For a very long time Intel 3700 series of SSDs has held the crown as the best all round SSD for the enterprise market. Intel did something special with this line of SSDs. They stop talking IOPS and latency at least as the main focus and started focusing on where it really would hurt mainstream storage vendors. What was new was QoS or consistency and power loss protection. These features are enterprise graded. Many vendors will claim that they have power loss protection, but non-like Intel did and even today, you have to understand the vendor’s power loss protection in order to validate if it is any good for your needs. This of course was not what hit most medias covering the SSD market. What Intel really changed here was the QoS you…Read More
Intel launched its first Optane-based product for the enterprise last week, the Optane SSD DC P4800X series. Summarizing of the technical details, the P4800X in its first incarnation is a 375GB SSD in an add-in-card form factor. Software defined solutions like VMware vSAN are uniquely qualified to take full advantage of this new technology, as they’re already architected to leverage advancements in hardware. VMware has done just that, offering launch support in both ESXi 6.5 and vSAN 6.5.
More details regarding VMware Cloud on AWS are starting to come out of VMware. Tonight I attended an awesome #vBrownbag webinar on #VMWonAWS, hosted by Chris Williams (@mistwire) and Ariel Sanchez ( @arielsanchezmor).
Today, March 19th Intel announced the Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X—the first flash device built on the much-anticipated 3D XPoint technology. This is exciting news for vSAN customers, since—as a result of Intel and VMware’s active collaboration—we are pleased to offer day 1 support of vSAN 6.5 and ESXi 6.5 with the Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X. This is the first Intel Optane NVMe drive (375GB) to be made available with more coming soon (750GB and 1.5TB).

Microsoft Azure Backup Server (MABS) is a cloud-first backup solution of Azure Backup to protect data and workloads across heterogeneous IT environments of enterprises. It is available as a free download with Azure Backup without the requirement of System Center License or an SQL license for the server DB. We are excited to announce that Azure Backup Server now supports VMware VM backup to disk and to cloud for offsite copy or long term retention. Prior to this update, Azure Backup Server protected workloads such as SQL, Exchange, Sharepoint and files on Windows servers running either on physical machines or Hyper-V, VMware virtual machines.
What can customers expect from VMware VM backup with Azure Backup Server
Agentless Backup: Azure Backup Server uses VMware’s VADP API to protect VMware VMs remotely without installing agents on vCenter or ESXi servers, freeing administrators from the hassle of managing agents for VMware VM backup.
Discoverability and Auto-Protection: Customers can seamlessly discover and protect VMware VMs residing on external storage targets too such as NFS and cluster storage. Managing large environments is effortless since VMs are discovered and protected at folder level. Any future VMs added to a protected folder are backed up automatically.
Integrated Hybrid backup: Customers can back up to disk for faster operational recovery and to cloud for offsite copy or long term retention.
Amazon Web Services has a few ways of giving you connectivity: internet, Direct Connect (a physical line) and VPN. While AWS has a ton of examples for firewall/VPN vendors, there is none for connecting with NSX. I needed to connect a NSX network with AWS for a proof of concept and had to figure out how to configure AWS and what settings to use on the NSX Edge VPN. Behold, the fruits of my labor!
