TechEd 2014 recap

Microsoft TechEd 2014 recap

Right time for my whole Microsoft TechEd 2014 Recap. Where to start? There can be only one place to start! VMware Virtual SAN was the winner of best Virtualization at TechEd! Lets say that again, VMware Virtual SAN won best of Microsoft TechEd.  Brilliant!   TechEd 2014 Recap Right, thats enough boasting and gloating!  Although VSAN is an awesome product, its not what I was at TechEd for.

AWS Summit Review by a VMware guy – Part 2

Yesterday I attended the AWS Summit in San Francisco.  I wrote part 1 of my AWS Summit Review series yesterday, and this can be read by clicking here. That article focused on the feel of the conference and gave some details on the keynote. What I want to talk around in Part 2 is the technical sessions I attended, and what I felt about those.

An interesting area I thought were that they provide different types of service that are optimised for the workload: Compute-Optimized General Purporse Micro INstances Memory Optimized Storage Optimized GPU Instances They are updating the hardware revisions, and have multiple hardware revisions, for example, compute1 (c1) cluster compute 1 […]
