vExpert 2020 and vSphere 7

I achieved vExpert status for the third year in a row. I am glad my contributions to the community have made a difference to help me reach this achievement. My mission is still the same: write articles that will assist someone that is facing the same issue I had.


VMware announced their next major release of vSphere, which is about 5 years since their last major release. vSphere 7 has a lot of focus on Kubernetes. I honestly think Kubernetes is not yet a good fit for the majority of customers. Embedding Kubernetes in ESXi will be nice for customers to start using it in the future. Perhaps it will even push for quicker adoption. I am more excited to see improvements in some of VMware’s core features, such as vMotion and DRS. 6.7 U3 was a big release for vSAN. Looks like there is soon more to come to vSAN like NFS. Check out VMware’s blog for in-depth details.

1 Year Down!

Next week will be one year since I launched my blog. I started off strong with posting articles and then I started to slip. I wish I had more time to write articles. I was tied up preparing for the VCAP6-DCV Design Exam the last few months of last year. It took more time than I expected to pass it. Then I started a new job in December, which has been keeping me quite busy. I am not focusing on VMware as much with this job as compared to my two previous jobs. I am working a lot with storage and Windows Server Failover Clustering. I am getting more settled into the job and hope to be able to write more articles.
