VMworld 2016

本年度VMworld重回拉斯维加斯,相比旧金山各方面都要好很多,参会这几天有不少乐趣。技术层面,本年度vmworld主要聚焦于用户端统一管理、公有云、以及vmware自家的“超融合软件”。
第一天的主题演讲回顾了近十几年来传统IT、私有云、公有云的增长趋势,这里有个很有意思的地方。我一直以为IT的转变方式应该是从传统到私有,最终到公有的。但是从演讲看,私有云和公有云占有率同时保持增长,公有云甚至一直比私有云要高一些。但直到今年云的占有率依旧不敌传统IT架构,这还是在国际大公司接近80%虚拟化的现状下。演讲中还提出了一个观点——数字化商业。今天,企业都在追求创新、高效的商业,IT已经不像过去仅仅支持企业内部的信息系统,而是引导企业走向何方,IT更加紧密的和商业结合在一起,很难想象一家没有技术驱动的企业可以高效的与客户沟通和分析数据、快速的对市场做出反应、自动化的生产经营。第二天的主题演讲介绍了一些用户层面的新解决方案,由于本人不关注该层面,没有太多了解。

How to configure nested Hyper-V VM on VMware Workstation

First, I would like to recommend DELL M4800 for small home lab, I spent lot of time to looking for a solution for my lab, I need some hardware low noise, low weight, and it is better portable. I checked out HP mini server, Apple MAC mini, Mac book pro…etc. They are nice products to show best design of IT industry, but no one perfect. Finally I choose DELL M4800. The reason is RAM can be upgraded to 32GB. 3 SSD hard disks is supported, you can install one native SSD, one in CD-ROM slot, another msata SSD in WAP slot. SSD disk is must have for IT LAB, it can provide you more than 10K IOPS without significant performance degrade.

Okay, back to topic…if you want to testing Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V on lab, you probably prefer install it on a VM of VMware Workstation. You have to follow up proper steps to make sure the Hyper-V functionally.

After you create Hyper-V VM:

  1. Keep VM power off status.
  2. Go to Settings of VM.
  3. Highlight Processors.
  4. Select Virtualize Intel VT-x/EPT or AMD-V/RVI option.
  5. Go to Options tab.
  6. Highlight General.
  7. Select Microsoft Windows.
  8. Select Hyper-V on drop-list.
  9. Power on.
