vSoup #60 – Doesn’t Anyone Remember Paula?
Here we go again. After a prolonged break, we’re back with a new one! This is episode 60, which is a decent number by any standard. No guest, just us three hosts shooting the breeze. Bonus points if you remember Paula, no bonus points if you have to listen to figure out what we’re talking about. Ok, fine, you’ll get some bonus points for listening. Lazy bullet list of topics: – Travel difficulties and missing flights – Nokia Reboot – TSA checking hardware – VCSA and containerization – Technology fortune telling and PaulaThe post vSoup #60 – Doesn’t Anyone Remember Paula? first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup #59 – Snapchat IT and a Sack Full of DevOps
A while back we recorded one with Simon Eady, and then vanished into a black hole of laptop crashes and corporate access. After Ed did some extensive digging, and probably some undisclosed felonies, we’ve managed to our hands on the recording, so here it is! Lazy bullet list of topics: Unsupported configurations Death of C# client VRA Tech Unplugged People, processes and technology Architecht job title gripes Token cloud discussion Being a customer, reseller or vendor positives and negatives vendors badmouthing each other on Twitter.

vSoup #58 – Pre-dirtied low hanging fruit
Amit Panchal This time we got Amit Panchal to spend some time with us, and since we recorded it, we might as well just publish it. Right? We also get into Christian’s new job, and how he suddenly got his VCAP-DCD. How about that VMworld thing, who is going? Oh, and VMware made some announcements right when this one was recorded, so naturally we mention that too. Add some buzzword bingo, and your fruit might just come pre-dirtied. Og low hanging. Whatever floats your boat, and suddenly Dropbox de-clouds itself. It’s a strange fruit world indeed. The post vSoup #58 – Pre-dirtied low hanging fruit first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup #57 – Bipolar Hipster-IT
Welcome 2016! We’re back! We’re back! The plan is to release one monthly episode in 2016, and impressively enough we are right on track. At least so far. Since it’s been a good 6 months since the last one, we went commando. Perhaps commando is a feature of Hipster- and bipolar-IT? Are we trendsetters now? Anyway, we touch on the Dell EMC deal, on how VMUG topics are changing and weird job titles. Obligatory Cloud/Hybrid-Cloud talk is obligatory, and so are goals for 2016. Just give it a listen, will ya?The post vSoup #57 – Bipolar Hipster-IT first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup #56 – Shakeweights
Minding my own business yesterday a wormhole opened up on my desktop and an MP3 popped out of it. The episode you are about to hear is the contents of that file… you have been warned ! A little about what was going on in the world at the time – EMC Had just bought Virtuastream which led us to chat a little bit about the relative benefits of buy vs build. Horizon Mirage rears its beautifully groomed head a couple of times too! Is a 15 minute deploy time for a product really a benefit ? Will you ever look good with one of these ? We are on the hunt for some guests to help keep the 3 of us just about sane ? if you’ve got something good to talk about , then we’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org The post vSoup #56 – Shakeweights first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup #55 – Bob’s Your Uncle with Plankers
Your Uncle? (Photo by Stephen Foskett) We’ve gone full circle, sort of, with a return of the wonderful Bob Plankers as our guest. You know, The Lone Sysadmin guy. The hosts enjoy is blog posts, and we sure do enjoy having him as a guest as well. After all, he was a guest in our fourth podcast back in 2011 as well. This time around, we talk about what all the cool kids talk about: Hyper-convergence, Fibre Channel vs IP Storage, the future of VMware and containers! Are we on fleek or what?! And when you think about it, is open source really the drug dealer model, and is EMC turning into your local hood’s friendly street pharmacist? And if so, what does that make Chad?The post vSoup #55 – Bob’s Your Uncle with Plankers first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup #54 – But Mom, I Don’t Want to be a Developer with Matt Brender
Matt Brender No we are not quite dead yet, we’re just pining for the fjords. We’re joined by Matt Brender, a “community-centric marketer. Developer Advocacy @Basho“. We have no idea what that means, but at least Matt tries to explain it to us. Of course, we get into Open Source, and the people aspect of it, and does everyone really have to be a developer these days? Oh, and the exciting world on non-relational databases. Anyway, that’s enough, just give it a listen will ya? The post vSoup #54 – But Mom, I Don’t Want to be a Developer with Matt Brender first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup Filer Swinger Parties #53
Beyoncé Northam Beyoncé Wood So, lets get 2015 started with an episode recorded way back in 2014. We’re sorry about the delay, but this one needed some time to simmer. After all, one of our guests ends up singing. To find out which of our two guests, Julian Wood and Matthew Northam, channel his inner Beyoncé, you’ll just have to listen. Besides random singing, we talk tech holiday toys, hyperconvergence and when it’s not (EVO:RAIL + Filer?!), some really bad storage guy jokes and stockholder swingers parties, which correlates nicely to vCenter availability. Remember, if you’re not honest, you risk getting tossed off. And perhaps even more importantly, if you like it then you should have put a Filer on it.

