Have you registered for Pure Accelerate yet? You should do it right now.
The next great conference where you actually learn about what is pertinent to your passion for IT. Develop insight for what is next, and hear from your peers and industry experts about moving to the next generation of IT.
In 10 years you will tell people, yeah, I was at the very first Pure//Accelerate, I was there before EVERYONE else. You can be the IT hipster all over again. Before it moved to Moscone and had 30,000 people. You can move to Portland and drink IPA’s and post pictures of them to Instagram.
Pretty sure my friend Cody Hosterman has talked about this until he turned blue in the face. Just a point I want to quickly re-iterate here for the record. Run unmap on your vSphere Datastores.
Read this if you are running Pure Storage, but even if you run other arrays (especially all-flash) find a way to do UNMAP on a regular basis:
Additionally, start to learn the ins-n-outs of vSphere 6 and automatic unmap!
Speaking of In-n-out…. I want a double double before I start Whole 30.
As I no longer have view into roadmap for anyone. I thought I would make my wish list for announcements coming from VMware in 5 days. Actually it is a wish item.
No FLASH vSphere 6.x Webclient.
Browser plugins should go in here:
(and you all thought I was biased toward flash)
Honestly though there is nothing worse* than when my Adobe Flash plugin is old or I can only hit the vCenter from a jump server that you don’t want to install crappy browser plugins. I don’t want to buffer my time by 15 minutes to upgrade the flash plugin every time I need vCenter to do something. Right, I didn’t need my 27 browser tabs anyways when Adobe asks to close all browsers on my system. <rant over>
*I know there are worse things in the world, call this a “VMadmin World Problem”
