides – access with fellow Vanguards and access with key people within Veeam, across the whole company

Veeam Availability Suite v10 – what we know so far…

Although we got a hint at some of the announcements coming out of VeeamON during partner day on Tuesday it was really the general session Wednesday morning which brought forth the details surrounding what Veeam has in store for the future.  In true Veeam fashion we yet even more innovation and expansion into their flagship

Veeam Availability Orchestrator – Automation for your Disaster Recovery

As a member of the Veeam Vanguards here at VeeamON 2017  we got to spend a couple of hours with Michael White (@mwVme) who gave us an update on Veeam Availability Orchestrator – Veeams’ answer to orchestrating and automating fail-over to their replicated VMs.  Michael certainly is a great choice when looking for someone to





No vMotion for you! – A general system error occurred: vim.faultNotFound

vMotion is pretty awesome am I right?  Ever since I first saw my first VM migrate from one host to another without losing a beat I was pretty blown away – you always remember your first   In my opinion it’s the vMotion feature that truly brought VMware to where they are today – laid

VCSA 6.5 Migration deployment sizes limited!

Recently I finally bit the bullet and decided to bring the vCenter portion of a vSphere environment up to version 6.5.  Since the migration from a Windows based vCenter to the VCSA is now a supported path I thought it would also be a good time to migrate to the appliance as well.  So with
