Replicate VM to vCloud Air using vSphere Replication
In my last post Disaster Recovery with vcloud Air we discussed what is vcloud Air Disaster Recovery service and saw how to prepare your infrastructure for replicating VM’s to Vcloud Air. This post is continuation of my last post where I will be demonstrating how to replicate VM from on premise datacenter to vCloud Air. Let’s jump into action straightaway.
TechTarget: Users give thumbs-up to lower-end versions of VMware’s NSX

CormacHogan.com: Kubernetes on Photon Controller
Another container framework that VMware customers can evaluate on Photon Controller is Kubernetes, developed by Google and now open-sourced. Kubernetes is another popular framework that allows customers to automate, manage and scale containers. Just like my previous article on Mesos and Docker Swarm, the Photon Controller and Kubernetes deployment steps are very similar.

#vRA and NSX – Using Baseline Security Groups
vRA and NSX came together back when vRA (a.k.a. vCAC) 6.0 was released, just as VMware was transitioning from vCNS to NSX. In vRA 6.x, inventory-collected security groups must be selected (checked) per Reservation prior to being available for consumption by a multi-machine blueprint (and only MMBP’s support NSX in vRA 6.x). As I’ve highlighted several times before, the latest release of vRealize Automation (7.x) delivers deeper integrations with NSX and unified service authoring capabilities to make delivering application-centric networks the new norm. See this post for how vRA and NSX are better together…I won’t repeat those details here.
#vSphere Thick Client End of Life – A Look at the HTML 5 Client Fling #h5client
On May 18th VMware announced the end of the road for the C# vSphere Thick Client. The next version of vSphere-the thick client-will not be available. VMware has been building up to this moment and previously announced they wanted to move to a web based client to have maximum comparability and mobility. The current versions of the vSphere thick client will remain supported (5.5, 6.0) until their end of life cycle. So what does the future look like for the vSphere Client? VMware will keep the existing Flash web client and introduce the HTML5 based vSphere Client. The Flash web client will remain so third party developers can migrate their plugins over to the long term HTML5 client.
