Duncan Epping, VCDX #007 with a license to pimp VMware, is our guest.
A promising young lad that might just have a future in the virtualization space, if he plays his cards right.
We talk about Duncan’s next project, vShield App, Hairy Security Guys, and we get the answer to the ultimate question “What is Duncan doing in Technical Marketing?”
Chris’ provides a great quote from his bed time lecture, and does he really eat food prepared by underwater virgins in Ecuador? Also, another important question: “Why no VAAI?”
Listen now, and we promise it’s the last time we talk about Christian’s potatoes. Honestly.
Ok, we lied. The first tvSoup was not the last, and here we are again with another live video recoding from VMworld Europe 2012.
So here it is, tvSoup #2 – Live from VMworld Europe 2011. Of course, the potato is still present.
Ed and Chris are both present in the studio, but Christian, who can’t be at VMworld this year, is back home in Norway. Thankfully his presence is emulated by a potato.
We’ve (everyone besides Chris that is) decided to leave this up to you, so here it is The vSoup VMworld 2011 Poll:
Be sure to vote NOW!
Arjan Timmerman is our esteemed guest in episode 17. Arjan is one of the rather huge dutch virtualization army, and a really nice guy as well.
We get into all sorts of topics, like P2Ving Domain Controllers, Christian’s new job, Ed’s possible Asian rim job, and can you, as a consultant, really say to to a client/customer?
Also, for some reason we get into replacing Christian (at VMworld Europe) with a potato, and the possibility of having Chris wandering around Copenhagen wearing a green bikini. Two things the world isn’t ready for, at least not the bikini part.
VMware Workstation 8 gets some more well deserved attention too, including running Hyper-V in it. The value of conferences gets mentioned and so does the conference parties!

Again, we get going with a new competition for our listeners, and yet again, we’re giving you the change to win a virtualization book. This time the prize is the VMware vSphere 5 Clustering Technical Deepdive, written by Duncan Epping (yellow-bricks.com) and Frank Denneman (frankdenneman.nl). You can get your hands on a signed copy of the book, if you can answer the two questions Arjan asks in the podcast.
Note: The first question has changed to this:
“In a vSphere 5 Cluster, if the Master Node fails an election process is
started. Explain this new election process.”

Once again the vSoup crew get involved with extreme sports, and get three guests all at once. Lugi Danakos, Chris Cicotte and Tim Oudin from the vCommunity Trust joins us to explain just what they are up to, and why!
We even get into some rather “hairy” suggestions for future fundraising activities for the vCommunity Trust and we eagerly await the various vendors response!
Note: We have to make a correction after the fact, the #vTrust structure allows sponsoring of any candidate globally and not just US.

Episode 15 of vSoup comes to you just before the VMware community avalanche that is VMworld hits your tweet stream. Featuring two guest who not only share the same name, but neither of them are actually going. Simon Long and Simon Seagrave join us for a chat about the vbeers tweetup initiative, building out labs and the dangers of relying on hotel/conference wifi!
Three hosts, three guests. What could possibly go wrong?
Stephen Foskett and Matt Simmons from Tech Field Day join us for the first time, and by popular demand we welcome back Bob Plankers! Naturally most of the talk revolves around Tech Field Day #7 which is right around the corner, but we manage to squeeze in some vSphere 5 as well.
It’s been a while, but back in vSoup Visio is for Girls #12 we ran a little competition. We are pleased to announce that Pat McCloud has won a physical copy of Cloud Computing with VMware vCloud Director by John Arrasjid, Duncan Epping, Steve Kaplan Ben Lin, Michael Haines and Raman Veeramraju. Pat, Christian will be in touch to get the prize sent your way!
Mike Laverick, the SRM guru, is our guest and we get into all sorts of goodness: VMUG’s, SRM, VMworld bands, some vRAM semi-speculation and vBeers get some attention too! What is an unconference? Are we commoditized yet?
Lukewarm on the heals of the “Raising the bar , Part 5″ webcast held by VMware today , Ed and Chris Deputize David Owen ( to sit in for Christian , who is currently sunning himself ) for a special reaction chat to the biggest VMware software launch yet. In our own vSoup way we talk about the pro’s and cons of the new features - will the additional licencing cost be worth it ? will it affect our choices of hardware ? why no Microsoft “Me too” announcement ?
Normal vSoup service will be returned once we’ve thawed Christian back out.
