dcThis past week I was in Austin, TX at DockerCon as well as attending a Dell EBC in Round Rock. This was my first year attending DockerCon. For a summary recap, please check this post on my blog.

One thing that I got out of this conference is that Docker Containers are now mainstream. Companies like Visa, MetLife, PayPal and intuit was at the conference discussing how they shifted from traditional application development using Java or .Net to using Containers. VMware released vSphere Integrated Containers 1.1 and Photon Platform 1.2 during the conference.

vSAN 6.6 was GA last week, 04/18/2017. Make sure you upgrade to get all the new features.

  • Software-defined data center: a strategic journey, not a technical destination – Your car might be partially software-defined without your knowledge, just as I found out not long ago. Now I don’t drive a Tesla, which was built from the ground-up with a majority of software-defined components. I drive your everyday, traditionally designed vehicle. Just by looking at it, you’d have no idea it included software-defined components. So how did I stumble upon this fact?
