Zerostack for a cloud managed datacenter

Raff Poltronieri put together a walkthrough of ZeroStack’s current private cloud platform. Overall, he liked that the UI is easy to understand, while still supporting some powerful configuration options. Raff thinks it might be easier to manage than a typical AWS UI. We’ll see what ZeroStack has in store for us at Tech Field Day in Austin, coming up in February.


Solarwinds Virtualization Manager – not to be missed in a cloud

Raff Poltronieri was looking for a way to deal with data coming out of vCenter Realize Operations. He tried out the Virtualization Manager from SolarWinds, and really liked the implementation. Raff liked that automation is baked right in. The other impressive thing about the solution was the ability to manager a variety of VMs within a single interface. The dashboard view allows you to drill down as much as you want without leaving. If you decide to install agents on the VMs, you can also get performance metrics down to the application level, very impressive. Raff is looking forward to seeing them at Tech Field Day in February!
