vSoup Virtology with Joe #24

Joe Onisick

We´ve been graced with the presence of Mr. Joe Onisick, Cloud and Datacenter Guru and all around nice guy (If you agree with him, that is).

So, topics? We had a few:

  • Dell Quest Acquisition
  • VMware DynamicOPs Acquisition
  • Multi-Hypervisor Data Centers
  • Amsterdam TechEd – How does it compare to VMWorld
  • Conference arranged parties – are they worth it?
  • VMWorld discounted certifications
  • VMWorld Flash Talks!!!
  • Virtualizing Exchange
  • One to One virtualization – big benefits?
  • SMB 3.0 and it quickly turns to a File vs. Block discussion

Also, wow, no delay this time! We´re on fire.

Oh wait, it´s holiday season, so who knows when we will be back next.

vSoup Better late than never #23

Hal Rottenberg

Finally a new episode, that is way overdue because of Ed´s Asian Adventures. This weeks guest is PowerShell and PowerCLI Guru Hal Rottenberg, and in no particular order we get into:

  • VMworld sessions
  • Forum usage
  • When was your Powershell ‘Moment of Clarity’?
  • Mac use and associated challenges
  • Splunk and vSphere usage
  • Splunk + development in Powershell
  • News (old by now)
  • View 5.1
  • Norwegian Farming issues and resolutions
  • VCDX Wannabe
  • Possible Job opportunity in CH

As you can see, it´s quite the list and we throughly enjoyed finally being able to have Hal on.

Enjoy the vSoup!

vSoup Has it Been a Year?! #19

Welcome to a guest-less episode of vSoup, where the hosts find themselves left all alone in the big world pondering what hit them in 2011 and what’s going to hit them in 2012.

We get into all sorts of topics like Christian’s new job, Volkswagen shutting off off hours email, Ed’s Hyper-V to vSphere experience, Chris job stuff (Shameless Veeam Plugs aka B&R v6 and NFR licenses for just about everyone), SOPA, and how Eric Sloof ambushed Christian and got him on video.

Also, can you have moral qualms about globalization in software companies (offshoring)? Whats the deal with The Norwegian butter crisis and 2012: Will the world go under, or what? Will we see new vSphere Features? Is the future one the Multi- hypervisor datacenter?

Listen now, and some of that might just get answered. Or if not answered, it will get mention. A bit. Sort of.

tvSoup #2 – Live from VMworld Europe 2011

tvSoup #2 Live from VMworld Europe 2011
Ok, we lied. The first tvSoup was not the last, and here we are again with another live video recoding from VMworld Europe 2012.

This time we kidnapped Jason Boche, just to keep him away from the Dutch vMaffia, and stuck a camera in his face.

Of course, Jason delivers, as usual. We even nearly got Gregg Roberson on camera too, but somehow he managed to stay out of view laughing at us from a few Steps distance.

So here it is, tvSoup #2 – Live from VMworld Europe 2011. Of course, the potato is still present.

tvSoup #1 – Live from VMworld Europe 2011

For the first, and quite possible the last time, vSoup goes video! Recorded live at VMworld Europe 2011, with special guest Ed Grigson who blogs at vexperienced.co.uk.

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.

vSoup Ball Slinging #16

Luigi DanakosChris CicotteTim Oudin

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.

vSoup One Man Parties #15

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!
