we work in IT infrastructure and we help other people in the IT industry to be better at their jobs by learning about IT. The most frequent activity is producing the vBrownBag podcasts and we also produce TechTalks at conferences.
The vBrownBag crew host podcasts where community members present on topics that will help others in the community. Some podcast series are aimed at helping people achieve certifications for example VMware’s VCP and VCAP certifications. Other podcasts help community members learn an entirely new subject area like the Couch to OpenStack series.

The Oracle Ravello Build Day Live was our first event without a hardware product. That made travel easier for me as I didn’t need to bring the vBrownBag mobile lab to Israel. Instead, we used the cloud, also known as somebody else’s computer. This is a central part of the Ravello value, not needing to Read more about Oracle Ravello Build Day Live Wrap-up[…]

The last vBrownBag Build Day of 2017 will be our first Cloud Build Day. Jeffrey and I are headed to Tel Aviv to spend some time with the engineering team at Ravello. The one line summary for Ravello is that it is a cloud management platform that aggregates public clouds. They have their own hypervisor Read more about Announcing the Oracle Ravello Build Day Live.

The Datrium Build Day was different from other Build Days in that we were live almost the whole time. During the Build Day live stream, we use pre-recorded videos so that you don’t need to watch the progress bar’s slow progress. The pre-recorded videos are usually interviews or demos of things that we don’t do during the live stream. The only time we needed the pre-recorded for Datrium was when we had to wait half an hour for VMs to migrate. We did also play the usual unboxing video, that was more to give the crew a break than because we were waiting for anything. So, does this mean that it takes three hours to deploy the Datrium solution to a four-node vSphere cluster? No, we could have done the deploy quite a bit faster. In a real deployment, the slowest part will be getting two SSD devices available in each ESXi server. The initial configuration of the storage node is a few minutes and the deployment to each ESXi server a few more. You can see the whole live stream in this video on YouTube. Over the next week we will get the remaining videos added to the DVX Build Day Live playlist.

A vBrownBag “speed-round” where we saw how much Kubernetes, OpenFaas, and vSphere API’s we could cram into! VMware APIs as a Service using OpenFaaS and VIO Kubernetes Video We take an empty vSphere Integrated OpenStack Kubernetes cluster, and deploy OpenFaaS on it. In it’s normal state, it deploys to single node, behind a port. Traditional Read more about VMware APIs as a Service using OpenFaaS and VIO Kubernetes w Cody De Arkland (@codydearkland)[…]
