在Linux上运行的VMware vCenter 2.5

的VMware 可以满足客户不断增长的对Linux支持的需求。对于那些想知道VMware是否或何时将其企业虚拟基础架构产品移植到Linux平台的人们来说,这些可能性的时机终于到了。

当公司准备通过其新的虚拟化平台释放大量新技术时,’客户忽略了要在Linux上运行VMware企业产品的事实。作为R的首席技术官兼高级副总裁Steven Herrod博士&上周在VMworld Europe 2009上提到的VMware的D代表,为满足这一主要要求,迈出的第一步是VMware即将支持在Linux之上安装vCenter 2.5。除此之外(还有很酷的部分!),VMware还将发布可在Windows或Linux上运行的设备版本的vCenter 2.5。 Linux上的vCenter 2.5的设备版本的技术预览现在可以从以下位置下载: Beta社区网站。

这是Linux上vCenter 2.5的屏幕快照的第一眼。它’s real!

3D哈德逊河上的奇迹

哈德逊河飞机降落美国航空1549航班动画& Audio

到目前为止,所有人都听说过这架飞机坠落在纽约市哈德逊河上。这发生在离我过去在纽约居住的地方几个街区的地方,所以感觉有点个人化,因为它离家很近。飞行员在这种情况下的镇定和专注力令人难以置信,他值得媒体关注。如果您像我一样一直想知道到底是哪里出了问题以及如何发生的,我们现在可以使用娱乐。下面是专业的3D动画,经过精确重建以匹配事件以及实际事故的声音。在与空中交通管制员交流时,听听飞行员的声音,表现出专注,控制和“准做”的态度,毫无疑问,这就是这架飞机能够完美降落的原因。如果一只机翼比另一只机翼先碰到另一只,或者鼻子下降的速度比它快几度,那结局就不会那么高兴。电视上关于这个人的所有言论都是真实的,甚至还不够。聆听并注意自己。我所知道的是,下一次我是否要登上飞机,然后听到:“欢迎乘坐美国航空843号航班,从纽约直飞洛杉矶。您今天的上尉是Chesley Sullenberger上尉……”哦,您会听到我对我的男孩“ Sully”大喊大叫,然后迅速进入我飞行中的最佳睡眠状态。

这就是您保持真实状态的方式!那个飞行员有严重的黄铜!!!!

花更少的时间来管理VMware,而将更多的时间投入到实践中!

Those of you who manage and administer medium, large, or even small 的VMware environments know that managing 的VMware ’s virtual environments from the GUI requires lots of repetitive tasks, tasks that cuts into precious time that could be spent doing something that you like more than just work.

Whether you want to spend more time with your spouse and kids, boyfriend or girlfriend, or my personal favorite… getting loose with the boys at the local pub (Hell Yeah!!!!),  or whatever it is that you might be into,  的VMware has some really awesome tools that can help you get some of the time back.  Well unless you’ve been working really hard or living under a massive rock, you should be aware of the 的VMware VI Toolkit for Windows.  This toolkit is based on 微软 PowerShell and can do some really awesome things in a 的VMware environment to help you be more productive and efficient.

Don’t worry you wont have to learn PowerShell from scratch to use it. All you have to learn is how to use the 的VMware predefined functions that have been developed for the VI Tool Kit. As I listed in a previous post, 的VMware is currently re-branding their tools and applications so when 的VMware vSphere is released later this year, look for the new name of the toolkit which is now vSphere PowerCLI.

There are so many things you can do with this tool:

  • Check virtual machines for VMotion compatibilities
  • Check active connections to CD-ROM’s, floppies, virtual networks, etc.
  • Check for virtual machines host locations
  • Disconnect virtual devices
  • Retrieve performance information from ESX Servers and Virtual Machines
  • Perform bulk migrations

This are only a few of the many of the many fucntions that the tool can help you with.  I hight recommend visiting the VMTN community site and look at what is available to you.  There are always great posts from everyone, specially from Luc (this guy is a VI Toolkit/PowerShell genius, who even won a contest 的VMware was hosting last year)  The toolkit is currently being enhanced and more features are being added to it for the current version of vCenter and ESX Server as well as the upcoming vSphere products.  Below you can see some video demos 通过 Carter Shanklin in which he shows how you’re going to get that precious time back when you use the 的VMware VI Toolkit (vSphere PowerCLI).  Enjoy. Carter Shanklin currently has a few more posting that are hosted at vimeo you should definitely check them out.
