vSoup #59 – Snapchat IT and a Sack Full of DevOps

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 07:39:57 +0000

A while back we recorded one with Simon Eady, and then vanished into a black hole of laptop crashes and corporate access. After Ed did some extensive digging, and probably some undisclosed felonies, we’ve managed to our hands on the recording, so here it is! Lazy bullet list of topics: Unsupported configurations Death of C# client […]

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 21:28:28 +0000

This time we got Amit Panchal to spend some time with us, and since we recorded it, we might as well just publish it. Right? We also get into Christian’s new job, and how he suddenly got his VCAP-DCD. How about that VMworld thing, who is going? Oh, and VMware made some announcements right when this […]

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 19:25:58 +0000

We’re back! The plan is to release one monthly episode in 2016, and impressively enough we are right on track. At least so far. Since it’s been a good 6 months since the last one, we went commando. Perhaps commando is a feature of Hipster- and bipolar-IT? Are we trendsetters now? Anyway, we touch on […]

We got the double VCDX Chris Wahl, and we got him to spill the beans on where the VCDX-NV’s came from. And no, it is not from the Iliad. We talk certifications, and answer the age old questions; “Is is wise to try to certify when you are hung over?” and “Can a server actually […]

vSoup Who Let the Frank Out? #51

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 08:12:43 +0000

We got Frank’d, and that is not a bad thing.  Frank Denneman joins us for a discussion about travel, writing and publishing books, dogs with ebola and HA/DRS Deepdives. How´s that for a rather mixed bag of nuts? Since Frank is an evangelist for PernixData, they get a mention too, but this one is decidedly very […]

Three men left behind in Europe during VMworld US. There is no way anything good can come of this, right? While you ponder that little conundrum, why not give the latest episode a listen.

VMware Workstation 8 gets some more well deserved attention too, including running Hyper-V in it. The value of conferences gets mentioned and so does the conference parties!
