Lockdown mode could be useful to achieved maximum restriction to ESXi hosts. Let’s decide to activate lockdown mode in VMware vSphere together at this post.

Large or small environments have same challenges about updating operating system and the challenges are about automation, reporting and notifying end-users or administrators. Control My Update is a fling which written by VMware engineers to have more control about Windows updates.
Virtualization platforms such as VMware vSphere or Linux KVM supporting large scale of virtual machines now. Even, virtualization platforms can host monster virtual machines as database server. At this post, we’ll review database backup solutions in virtualization platforms about advantages and disadvantages.
I’ve read a strange news today about Dell EMC Unity XT. Seems there is a bug on some older OE and storage processors will be rebooted after 275-300 days.
I’ve published many articles about STOR2RRD and LPAR2RRD monitoring software for monitoring servers, OS, storage, SAN, LAN and other devices. XORUX has released new version of the monitoring suites with new features and capabilities. Let’s review the new features, capabilities and changes.
Enterprise businesses such as banking business using latency sensitive applications. Most of application delay issues are related to network infrastructure. Also most of application server are Linux servers. How can we measure network latency on Linux?
We are all knowing LACP on ethernet network but Fibre Channel and SAN network providing multipathing I/O by using logical and physical paths as single device on operating system and also using path selecting policies for using I/O paths optimized. But if server using 16Gb/s FC HBA, so there is no bandwidth aggregation. Server can generate bandwidth for each port up to maximum speed of port and also path selecting has performance impact of server when large paths are presented to server. Months before, I was thinking about FC port aggregation and did many searches but I didn’t find anything until now.
During virtualization revolution, physical servers replaced with virtual machines to run multiple different workloads on a single server hardware but virtual machines were still large and needs some resources to run as isolated servers. Virtual machines needs to have their own operating system and applications. Also they needs to manage and configure separately. MicroVM or Micro Virtual Machine offering benefits of two different technologies and Firecracker will help you to implementing MicroVM.
