Regulars: Thank you for stopping by but just as a heads up, this post is not VMware virtualization related. After a bit of hardware trouble from the local store, my replacement flight sim rig is up and running Lockheed Martin Prepar3D 4.3. I'm trying to shake the rust off after not having flown a leg […]

Google signs up PlayStation VR engineer Richard Marks

Image
The head of Sony's virtual reality efforts has left the company after 19 years and moved to another California-based tech giant: Google. Richard Marks headed Sony's Magic Lab, the group behind the PlayStation VR headset, and served as the company's voice when it came to its work in virtual reality. Google told VentureBeat that Marks is now part of its Advanced Technology and Projects group (ATAP), which d evelops experimental projects like X does, but within a shorter span of time. Some of its more popular undertakings are Google's depth-sending tech Project Tango and its modular phone initiative Project Ara. His LinkedIn profile confirms the move, but it's unclear what his position within ATAP is and what he'll be working on. Google has been snapping up game industry veterans over the past few months, though, including former Xbox and PlayStation exec Phil Harrison. Shortly after Harrison joined Google, a report came out that the company is working on a vide…

Telco Operations in an NFV World: eBook

Image
Over the past year, I have written about and demonstrated the operational intelligence framework within VMware vCloud NFV. The intent was to help communication service providers (CSPs) anticipate and mitigate challenges associated with deploying and operationalizing NFV based services. While NFV environments provide a new level of flexibility and service agility, dealing with new layers […]The post Telco Operations in an NFV World: eBook appeared first on VMware Telco NFV Blog.

PowerCLI で不要 VM を一括削除してみる。

今回は、ラボ環境などで定期的に不要 VM を一括削除するための工夫についてです。あらかじめ 削除禁止 VM のリスト ファイルを用意しておき、そこに記載されていない VM を PowerCLI で一括削除してみます。今回の PowerCLI 10.1 を利用しています。あらかじめ vCenter に接続しておきます。PowerCLI> Connect-VIServer <vCenter アドレス>まず、削除したくない VM のリストファイルを作成しておきます。PowerCLI> cat .VM-List_HomeLab-Infra.txtinfra-backup-01infra-dns-01infra-dns-02infra-jbox-02infra-ldap-02sinfra-nsxctl-01-NSX-controller-1infra-nsxdlr-01-0infra-nsxesg-01-0infra-nsxmgr-01infra-pxe-01infra-repo-01infra-sddc-01infra-vrli-01infra-vrni-01infra-vrni-proxy-01infra-vrops-01ol75-min-01このリストファイルは、下記のように vCenter 実機の情報からベースとなる作成しておくと間違いが少ないかなと思います。PowerCLI> Get-VM | Sort-Object Name | %{$_.Name} | Out-File -Encoding utf8 -FilePath .VM-List_HomeLab-Infra.txt今回は、下記のようなスクリプトを作成しました。cleanup_list_vm.ps1 · GitHub# Cleanup VMs# Usage:#   PowerCLI> ./cleanup_list_vm.ps1 $vm_list_file = $args[0]if($vm_list_file.Length -lt 1){"リストを指定して下さい。"; exit}if((Test-Path $vm_list_file) -ne $true){"リストが見つかりません。"; exit}$vm_name_list = gc $vm_…

How to Fix VSAN Cluster Partition in Nested VSAN LAB

Nested ESXi and nested vSphere labs are more flexible to test the product features without having much investment for labs. It helps us to save some hardware costs while setting up the virtualized lab.

Samsung says the Galaxy S9 isn’t selling very well

Image
Samsung Electronics' quarterly earnings are in, and as ever they're right in line with guidance, meaning that the company's run of record profits is at an end. Samsung made an operating profit of 14.87 trillion won on sales of 58.4 trillion won; revenue was down 4 percent year on year.According to Samsung, the drop in revenue can be put down to "softer sales of smartphones and display panels." The company's most important phone of the year, the Galaxy S9, went on sale at the end of the previous quarter, but Samsung describes its performance as "slow." Earlier this month analysts predicted that it would be the worst-selling Galaxy S flagship phone since 2012's Galaxy S3.Samsung's display business also had a rough quarter, with "weak...Continue reading…