vSoup Double Dippin’ the Wahl #52
Chris Wahl (Not Spongebob) We got the double VCDX Chris Wahl, and we got him to spill the beans on where the VCDX-NV’s came from. And no, it is not from the Iliad. We talk certifications, and answer the age old questions; “Is is wise to try to certify when you are hung over?” and “Can a server actually blind you?”. There has to be some some wisdom hidden in there somewhere. Chris is also doing a VMUG tour of Europe, bringing along his immense Minesweeper knowledge. Be sure to catch “Chris does Europe” if possible. Other than that, Proximal Data, cache products (including the usual rant from Christian) and home lab talk. All in all a really mixed bag of somethings, which I guess sums us up pretty nicely. The post vSoup Double Dippin’ the Wahl #52 first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup Who Let the Frank Out? #51
We got Frank’d, and that is not a bad thing. Frank Denneman joins us for a discussion about travel, writing and publishing books, dogs with ebola and HA/DRS Deepdives. How´s that for a rather mixed bag of nuts? Since Frank is an evangelist for PernixData, they get a mention too, but this one is decidedly very light on the marketing side. Just the way we like it (aha-aha). So, if you’re into book, dogs and ebola, sprinkled with some virtualization, this one comes highly recommended. Now there is a narrow demographic if there ever was one.The post vSoup Who Let the Frank Out? #51 first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup Mike goes EVO #50
Our regular guess Mike Laverick is back, this time talking about EVO:RAIL which clearly is his new thing. As we all know, Mike is a man of many words, and EVO seems to be one of the new ones added to his vocabulary, and he sure knows how to use it. Kidding aside, this entire fiftieth episode of vSoup is pretty much entirely about EVO:RAIL; the what, the why and the how. Fifty recordings? Really? That’s a lot of soup. Also, next week is VMworld EMEA, and both Chris and Christian will be there. If you’re in Barcelona find us and say hi! Also, if you schedule allows it check out the vBrownBag TechTalk schedule for VMworld EMEA 2014, we’re recording a live show on Wednesday 15th between 12:30 and 13:15 – Pop on by and you might even be our guest!The post vSoup Mike goes EVO #50 first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup Things Can Only Get Better #49
Three men left behind in Europe during VMworld US. There is no way anything good can come of this, right? While you ponder that little conundrum, why not give the latest episode a listen. Chances are that you will have forgotten about the question once you get to the end of this no-guest edition of vSoup. Some, but not all, of the VMworld announcements get mentioned, like EVO:RAIL/EVO:RACK, vCloud Air and so on. At some point, Christian turns into Max Headroom, but that doesn’t stop him from not really knowing anything. Product names, and colons, OpenStack and printers. Is the future of vSoup printers? Who knows, all we know is that they play some cool tunes: The post vSoup Things Can Only Get Better #49 first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup A Most Peculiar Test Drive with Brian #48
We are joined by Brian Knudtson, (blog: knudt blog) for a mostly hyperconverged chat, including a car analogy. Yeah, we know you should never trust a car analogy, but we went there anyway. After all, who knows how we will deal with hyper-converged infrastructures a few years down the road (See what we did there?). We also touch on Julian Wood’s great How Policy will drive the Software Defined Data Center blog post, and since Brian’s our guest, VMunderground and the new Opening Acts program gets a piece of the headlight action. So, if you want something to do the next 44 minutes and 41 seconds, you know what to do. It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses. -Hit it.The post vSoup A Most Peculiar Test Drive with Brian #48 first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup Feeding Frenzy with Mr. Laverick #47
This time we welcome Mike Laverick back, where we finally give him a platform to promote his Feed Forward VMUG initiative. Jokes aside, it’s worth a listen if want to know what Feed Forward is all about and how to get involved. We also give our listeners a quick intro into how Mike works after a few G&T’s, and we discuss if more soft-skills are required by techies these days.

