[Review]: VMware vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO)

VMware vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO)

This is not a new features on last vSphere version but I went to write a post about that. We had to deploy different replication scenarios for our customers and some customers needs Point-In-Time Recovery (PiT) and The PiT solutions using VAIO actually so learning about the API is necessary for administrators.

The vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO) were introduced in vSphere 6.0 Update 1. The VAIO framework and program were developed to provide VMware and partners the ability to insert filters for I/O into the data path of virtual machines. These “I/O Filters” enable VMware, and partners, to intercept and manipulate the I/O. This manipulation can provide open-ended data services, but thus far is limited to four use cases, two of which are currently exclusive to VMware and two which are open for partners. These use cases are: Replication, Caching, Quality of service (VMware only), Encryption (VMware only).

[Review]: vSphere 6.5 Update 2

vCenter 6.5 Update 2

Today, VMware has announced vSphere 6.5 U2 with lot of new features and fixes on components specially on ESXi and vCenter. vSphere 6.5 U2 has some new features that backported from vSphere 6.7 . VMware recommended upgrading vSphere 5.5 to vSphere 6, 6.5, so vSphere 6.5 U2 is good choice for upgrade virtual infrastructure with less impact, because many hardware that supporting vSphere 5.5, don’t compatible with vSphere 6.7 . Upgrading to vSphere 6.5 Update 2 from vSphere 5.5 requires a minimum version of vSphere 5.5 Update 3b prior to performing the upgrade.

[Review]: Nakivo Backup & Replication 7.4 (GA)

Nakivo Backup & Replication 7.4

The below new features are added to the new version and “Automated VM Failover” is my favorite. If disaster strikes and your virtual infrastructure goes down, fast recovery is of the utmost importance. NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.4 features VM failover jobs, which can automate and simplify the VM disaster recovery process. The VM failover jobs include re-IP and network mapping rules, which ensure that recovered VMs can function normally at the DR site. This makes the failover process automated, seamless, and entirely effortless, even in large environments.
