Weekend reading: new blogs

New blogs for your weekend reading enjoyment. I should be adding some of these to Planet V12n in the near future.

New VMware ThinApp Blog from Travis Sales. Recent posts include:

VMware’s Erik Gray has a new blog, VCritical. His latest post: What would things be like without VMFS?

Jason Boche, who you may recognize as a VMware Communities moderator, has started a new blog at boche.net/blog. His latest post: ESX partitioning a lost art form in ESXi

ESX administrators evolve from varying backgrounds where they dealt
with a range of operating systems. Each administrator brings their best
ideas, experiences, and nightmares the he or she would probably like to
forget, to the table. With the ESX Service Console (Console Operating
System or COS for short) based on a version of Red Hat, Linux and Unix
administrators were natively the best equipped to carry on an
intelligent conversation of Linux partitioning “Do’s and Don’ts”.
However, ESX did add a few twists in how it used the COS and the file
system. Taking into account the native behavior of Red Hat in addition
to the ESX specific characteristics, partitioning best practices
evolved. While not every administrator will agree on the exact size a
given partition should be, a pattern in how ESX is properly partitioned
is fairly evident, plus or minus the partition size variance that fits
the personal taste of the administrator or perhaps company baseline
policies or standards. ESX partitioning strategy was an art form; maybe
something to brag about when getting your geek on in a circle of peers.

One thought on “Weekend reading: new blogs

  1. Jon Owings

    Thanks for the link. Nice that someone found the site. Now I just need to find the other VCP so I can have some time to post more to the blog.
    Thanks again.
