In this second part of the podcast series (part1 is here) with Cormac Hogan we focus once again on vSphere 5.1 and the changes in the storage layer. Cormac works within the Technical Marketing team within VMware. As you might know the folks in TECHNICAL marketing, are more TECHNICAL than marketeers! Cormac has started his own blog at cormachogan.com and tweets at @VMwareStorage – and of course he’s a regular contributor to the blogs at VMware especially in the Storage blog.
In this part 2 of the series we focus on these topics:
- Boot support for the Software FCoE Adapter
- All Paths Down Enhancements
- Storage Protocol Enhancements (iSCSI/FC)
- Advanced IO Management and SSD monitoring
- SIOC/sDRS Improvements
- Storage vMotion Enhancements
