Podcast Episode 83 – @Tech_LevelUp, #vFit, #vTrailMap and @VMworld with Yadin Porter de Leon (@porterdeleon)

VMworld is around the corner and we are joined by a hugely respected community advocate in Yadin Porter de Leon for this show. Yadin is the founder of the Level Up Project (https://www.linkedin.com/company/level-up-project/) and the mind behind the #vTrailMap which lays out a phenomenal list of folks and resources to get connected to for raising your skills and value in the virtualization community. We talk about the #vFit running group, #vCoffee exchange, #vTrailMap and much more.

You also gain some incredible insight into the work happening around mentoring and education that has become a significant part of what both Yadin and Eric Wright have been doing over the past few years with growing success in reaching out to people and helping them to get involved in technology as a way to change their lives.

Make sure to listen before you head to San Francisco in August and get caught up on what’s happening there!

Podcast Episode 81 – AWS Outposts and Serverless Twitter Thread Chat with Ben Kehoe (@ben11kehoe)

Ben Kehoe is a Cloud Robotics Research Scientist at iRobot and Serverless Hero (https://aws.amazon.com/developer/community/heroes/ben-kehoe/) among many things. After an exciting twitter thread which centered around what the upcoming AWS Outposts product could do (and perhaps be limited to) and the “why on-prem?” question that many ask, Ben joined me for a powerful conversation where we explore the advantages and challenges of cloud-owned features and so much which will be important to cloud ops and cloud developer teams everywhere.

Thank you to Ben for taking the twitter chat live and sharing great insights!

Cisco Workload Optimization Manager 2.2 Released!

The Turbonomic and Cisco teams have released our next Cisco Workload Optimization Manager platform with the most recent update to version 2.2, packed with much more cloudy goodness and also with the addition of new targets and more features in the cloud for both planning and real-time optimization.

One of my favorite parts of building out what I love to call the Cisco Stack is that the integration from the application (Cisco AppDynamics), down to the containers (Cisco Container Platform), into the virtualization layer (VMware, Hyper-V, OpenStack), and down to the metal (Cisco UCS, Cisco HyperFlex) including the network (Cisco Nexus, Cisco ACI, Cisco Tetration).

What’s Inside CWOM 2.2?

Big updates in this one also include cloud pricing enhancements, custom pricing (any cloud), Azure CSP rate cards, and the ability to do future planning for reserved capacity purchases on AWS which is not available in any platform to-date.

The release aligns with Turbonomic version 6.3 for the feature set so you can get a quick view of what’s inside the latest in my sizzle reel here:
