What’s the next enterprise holy grail everyone is racing to? Multi-Cloud. Multi-Cloud right now is a huge focus for many big tech providers. NetApp, Veeam, Juniper, VMware, IBM, Microsoft, to name just a few. Paul Stringfellow breaks down why multi-cloud is so important to these players, and what are the major challenges.
Vladan Seget of ESX Virtualization comments: This article is here to help folks starting with VMware virtualization, not for experienced VMware admins, but even if this article is not your interest you can share to your followers as it might just be their interest. Small shops without budget usually gets the lowest possible packaging called […]
Curtis Preston of Mr. Backup comments: Are we breaking backup in a new way by fixing it? That’s the thought I had while interviewing Bryce Hein from Quantum. It made me think about a blog post I wrote four years ago asking whether or not snapshots and replication could be considered a backup. The interview […]
Justin Paul from Justin’s IT Blog comments: If you are a follower of my blog you might remember the Veeam Missing Manuals I put together a long time ago, they were pretty popular and seemed to help a bunch of people. With that said I thought, why not put the same thing together for Zerto?, […]
Ryan Adzima from Techvangelist writes: It’s been a busy 12 months at work and I’ve had my plate full with many, many projects. I’ve been rebuilding, updating, and virtualizing everything in my datacenter for over a year now. Now I don’t want to pat myself on the back too much (I’m no Blake Krone) but […]

They deal with multiple hypervisors, but they don’t deal with physical. Veeam knows this, and does this deliberately. Doug Hazelman made this clear in his presentation. So what’s to […]
Matthew Norwood from In Search of Tech writes: I had the pleasure of seeing a presentation from Veeam as part of Tech Field Day 9 in Austin,TX back in June. Since I primarily work in the route/switch/wireless world, backups are not something I normally deal with except when it comes to off site replication. Even […]
Like everyone else, I have been reviewing the Release Notes for the latest Update 1 release of vSphere 4.1, but I decided to point out specific fixes that will make full image VM backups better for everyone. Note that I work for Veeam Software, but the fixes I am referring to are all VMware resolved issues that surface from time to no matter what backup solution you use. There are numerous other fixes and impovements in the U1 release, but, since most of my world is backup these days, these particular items â€œpopped outâ€ at me.
NetEx was my first surprise when scheduling presenters for Tech Field Day 5. Their technology does indeed accelerate data transfer over a network, but it’s much more useful than I expected. NetEx is a data movement accelerator and makes what others do better.
This week’s Tech Field Day roundtable discussion is an audio chat on the subject of Symantec’s VMworld-related announcements.
