Deploy StorMagic datastore with vCenter

Andrea Mauro gives a walkthrough on how to setup a shared datastore from previously deployed VSAs. He does this via the StorMagic integration plugin. There are more than a few steps, but Andrea makes the walkthrough easy to follow. This may take a few minutes to setup, but once done, you’ll have shared storage usable as a normal vSphere block datastore.


Deploy StorMagic VSA with vCenter

StorMagic presented at Tech Field Day last week. Andrea Mauro was one of the invited delegates, and before the event, he wrote a series of posts about their solution. In this one, we walks through deploying a StorMagic VSA directly from vCenter. To see what they announced at Tech Field Day, be sure to check out our full video coverage.


Back to Tech Field Day

Andrea Mauro is heading to Tech Field Day in Austin, coming up February 1st. He give a little context for his own involvements with past events, including some Virtualization Field Days and Tech Field Day Extras, but this is his first full Tech Field Day. He gives a rundown of his impressions of the presenting companies, but overall is excited to meet with other delegates, and to get into the technical deep dives. We’re excited to have Andrea coming to Austin, and can’t wait to hear his impressions of the presentations!
