E2EVC 2015 Lisbon Day 2
On the 14th November 2015 the second day of E2EVC Lisbon took place. It’s bit like the show must go on after the tragedy in Paris last night. My day 2 experiences can be found in this blog.
The day started with a session by Ingmar Verheij about the Internet of Things which about connecting everything with everything. Ingmar started explaining why he started with IoT, getting insights in the power consumption of his house and the regulations of the heat reduction and humidity in the house. Ingmar continued with the starting points: things (Arduino, raspberry Pi, intel Edison), GPIO, electronics. With some cool nice demos Ingmar showed the possibilities of IoT.
Second session of the day I attended was XenServer deep technical dives by Robert Breker. Robert started with the percentages of hypervisors used for XenDesktop 7.x and the popularity of XenServer on Cloudstack and Openstack. Robert also touched that the NetScaler MPX is running on top of XenServer as well. Robert continued with the releases of this year XenServer 6.5 with SP1 (64bit, network trroughput, quicker network establishements, storage throughput, more running VMs, memory based read caching for NFS). Robert continued explaining containers (Dockers) and how XenServer handles those, followed by GPU pass-through for Linux guests, XenServer supports Nvidia, Intel and AMD. Next topic was XenServer Dundee Technlogy Preview: SMB virtual disk storage, open-FCoE, NFSv4, offline virtual machine migration, Intel GVT-G, citrix insight services integration automated, improved hotfix application process, new hardware support, improved dom0 responsiveness, improved active directory scalability). The session ended with some Q&A.