vSoup Single Glass of Pain #46
Finally, we have a guest again. David Owen joins us again, for a good 45 minutes of topic jumping and general discussion. We touch on quite a few topics, including Storage Field Day 5 (and it’s fallout/aftermath), SMBs, Mojo Stealing, FeedForward, disturbing mental images and Single Glass of Pain. Random? Nah, not us. It’s all very well planned.The post vSoup Single Glass of Pain #46 first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup Hairy Wizards #45
No guests, just hairy wizards. If that doesn’t scare you, give it a listen as we ramble on about things like the Swiss Navy, VMware Airwatch, Simon Long moving to the US and adaptation rates on new technology. We even talk about tablets, and the Top vBlog Vote 2014. Thanks everyone for voting us #2 in the Podcast category! As for the recording itself, well, some time things don’t really go according to plan, even if you don’t have a plan to begin with.The post vSoup Hairy Wizards #45 first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup Flashdance #44
What a feeling, being’s believing! This time we have Vaughn Stewart from Pure Storage. As since this, thankfully, is audio-only we have no idea if he was wearing leggings or not. Just like Irene Cara we have moved past that awkward third album phase, and discuss a few topics ranging from epic bus rides, all flash storage arrays (AFA) to upgrade issues. Oh, of course, the VCP recertification policy gets some airtime as well. It clocks in at an hour, so there better be some content in there somewhere.

vSoup Convergsation #43
Once in a blue moon, when the stars align just right over the northern hemisphere, wonderful things happen. We don’t know if that was the case here, all we know is that we are joined by Matt Northam from Nutanix. Naturally we talk about the pending VSAN release, converged infrastructures and Nutanix. Has virtualisation reached the same complexity levels as it’s predecessor? Also, since Matt has a dark history in security, we touch on that too. We also get some rare insights into Ed and how he works. Both professionally, with his current migration project, but also when he starts arguing with his own echo for some reason.

vSoup Commando Monday #42
Once again we go commando, that is without a guest. We get into the Wardrobe malfunctions and public speaking and the FeedForward VMUG initiative. Monster VMs, and 1 to 1 virtualization, is it really an option, and why? A little storage discussion regarding RDMs, NPIV and Christian shares a story about 3Par / StoreServ reclamation and SCSI UNMAP issues. Obligatory VCDX talk is of course obligatory.The post vSoup Commando Monday #42 first appeared on vSoup.

vSoup Nested Accountants #41
Another naked one, with just the three of us. Budgets and accounting, and Christian kind goes on a rant. And this podcast thing, does anyone really care/listen to them? Oh, and Google buys a bit of hot air/smoke Nest, is that an internet of things or an internet of Google? And we couldn’t resist, should VCDX design samples really be available?The post vSoup Nested Accountants #41 first appeared on vSoup.
