Interview talking about xVM Ops Center

A few months ago I was filmed at our Grenoble Engineering Center talking about xVM and xVM Ops Center's architecture... it was ad-libbed, Luke, doing the interviewing, deliberately didn't follow the rough interview structure we'd agreed upon (thank you Luke!), this shows a little in places, but all the same, people locally have said that it explains quite well some more about xVM, so here it is for you to see too:

The second half is a white-board session that explains how xVM Ops Center's distributed management approach manages both physical and virtual machines through their various different management access points, a picture might be worth 100 words at least...

I was also the interviewer in another video, this time with our local resident Principal Engineer, Roch Bourbonnais, talking about storage performance, and in particular the performance of the blazingly fast and cost-efficient new Open Storage storage appliances that are capable of leveraging ZFS, flash memory, and JBODs.

Enjoy!

xVM Server and xVM Ops Center 2.0

Our xVM portfolio was launched this week, and the products that I'm working on - xVM Ops Center 2.0 and xVM Server - are getting ready to ship.

What a ride! These past few weeks we've been working round the clock with our world-wide team to integrate and test everything, from the network discovery and provisioning of a machine that's just been unpacked and racked in some lab the other side of the world, through to the live migration of a virtualized machine running Windows, Solaris or Linux from one physical xVM Server to another. 

I love it when a plan comes together

We'll be demoing the products next week at VMWorld, I'm flying out tomorrow to help on the demo stand.

Here's a little peek under the covers at the APIs and data model behind the scenes.
