Favorite Quotes of the Day

We were built from the ground up to understand virtual work loads

The Log file, the index, …. Create different luns for each of those. Basically with Tintri you drop it in, we will configure it

Once upon a time you would have different tiers in the array, Tinti does not work like that. Constant Profiling

We deliver flash like performance with a hybrid

We can take a snap shot of individual VM’s.

It’s incredibly fast and incredibly space efficient.

The way we built our systems so stable we don’t often get calls from the customer

DB as a Service – T-Shirt Sizing.

Self-service has to be easy otherwise people won’t use it

The default scheme in windows is balanced. Not a good idea if performance is your goal

VMXNET3 is the greatest and fastest controller we have, you should use it

SDDC means I am bring all the intelligence from hardware to software

SDDC We abstract out the network and the security

Continuous availability for all FT-protected workloads

Micro-Segmentation Every critical app has its own security requirements.

FT Best Practices – Intel Haswell EP and newer

FT Best Practices Use dedicated 10GigE or faster connection

Customer are facing more and more applications that require flexible and efficient management

vMotion can now be encrypted

When Clustering under vSphere it’s a stack 

Generally recommend having one physical AD server  is a small price to pay for a crucial piece of your infrastructure

All networking underneath the VM should be fully redundant.

Add Paravirtual SCSI device  first then add RDM’s disks and attach
