VM density testing by Taneja Group

jeff-boles-t.jpgDuring our HP Bootcamp at VMware Partner Exchange (PEX) last week, I was able to watch a presentation by Jeff Boles, Sr Analyst from Taneja Group.  Jeff talked about testing he had lead looking at VM density with HP 3PAR compared to a traditional array.  While I've talked about VM density here on ATSB and have highlighted our "Double your VM density guarantee", Jeff had some great information that really brings the story home for me. 

Jeff graciously agreed to chat with me and he talked through the same slides he presented at our Bootcamp.  I've created a few different versions of the discussion with Jeff.  It's about 20 minutes long and I have a YouTube version where I mixed the slides he used with the podcast.

VMware podcast with a couple of down under guys

I'm starting to pack up for my trip to Las Vegas and VMware Partner Exchange (PEX).  I was able to slip in a podcast with a couple of guys that are active in the VMware community in Australia.


Voting for top VMware and virtualization blogs

uncle_sam_vote.jpgMy colleague Eric Siebert has a blog at  Eric was really involved in the VMware community, and was the top contributor to the community (helping with technical questions) for a long time.  He started long before he came to HP as a resource to help others looking for VMware information and help. 


For the last few years, vSphere-land has hosted a vote for the top VMware and virtualization blogs and voting is now open for this year.  Last year, ATSB was honored to be voted number 33 overall and number 3 among storage blogs. 


I'm sure Eric would appreciate getting lots of people to vote and I sure would appreciate loyal readers like you voting for ATSB - so let the voting begin!  Head on over to vSphere-land and vote for your favorite VMware and virtualization blogs.
