I’ll be taking a free web-cast on the EMC VNX Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) today (Thursday 11th August 2011) in which I will demonstrate how to quickly and easily get the EMC VNX VSA up and running in your own work or home VMware vSphere lab environment. For good measure I’ll also be covering, and demonstrating, how to install and use the EMC Virtual Storage Integrator (VSI) Unified plug-in for VMware vCenter. It’s going to be a full 60 minutes though I will keep it fast paced to ensure we cover all the main things you need to know about the VNX and VNX VSA to get you up and running. I should point out that both the VNX VSA and VSI plugin are both free to download and use though I must highlight that the VNX VSA isn’t supported or to be used for production use. It is only suited to small vSphere lab environments or for demonstration purposes.
Running a VSA offers a number of benefits to those who don’t want or have the budget for running a physical SAN and/or NAS device in their lab and also for those of you wanting all important hands-on time with running a VNX (albeit a virtual version) for educational purposes.
This VNX VSA webex session will appeal to those of you who like to run their own VMware vSphere lab or to existing or potential EMC VNX customers wanting to kick the tyres on the virtualized version of the VNX unified storage platform.
Later Viewing: If you can’t make it along, don’t worry as a recording will be made available later.
