This article describes how to discover the ESX version when we have only access to the VM guest. When troubleshooting issues, I sometimes need to know the ESX version when my VM’s are running, but in the classic scenario where we don’t have any type of privileges, it is pretty hard to get that information. …

SAP and SUSE share along history of successful partnership. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) has exclusively been the base operating system for SAP HANA for quite some time and the market values this.

This entry is part 10 of 11 in the series LJDT - Linux Just Does That

Have you ever wanted to resize a disk in a VM and wondered how insanely painful that would be? After all, from the old days of platter-based spinning drives in computers (sorry to those of you still living in those days), before SANs with resizable LUNs, file-backed VMs, and other marvels of recent times, disks didn’t magically resize themselves unless it was to get smaller because they were breaking/broken. As a result, OS’s have learned to handle bad sectors by avoiding them, but growing the current, running disk just seems eerie to me every time I want to do it. Apparently I’m old.

I must say that I respectfully disagree with VMware’s CEO, Pat Gelsinger on whether OpenStack will catch on in the enterprise. While he believes it won’t get traction in the near future, I believe quite the contrary and I’ll try to outline a few of the reasons. First and foremost, OpenStack is moving rapidly to …

When one thinks of market leaders in a space, it often comes down to economics or units shipped. While important, it does not always tell the full story. Market leadership can (and in my opinion should) be defined in terms of thought leadership and actions.  This definitely should be the case in the Linux space …
