The vTrailMap is a gift that the Tech Level Up Project (LinkedIn – Twitter), the lovechild of Yadin Porter de León‘s volcanic brain, brings to to the #vCommunity. While TLUP’s objective is to mentor, help and enable IT community members so they can boost their career opportunities, the vTrailMap is specifically aimed at using VMworld as the opportunity to bring together IT Professionals and Community volunteers and contributors in a single directory easily accessible and rich of readily available resources.More »
In the last few years virtualization technologies have changed dramatically and irreversibly the way modern Data Centers are designed, implemented and managed. In modern DCs, virtual to physical ratios are growing constantly, due to the commonly accepted evidence that every workload is now a candidate for successful virtualization: cases where 100% of the systems are virtual are not uncommon anymore.
This clearly requires a different approach to many – if not all – the tasks that fall into the Operations area. Backup and Replication are probably the two tasks that more than any other have changed as a consequence of the opportunities that virtualization has presented to infrastructure designers, engineers and administrators.
