VMworld 2012 in San Francisco has come and gone. VMworld EMEA in Barcelona is next week. It is a great event for technical audience; filled with numerous educational sessions, the largest solution pavilion and a lot of super awesome parties! VMworld issues call for papers each year. These are opportunities for you to secure a session to show off your innovative, unconventional or best practice methods for integrating VMware technologies. If your paper is approved, you get a speaker pass to the show for free. Remember these are not regular breakout sessions with product pitches you get as part of being a sponsor for the event; you get these because you have something valuable to share with technical savvy audience.

Recently, there were discussions in social media and blogs on using hypervisor level snapshots on virtual machines hosting business critical applications like Microsoft Exchange. Some confusion came on account of a statement from Microsoft documented here. The emphasis is mine.  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996719.aspx

“Some hypervisors include features for taking snapshots of virtual machines. Virtual machine snapshots capture the state of a virtual machine while it’s running. This feature enables you to take multiple snapshots of a virtual machine and then revert the virtual machine to any of the previous states by applying a snapshot to the virtual machine. However, virtual machine snapshots aren’t application aware, and using them can have unintended and unexpected consequences for a server...

It seems like businesses are looking at modernizing backup like it’s a trip to the dentist: too time-consuming and painful, and always costly! So they end up taking shortcuts, hoping that the cavity of data loss will never occur. But just as advances in dental techniques have taken much of the pain out of these visits, backup is finally experiencing a revolution of its own, thanks to new developments from Symantec.

Everyone knows what the problem is – it’s just too complicated. You shouldn’t have to feel like you’re performing root canal surgery in order to make sure you organization’s data is protected, and most importantly can be recovered. But that’s just how it feels when the amount of data that needs to be backed-up is growing so rapidly and as data centers grow ever more complex. The reality is that there are now so many physical and virtual systems crowding infrastructure that the average company has seven separate backup...
