VMware Career Saturday 2017 Week 18

UPDATE 2017-05-13: I’ve added individual pages (wherever my navigation currently has menu structure, currently on the left) with a weekly refreshed, complete listing of all listed positions for SEs, Sales, TAMs, and Consultants in both USA/Canada and EMEA. Those tables will have filters and sortability. My weekly posts will have new listings without the complexity of sorts and filters.

This is my weekly Saturday update of new open positions at VMware. I’m hoping this helps anyone looking to start a VMware Career! There were no new Field Sales and TAM positions posted in the US, and only a single SE and two Consulting positions posted. At readers requests, I added the listings for EMEA sales, EMEA SEs, EMEA consulting, and EMEA TAMs. I must not know anyone in Canada, LATAM, APAC, or ANZ. There’s some Bay area local positions I want to highlight and a note about what the open position on Advisory Services is all about. Continue reading VMware Career Saturday 2017 Week 18

Can you choose which disks are replicating to vCloud Air DR? I don't know.
The truth is, I just don’t know. Yet.

I was asked an interesting question last week which I’ve yet to get an answer on: Can users choose which disks are replicating to vCloud Air DR? Sometimes there are entire disks worth of data that aren’t core to the job of the workload in a DR situation. Not only could a customer potentially save money by not paying for unneeded storage, it’s operationally better to not replicate data that wouldn’t be used or missed in a DR situation. Like what? Well, installation package downloads, non-critical ISOs, data extractions which could be re-created from other replicated data, etc. In fact, if customers know this is a possibility, they might create a disk specifically for all the info that they don’t care to have replicated for DR. So is it possible?

Update: No. You have to replicate all disks associated with the guest (details at the bottom)
