    It’s August and that means VMworld is right around the corner! Last year, we had an unprecedented amount of PowerCLI and automation-based sessions and that trend has continued this year!

    Getting Started with the NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud API

    As with any proper Software-Defined solution, NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud has an API to automate against. To be precise, the Orchestrator has an API to automate against. As you might have read in my post about the NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud Basics, the Orchestrator is the centralized management interface of the SD-WAN.

    What happened to MaxCostPerEsx41DS? It doesn’t seem to work in vSphere 6.x?

    Advertise here with BSA Today I received a question which also caught me by surprise, someone updated from vSphere 5.0 and he noticed that when doing an SDRS Maintenance Mode that the setting MaxCostPerEsx41DS did not work. This setting actually limits the number of active SvMotions on a single datastore. You can imagine that this can be desired when [...] The post What happened to MaxCostPerEsx41DS?
