Sorry for the long hiatus, vacation calls. Spent 10 days at the beach and now ready to get back at it.
Some new papers came up while I was out. DPM, Distributed Switches, and Chargeback.
- VMware Distributed Power Management: Concepts and Usage – DPM has great power savings to use less when the workloads are lower. I’ve seen customers use it for server workloads but where it really hits home is desktop workloads. Definately worth a read.
- VMware vNetwork Distributed Switch: Migration and Configuration – Distributed switches – Distributed Switches are a huge administrative benefit. This paper explains how to migrate to distributed switches in your environment.
- VMware vCenter Chargeback 1.0 Evaluator’s guide – Chargeback is great for putting fixed and variable costs to your VMs and assigning them back to lines of your business or cost centers.
