VMware NSX and Zerto - Testing DR Plan

VMware NSX and Zerto - Testing DR Plan


In a few prior blogs I posted on this site and on the VMware Network Virtualization blog site, I described and demoed how VMware NSX and SRM with vSphere Replication combined provide for an enhanced disaster recovery (DR) solution. SRM also provides additional integration with NSX when Storage Policy Protection Groups (SPPGs) are used by providing the ability to automate network mappings. One of the great things about the NSX-V platform, is it can be used with any DR orchestration tool that supports the VMware vSphere ESXi hypervisor. Some of the tools customers are using with NSX include VMware SRM, Dell EMC RP4VM, Zerto, and Veeam. As SRM was discussed and demonstrated in a prior blog, Zerto and NSX together is explained in more detail below. (more…)

VMworld 2013 in San Francisco

VMworld 2013 in San Francisco


I’ve been meaning to write this blog for some time now as VMworld 2013 ended in San Francisco in late August.

With an agenda filled with back-to-back speaker sessions, hands-on-labs, discussions on the solutions exchange expo floor, networking opportunities, and informal after-hour events, VMworld has catapulted to a must-go-to event for those in the high tech industry of networking, systems, and Enterprise/Datacenter infrastructure.
