Brien Posey shares best practices for keeping a handle on EC2 security groups -- essentially software firewalls -- to avoid confusion about which ones are actually needed.
Red Hat updated its open source, Kubernetes-based OpenShift application platform with a new OpenShift Virtualization platform, seeking to bring traditional virtual machines into the modern cloud-native, container/serverless computing era.
VMware virtualization solutions continue to expand in the public cloud space, as Oracle announced a new VMware solution on its cloud platform, following other major providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Microsoft Azure.
Linux and open source stalwart Red Hat announced Red Hat Virtualization 4.4, the latest update to the company's enterprise virtualization platform for traditional virtual machine (VM)-based workloads.
Brien Posey cuts through the confusion associated with allocating IP addresses to EC2 instances on the Amazon cloud, which is done automatically though users can also associate elastic IP addresses with instances.
Aside from third-party solutions, snapshots are the best option for backing up your EC2 virtual machines, says Brien Posey, who explains how managing the process is something of an art form.
Tom walks through his experience trying to get a virtual machine to be able to use an integrated GPU, and then do the same thing with a Horizon desktop.
Although VMware Horizon instant clones are easy to set up and maintain, removing them from an environment can be problematic as certain objects in vSphere are not always removed when an instant clone pool is deleted. Luckily, VMware offers a tool that makes it easy to remove these objects, and Tom Fenton helps you become familiar with this problem and learn how to resolve it.
VMware made news on a couple of fronts today, announcing its big VMworld 2020 conference is going digitial-only and introducing vRealize Operations Cloud, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering for wrangling operations in the VMware hybrid cloud.
Brien Posey explains how to keep tabs on your AWS storage usage, one of the biggest factors affecting EC2 virtual machine performance.
Tom Fenton does a step-by-step review of the installation and use of NetropyVE 4, a software version of the well-regarded Netropy hardware appliance for WAN emulation and testing.
Most EC2 instances are not intended to be publicly accessible, being assigned private IP addresses valid only within a specific virtual private cloud. However, sometimes an EC2 instance needs to be accessible to the public, like a web front end that needs to be accessible via the Internet. AWS makes this possible through the use of elastic IP addresses, and here Brien Posey shows you how to do it..
Although EC2 is normally a reliable platform for hosting virtual machine instances, things can and sometimes do go wrong, and here Brien Posey explains how to fix problems with an instance's boot volume.
Tom Fenton finishes off his series on how to install and use ControlUp, which allows you to troubleshoot and then apply corrective actions to issues that you are having in your vSphere environment. Here, he looks at advanced features he found interesting.
