Nested virtualisation becomes nested cloud (ProfessionalVMware)

It was magic at first, running multiple VMs on one server using a hypervisor. Then the magic was running VMs on a hypervisor that was itself a VM on another hypervisor. What if I told you that there was a cloud that is built on top of other clouds? A sort of cross-cloud cloud? And this cloud allowed you to take your VMs from vSphere and KVM straight into the cloud? No conversion, just copy the V...

Upgrade ESXi with VMware Update Manager (VUM) – [Guide] (ESX Virtualization)

On few of my previous posts I showed you how to patch ESXi hosts via CLI (Putty) or simply via CD/DVD where you put the CD in the server > reboot > change boot order in BIOS > upgrade.  Tedious, but works. Both methods are good when working in small environments or on ESXi hosts [...] Read the full post Upgrade ESXi with VMware Update Manager (VUM) – [Guide] at ESX Virtualiza...