Astronomy Picture of the Day: Layers of the South Pole of Mars

Image
Layers of the South Pole of Mars
What lies beneath the layered south pole of Mars? A recent measurement with ground-penetrating radar from ESA's Mars Express satellite has detected a bright reflection layer consistent with an underground lake of salty water. The reflection comes from about 1.5-km down but covers an area 200-km across. Liquid water evaporates quickly from the surface of Mars, but a briny confined lake, such as implied by the radar reflection, could last much longer and be a candidate to host life such as microbes. Pictured, an infrared, green, and blue image of the south pole of Mars taken by Mars Express in 2012 shows a complex mixture of layers of dirt, frozen carbon dioxide, and frozen water.

Samsung looks to foldable OLEDs as phone sales slow down

Image
As expected, Samsung's Q2 2018 earnings report shows that operating profit is still up from last year and net profit for the same periods came in 0.1 percent lower as growth is slowing. While its memory chip and processor businesses remain strong, the premium smartphone market is "sluggish" and has more competition, so it's introducing the new Galaxy Note slightly earlier this year to expand sales.The new Note 9 will be revealed on August 9th, and could show us what Samsung has planned for its "unbreakable" flexible OLED technology. Samsung said it expected sales of flexible OLED to rebound in the second half, and said "the Company will incorporate more value-added features into panels and reinforce its competencies in new applications such as foldable displays" like the YOUM prototypes it showed off a few years ago or the device already rumored for launch in 2019.Source: Samsung

Google Calendar makes it easier to reschedule a meeting

Image
We've all been unable to make it to appointments for one reason or another, so Google Calendar has added an option which could make finding a new meeting time a cinch. When you're invited to an event, instead of responding with yes, no or maybe, you can propose a new time if the current one doesn't work for you.You might not need to annoy everyone with a "can't make it, when else are you all free?" message in Slack or email either. As long as others let you view their calendars, you'll be able to see when everyone else is free in a side-by-side view so you can find a time that works for your entire team. You can send your proposed new time to the organizer along with a note, and they can accept your suggestion (or not, it's up to them).This function is available across G Suite domains and in Microsoft Exchange, but it won't work for events with more than 200 guests or all-day get-togethers. You can use the feature on the web now, and on mobile sta…

Logitech is making a big purchase to secure a foothold in high-end audio recording. Tonight, the company announced that it's acquiring Blue Microphones for $117 million.

"For Logitech, this is a new space," the company wrote in its blog post announcing the deal. "But, at the same time, it's not at all. Gamers are already using our Logitech G webcams to stream. People are video calling with friends and family thanks to Logitech every...Continue reading…

Blue Microphones sells to Logitech for $117 million

Image
As the market for equipment needed by podcasters, streamers and other content creators grows, Blue Microphones has become a trusted and well-known name. Now Logitech has stepped in to acquire the company for about $117 million in cash. Both companies make headsets, but adding the microphones to Logitech's set of cameras is a natural fit.Said Blue CEO John Maier: "So here's the deal: all of us here at Blue will keep creating cool stuff for professional musicians, gamers, podcasters, YouTubers, and streamers; Logitech will help us conquer the world. It's a great partnership full of possibilities." As usual, the promises are that everything will be good, better and best, but we will have to wait and see if all of the products involved continue to maintain the quality customers (and listeners/viewers) have become accustomer to.Source: Logitech, Blue

Harley-Davidson plans to debut its electric motorcycle in 2019

Image
The Harley-Davidson electric motorcycle has been a long time coming. First announced as Project LiveWire back in 2014, the bike has gone through some design changes as well as becoming only one of the electric bikes the company plans to release over the next few years. Finally, though, it looks as if the LiveWire will be available next year.The news comes as part of Harley-Davidson's self-described accelerated strategy to inspire the next generation of bikers with its products. The LiveWire is being hailed as "the first in a broad, no-clutch 'twist and go' portfolio of electric two-wheelers designed to establish the company as the leader in the electrification of the sport," wrote the company in a press release. The image in the release is only a prototype and has the typical disclaimers saying that it's not for sale yet, might have different features when produced and may not be available in every market. In addition, there are two more electric models — a l…
