Why the Overall User Experience Extends Beyond the Application

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Solving problems is why I initially started my career as a software developer; the thought of solving a problem by directly developing/coding something that thousands of people would use was extremely appealing to me; there was also a lot of creativity that went into this. I remember at that time one of the hottest technologies was Java and J2EE which is also what I was working quite a bit on in the those days. (more…)

NSX Multi-site Solution Leveraging F5 BIG-IP DNS and Palo Alto Networks Security

On this site and on the VMware Network Virtualization blog site, I’ve written several blog posts on multi-site solutions with NSX. This post expands on my prior post, Multi-site Active-Active Solutions with NSX-V and F5 BIG-IP DNS posted here on the VMware Network Virtualization blog site. (more…)

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 2016: Multi-site Networking and Security with Cross-VC NSX

Throughout 2016, I’ve presented multiple sessions on Multi-site with NSX, Cross-VC NSX, and Disaster Recovery. If interested, you can view some of the public presentations I gave this year at EMC World and VMworld below. I’ve also listed the repeat session if the session was presented more than once and if both sessions were recorded. (more…)

Humair’s Blog – Finally Removed the Registration Requirement for Leaving Comments

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Apologies for getting this done so late. I have had many requests in the past to remove the registration requirement for leaving comments. I get a ton of spam mail and spam comments, and that was the main reason for this requirement. Spam was really a pain; I also had to manually delete the spam and then search for and approve legitimate comments – I found out the hard way that I do not have enough time for this. Today I finally got around to implementing a spam filter (which as of yet remains to be seen how well it works). For now, no more registration required and no more moderation. (more…)

XenServer, Hyper-V, and ESXi – Architecture, API, and Coding

Monday, December 24th, 2012

VirtualizationBelow is a link to the slide deck for a presentation I gave to some friends/colleagues for a Berkeley Virtualization and Cloud Computing certification course I took in early 2012. For my final project I did a XenServer, Hyper-V, and ESXi hypervisor comparison in regards to market share, architecture/installation, and APIs/coding. The project involved not only a presentation but coding for all three hypervisors – XenServer, Hyper-V, and ESXi. Technical details, demos, and coding examples are provided in the presentation. You can also download all code from either the download section of this site or for the latest code updates download from GitHub. (more…)

HumairAhmed.com: Top 500,000 Websites in US – Not Bad for a Blog!

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

BloggingWell, it looks like I’ve finally broken into the top 500,000 websites in the US in terms of traffic according to Alexa. Not bad for a semi-periodically updated blog I suppose. Most sites, especially personal blogs, don’t even make the ranking let alone break the 1,000,000 barrier. My global ranking is still around 4,000,000 to 5,000,000, which is still good for a blog.
