A few weeks ago, I talked about “Storage Virtualization & Scaling Out Your KVM-based Virtual Infrastructure”. I want to expand on that theme, and I’ll probably do that several times over the next few months. This time, I’ll focus a bit more on one of the specific ways that we can truly scale on demand with RHEL 6, KVM, & NetApp Clustered ONTAP using pNFS (Parallel NFS).

If you’re going to NetApp Insight in Vegas, be sure to come see Chris Tusa of Red Hat and me on Wednesday of that week. We’re presenting on Red Hat & NetApp and we’ll cover the RHEV roadmap, the NetApp integration roadmap, and some joint opportunities.

I wanted to point out that there is another oVirt Workshop coming up, this time during LinuxCon Europe and KVM Forum in Barcelona. Unfortunately, I can’t make this one as I have conflicting events that week, but I want to help promote it just the same.
Why come to the workshop? The 3 big reasons to come to any oVirt Workshop are:
- Learn more about oVirt and KVM in general
- Learn how to contribute and get involved
- Network with other like-minded folks and leaders in the community
The dates are November 7 through November 9 and you can browse the schedule of sessions at http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/kvm-forum/schedule . If you’re already going to KVM Forum, try and make it to the oVirt Workshop.
Last week, I had the pleasure of presenting at Red Hat’s mini-theater twice at Oracle Open World. I had a great week splitting my time between the Red Hat and NetApp booths. Since then, I’ve been asked multiple times to share my presentation of Deploying Oracle 11g on RHEV & NetApp, and while I have no issue with that, the embedded demos make it larger than most corporate email systems will allow in or out (mine included). Soooooooo.. I figured, why not just re-work it as a blog post? (warning, this post is a little longer than my other posts.. it didn’t feel right breaking this one up.)
