Using VMware Storage VMotion To Migrate A Running VM’s Disks

Storage VMotion is a nifty feature in VMware ESX 3.5 (it existed earlier but there wasn’t really any way to use it) for migrating a running Virtual Machine’s virtual disks from one SAN datastore to another without shutting the VM down. Previously the VM had to be powered off and then it was migrated from […]

Microsoft Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) Initiated VMotion Ignores VMware Resource Pools

It’s been well publicized that Microsoft’s System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) can manage VMware Virtual Infrastructure. In fact, Microsoft has demonstrated that SCVMM can initiate virtual machine (VM) VMotions between VMware ESX hosts.

Vendors Who Don’t Realize Virtualization Is Here To Stay

I second the vinternals commentary on Symantec. The security software vendor joins the ranks of the clueless with their wonderful support document: Question/Issue:Is ESX server VMotion supported with SAV and SEP? Solution:Symantec does not support ESX server VMotion at this time. Vendors are shameless. They charge you a ton for support, then they’ll do whatever […]

VMware’s Biggest Threat: It’s Not Microsoft

The tech industry loves great battles between rivals, and it is often tempting to frame challenges within the context of specific competitive battles. Many see the entrance of Microsoft or even Citrix into virtualization as VMware’s biggest threat. I beg to differ. VMware’s biggest threat is virtualization-lite, or the confinement of the virtualization business case to within […]

Virtualization and the Cisco Nexus Switch Combine to Kill Blade Servers

It is amazing how frequently we hear IT managers talk about deploying blade servers as an integral component of their new virtual infrastructures – as if there were an obvious synergy between VMware and blade server architectures.  The opposite, in fact, is nearly always the case.

ZEN and the Art of VMware ESX Storage VMotion (or ‘A Quick Guide to Storage VMotion’)

Ok, so there’s not much Zen happening here but it sounded like a cool title for a posting and I like the Zen pics I found…  ESX Storage VMotion is probably something you’ve heard of before, if not used.

VMware Replicates Hyper-V Quick Migration with a Powershell Script

It’s not a secret that VMware loves the Microsoft Powershell scripting technology. And it’s not a secret that VMware loves to humiliate any Microsoft effort to compete with Hyper-V.

Microsoft: Stop Complaining About VMware Price and Build Some Product!

Full disclosure: I like Microsoft. I, much to the chagrin of many of my data center peers, like them a lot. I think some of their larger-scale data center management moves have been excellent ones, and I happily run two flavors of their OS across multiple physical and virtual machines. But that’s not to say […]
