Integrating RHV & OpenStack with Neutron

Hi folks, I recently posted an article on one of the official Red Hat blogs about the new Neutron integration between RHV and RHOSP. I have to say it’s very cool and might change the way you look at networking capabilities in RHV, at least if you’re also using RHOSP in the same data center.

How is NetApp integrating with oVirt and RHEV?

Hi folks, this is the 3rd in a series of posts where I talk about NetApp’s involvement with oVirt and RHEV. Previously I talked about how NetApp got involved in the first place, followed up by why NetApp is involved, and today I will conclude with what it is that we’re actually doing.

Captain KVM Presentation at oVirt Workshop / LinuxCon 2012

Hi all,

Just a very short post to share the link on the Linux Foundation site. Someone was kind enough to film my presentation and upload it. Unfortunately, the focus is on my ugly mug the entire time without any of the visuals (demos, slides, etc). But that’s ok, you’ll get the gist of it.

How did NetApp get involved with oVirt?

Last week, I was in San Diego for the oVirt Workshop and LinuxCon, where I presented on “Integrating oVirt with Enterprise Storage”. I’d like to go over some of the major points that I covered in my discussion, but I’d also like to explain why NetApp is involved in oVirt in the first place. In order to keep the posts brief, I’ve broken things up and I’m starting with how NetApp got involved with oVirt in the first place. Here goes… Continue reading “How did NetApp get involved with oVirt?”

What other KVM & NetApp demos would you like to see?

I’m happy to report that the demo on Offload VM Cloning from KVM to the Back-end Storage, pt2 is by far the most popular posting on my little blog since it’s inception late last year.

What other demos would you like to see? What other integration work would you like to see occur between Red Hat and NetApp? Are there other comparisons that you would like me to highlight?

I’d love to get your feedback!

Comparing RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V – pt3

In the previous comparison posts, we took a peek at how RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V compared in some cost scenarios as well as major features. In this final installment, we’ll take a look at what I believe is the most important feature. Let me give you a hint:

RHEV does not win here. Yet. Continue reading “Comparing RHEV, vSphere, and Hyper-V – pt3”
