Time for a Change

  After 15 years of working with various IT consulting companies, or VARs (Value Added Resellers) – I’ve decided it’s time for a change.  While I’ve enjoyed the time, and the opportunity to work with lots of different technology and products, what I’ve found is as an IT generalist, you sometimes feel like you can’t dive deep enough into certain areas.  To change that, I’ve decided to dive deep into a product I love and focus on it and it’s ecosphere.  Thus, the big news: I am joining Veeam!

VMware discontinues vSphere Data Protection

On April 5th, VMware announced that they would discontinue VDP, vSphere Data Protection – VMware’s integration backup solution.  Now, VMware will not have an integrated backup solution but instead will rely (as they should) on partner solutions that utilize official vSphere APIs. https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2149614 Several years ago, VMware had 2 versions of VDP – standard and Advanced, and both were based on EMC Avamar technology.  I’ve played around with it and had it deployed at a couple small customers.  However, the product was not the best in terms of recovering from[…]
