This week’s VMware Communities Roundtable was jam-packed with virtualized goodness and no filler, additives, or high-fructose corn syrup.
First up was Robert DiFalco, Tripwire’s CTO of Products, to talk about the new Tripwire ConfigCheck. Next we had VMware’s own Scott Drummonds, who talked about pushing VI to extreme limits, both with a record number of Exchange mailboxes on one physical server, and with carrying out 100,000 I/O operations per second on a Very Big disk array. Yes, you can do that in a virtual machine.
As always, you can listen by clicking on the widget at right or by directly downloading the mp3. (54:43 duration)
