This blog post serves more as a collection of links to other blogs about new announcements that VMware has made during VMworld.
1. The new vRealize Cloud Universal offering. With this new hybrid subscription offering, VMware is providing customers the flexibility to consume both on-premise and SaaS vRealize Suite …
In this blog post, we will be going over how to deploy HCX on both your VMware on AWS SDDC and also on-prem.
So what exactly is HCX? One of the main features of HCX is stretching networks between on-prem and your VMC on AWS SDDC. (It does not have to specifically be to/from a VMC SDDC). Also you can …
In this post, we will be taking our previously deployed TKG workload cluster and make it accessible through a public IP using NAT.
First, we deploy an application. I’ll use yelb. See the previous post on how that works.
Here we see that our application is deployed. Let’s look at the load balancer IP.
As we …

First, we log into the NSX-T Manager, and go to the Upgrade tab under system. Here, we …

So what exactly is this for? Well, in my use-case, I will be using this server to encrypted virtual machine files and drives.
Sadly during server maintenance, the contents of this blog posts were corrupted.
For now, I will link you all to a TechZone article that explain you what to do. A video on this will be coming soon once I get to it.
Time for a new blog post about the adventure I’ve been having for the past two days.
On June 2nd, my server, a DL380G6 started to suddenly take-off. The fans were roaring at 70%, and the temperature sensor near the PCI Riser was showing 110 C. Of course this is not supposed to happen, in this blog post, I …
This post will be about the current state (05/20/2020 06/04/2020) of my home lab. Please keep in mind that I also have two ESXi hosts that I rent from a datacenter in Germany that I partially use for my home lab (though they are nowhere near as powerful as my home server).
Here are some pictures:
