If comparing the v12n community to a religion makes sense, then using Sir Issac Newton’s Laws of Motion to explain Veeam Global “Scientist” Doug Hazelman’s guest post on the Windows Virtualization Team Blog shouldn’t be a stretch either. Hazelman, one of the VM /ETC Q2 UGH recipients, announced the following in the post R2 Veeam Too:
“While Veeam has continued to build some of the best software for data protection and management of VMware infrastructures, we realize that customers are now faced with more virtualization choices. By fully supporting Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere, Veeam can help you manage heterogeneous hypervisor deployments and clouds with the innovative solutions you’ve come to expect from Veeam. The management and R&D teams at Veeam have a long history of working with Microsoft going back to the Aelita days, and we’re all excited to be working with Microsoft again.”
Imagine your favorite Physics teacher or professor at the chalkboard in an UGLY GREEN lab coat explaining:
Newton’s Laws of Motion are:
- A body remains in motion with constant velocity until and unless an external force is applied on it.
- Force applied on a body is directly proportional to the rate of change of momentum of the body.
- Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
Now it is time to go to History class.
Things That Make you Go Hmmmm – VMware Requests Veeam Discontinue Support for Free ESXi in Veeam Backup?
“Veeam, a company that seems to have found a successful niche marketing to SMBs and remote branch office VMware deployments, has been asked to remove support of the use of one it’s popular products with free ESXi. Possibly shedding some additional light on this mystery, the press announcement mentions respect for VMware’s product strategy and Veeam’s long time status as a technology partner.”
Things That Make You Go Hmmmm – Veeam Backup Not Using Preferred Free ESXi APIs?
” … makes the point that VMware’s decision not to position free ESXi for production use could ultimately drive current technology partners, consulting partners, and customers to build SMB virtual infrastructure solutions around the competition’s hypervisors.
