Datrium DVX Build Day Live Wrap-up

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.

VMware APIs as a Service using OpenFaaS and VIO Kubernetes w Cody De Arkland (@codydearkland)

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)[…]
