Hi everyone, anger short week and I just have so much still to do. I am preparing for my next exam as you know which is my desktop certification. I have just recently completed my IAAS exam and my home lab now has to be rebuilt in order to accommodate a full horizon suite implementation. I don't have that much kit at home so find myself doing this for each major technology I want to learn but it also helps me prepare everything from scratch. I will keep you up to date with my progress along the way and what I am doing to achieve my next certification.
Have a fantastic week and please join the official VMWARETAM twitter and Facebook pages.

  • Undeleeb Din, VMware Enablement Lead for the VMware Certified Instructor Program, details the VMware Desktop Certification programs.
    • By: Ed Hoppitt A significant slice of the problems that those of us running IT are dealing with today comes down to badly behaved users. In fact I spoke about the issue of badly behaved users in my presentation at VMworld last year. What I mean by “badly behaved” is that users are becoming more and more impatient and demanding.  They are used to having their own way in the consumer world of technology. And now they’re bringing their impulsive, demanding and impatient behavior to the workplace. I…

                    • In this post, I want to discuss one of the important enhancements in vSphere 5.1. It is obviously related to networking and has to do with providing monitoring support to virtual switch parameters through SNMP. We talked about the RSPAN, ERSPAN capabilities and how you can make use of these features to monitor and troubleshoot any networking issue. Similarly, using the new networking MIBs, you will have the visibility into virtual switches. Here are some of the basics on SNMP before I jump-in and discuss…

                          • Today I’m giving a keynote at Cloud Connect Silicon Valley entitled “Who Feeds Paris?” The question comes from a book called “ Naked Economics ” by Charles Wheelan.  What he means by “who feeds Paris?” is that there are millions of people who live in Paris and eat at least three times a day.  How could a government ensure that just the right amount of food is sent to the right grocery stores and restaurants to be consumed by the citizens?  Specifically, he states “…somehow the right…

                                    • One of the coolest feature in my opinion is Tagging in the new vSphere Web Client. Unlike Custom Attributes which was limited to an ESXi host and Virtual Machine object, the new Tagging capability allows you to create custom labels and metadata on ANY vSphere inventory object. In addition, you can have multiple tags per object and you can search based on tags to help you quickly find what you are looking and making this feature even more powerful. Just like with anything new, it takes time to get used to.…
