Geaux Virtual

Helping virtualize the datacenter…

Where is it? It’s got to be here, it just has to be…

I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and since this is a new year, here is a list of 9 features or changes I would like see.

In no particular order:

9.  When doing a manual VMotion, maintain the current resource pool of the VM.  Only ask for a resource pool if I move the VM to a new cluster. (VMware)

8. Ability to configure one default alarm action to apply to some or all default alarms. (VMware)

7.  Utilize Cisco Nexus 5000 switches as VSMs for Cisco Nexus 1000v deployments. (Cisco)

6.  PowerPath support for QLogic QLE8100 series cards. (EMC; Yes, I know it’s coming, I’m just impatient)

5.  Native Mac VMware vSphere client. (VMware; I’m really reaching with this one)

4.  Removal of PowerPath License Server requirement (EMC)

3.  Port Profiles added to the Cisco Nexus 5000 switches (Cisco)

2.  vCenter Virtual Appliance (VMware)

And last, but probably the most important…..

1.  Ability to migrate templates (VMware)

Drops mic and walks off stage….

  1. Of course you already know that most of these VMware items can be done using PowerCLI 😉 I know you want a GUI version but still 🙂

  2. At VMWorld 2009, I was hearing rumors of a vSphere Client in Adobe AIR, which would then make it available on Win/Mac/Linux…the same way I use TweetDeck. Adobe AIR may not be perfect, but definitely an option. It is annoying to have to run a Windows VM solely for the purpose of using the vSphere Client.
