APAC Virtualization Podcast

All things virtualisation in the APAC region

Wanted: new host for APACVirtual Podcast

I hope everyone has had a great start to 2014! The purpose of this post is really to put my hand up to say I’m not able to give my best to APACVirtual anymore with my work commitments and to shout out to the community to hand over the project to someone with fresh enthusiasm and interest.

I’ve finally realised that I’d prefer to do few things half well than lots of things badly and as a result of this I’d like to ask if anyone would be interested in taking over the Podcast?  It would be a shame to see this podcast finish at episode 83.

So before looking forward, let’s look back and bask in some of the highlights of my hosting the podcast: -

  1. VCDX podcast with some great attendees
  2. VSA podcast
  3. vCloud Powered Service Providers
  4. Coverage of various VMworld/vForums/VMUG User Conferences
  5. Virtualisation Podcast Roundup
  6. Engineers Anonymous series, I think these was the best podcasts I did, some great information on being in Presales, an Architect, Evangelist, TechMarketing, Marketeer
  7. SDN & Virtualisation from a Network Engineer
  8. Technology interviews with a number of Vendors
  9. Openstack and Open Compute.

Let me know if you’re interested via twitter @cswaters1 and thanks for listening/participating!

Now is your chance to join the APACVirtual hall of fame previous list of hosts: http://apacvirtual.com/meet-the-hosts/ that include @andreleibovici @DemitasseNZ @Rodos @RomanT Look where they are now!

Episode 82 – APACVirtual / vSoup mashup live at VMworld Barcelona

Episode 82 - APACVirtual / vSoup mashup live at VMworld Barcelona

We tried to organise a live podcast for this episode, but the scheduling gods were against us so it ended up being a pre-recorded affair, apologies!  But it was great finally meeting the guys and getting the chance to criticise with some like minded individuals :-)
vSoup Special Edition #6 What? No Potato?!
In this special VMworld Europe recording, we are joined by Craig Waters from the APAC Virtualization Podcast and our usual VMworld stand-in, Ed Griegson. For once, Christian managed leave Norway and join the party, but this time Ed is missing.

This is decidedly the most ghetto recording we have done; Recorded on Craig’s iPhone connected to Christian’s microphone via Bluetooth with the same microphone connected to Ed G’s Macbook for power. Ed talks via a Skype connection on Christian’s iPhone which in turn is connected to an external speaker.

All of this just because the vBrownbag Crew packed their things together on wednesday. Slackers.

Oh well, enjoy this weird (yes, it´s back) roundtable discussion of all things VMworld, and a few things that are not. Oh wait, why did we need a stand in? Turns out we did not need one, but Ed G is always good fun.”

Check out the guys at vSoup on their podcast over at vSoup.net

vBrownBag TechTalks at vForum Sydney 2013

Great news, the vBrownBag TechTalks are coming to vForum Sydney. For those familiar with TechTalks you can go straight to the signup form here.

Tech Talks originated at VMworld 2012 where they provided an opportunity for community members, whose presentation submissions were not accepted into the main catalogue, to present the core of  a topic. TechTalks are a ten minute presentation by a community member for the benefit of the community. Since almost everyone working in technology has solved problems and learned something almost everyone could present a TechTalk. The format can be a slide deck or simply talking, they are usually about how to solve a problem or get the most out of a product. The TechTalk is captured on video and published on all of the vBrownBag distribution channels, on YouTube and Vimeo.  If the conference Internet connection allows, the talk is also live streamed from the show.

TechTalks are for community members to reach other community members, any topic that will help other people is good.  The one thing that TechTalks are not is an opportunity to present the corporate slide deck about a great product you would like us to buy. TechTalks are about up skilling and education, the only marketing should be from the TechTalk sponsors who help make the whole thing happen.

If you will be at vForum Sydney and you have learned something on the job then you should share your knowledge, signup to present a TechTalk, the audience is friendly and supportive.

By the way while you are signing up make sure you also register for VMDownUnderground, the community party before vForum.

VMDownUnderground party 2013

I’m very please to thank Veeam, NetApp and VMUG for sponsoring the VMDownUndergroud party which aims to get virtualization folk to talk together before vForum in Sydney.

The format is the same as the last two years, although the venue has changed. The format is drinks and snacks for a couple of hours, letting you mix with other people who are going to be at vForum.  Catch up with old friends you meet once a year or make new friends, we encourage the sponsors to also send their tech people so bring questions for the sponsors. The venue is Cohibar, which is closer to the vForum venue and has view of Darling arbour.

Head over to EventBrite and register, we will see you there.

VMDownUnderground 2013

WOW, it is getting close to vForum Sydney, you can pre-register at this site.

Like the last two years we ill be organizing the community warm-up party for the night before the conference starts. So book your travel to be in Sydney on Sunday afternoon so you have time to freshen up before we get started.

We haven’t finalised a location but the format will be the same, hang out with the other community connected people and have a drink and some nibble with the compliments of our awesome sponsors. This year we’re working closer with the VMUG guys so we should have a wider range of people to talk with.

When we’re a little closer we will put tickets up on EventBrite as usual.

EPISODE 78 – Flash in the Datacentre

Mike Laverick was joined by Alastair Cooke to talk with, friend of the podcast, Frank Denneman about how PernixData’s FVP product can alleviate storage performance issues on vSphere without re-architecting the SAN.
