VMworld 2018: Rubrik Style
I first got involved with VMworld in 2015, and every year brings something new both in the depth of learning and the unique community activities. And, of course, I’ve been able to meet some great people I now call my friends. VMworld is quickly approaching, but this time, I have a different seat to watch and participate from. This is the first year I get to go as a Rubrik Technical Marketing Engineer, and to say I’m excited is a major understatement. The team has many activities planned that are sure to help anyone attending. We hope to see you at our sessions, booths, and legendary VMworld party with performances by The Roots and Run-DMC.

Get Your “VMware vSphere 6.5 Host Resources Deep Dive” eBook!
With an average 4.9 out of 5 star rating on Amazon, Frank Denneman and Niels Hagoort’s latest book, VMware vSphere 6.5 Host Resources Deep Dive, certainly lives up to the expectation. The book covers four main topics: CPU, Memory, Storage, and Networking. The in-depth read can only be described as a serious deep dive for people who seriously want to understand what is going on under the covers of their VMware environment. I don’t think I have ever seen topics like NUMA or NIC drivers explained at this level of depth. If you ask me, it is fair to say that Frank and Niels redefined the term “deep dive.” – Duncan Epping, VMware Chief Technologist and previous co-author with Frank on the Clustering Deepdive series. As Frank and Niels describe it: The VMware vSphere 6.5 Host Resources Deep Dive is a guide to building consistent high-performing ESXi hosts. A book that people can’t put down. Written for administrators, architects, consultants, aspiring VCDX-es and people eager to learn more about the elements that control the behavior of CPU, memory, storage and network resources.

Heartbroken by vSphere Data Protection?
Has the end of VMware’s vSphere Data Protection left you spurned? Getting dumped hurts. So, take your time and play the field. Just know that when you are ready to move on to a more serious relationship, Rubrik is ready for you. To add insult to injury, VMware is offering three years of Avamar Virtual Edition licensing for free. . .as long as you have less than 4 TB; otherwise, you have to pay. And, regardless of how much data you need to protect, you must continue to pay maintenance costs. Ouch! What is this – alimony? Love really can hurt. But it doesn’t have to! There are no limits to Rubrik’s love. Have more than 4 TB of protected data? No worries! Rubrik uses a linear scale-out approach to solve data growth concerns. Simply add more briks to accommodate your company’s data growth. VMware will continue to focus on the vSphere Storage APIs – Data Protection (VADP), which Rubrik leverages to backup your virtual machines. This is great news, but your company may not use 100% VMware virtual machines. Fear not–we’re diversifying our portfolio by providing support for physical Windows and Linux servers, as well as Microsoft SQL databases. Speaking…
