A great guide to VCB set up

From VIops:
Created on: Mar 11, 2009 12:50 PM by Dave Convery, VMware vExpert

Introduction

Instead of installing backup agents in all of our guests and backing up over the LAN, we prefer to use VCB with our chosen backup provider in LAN-free mode.
VMware Consolidated Backup enables the LAN-free operation by providing access to the VMDKs and quiescing guest disk operations to provide a clean backup, but you still need backup software to read the mounted disk and back it up.
This document explains how to set up and use VCB with any backup software, including those that do not have an integration kit provided by VMware.

Administering Vmware from your mobile phone

From VMTN blog: March 20, 2009
Introducing VMware vCenter Mobile Access (vCMA).
vCMA allows you to monitor and manage VMware Infrastructure from your mobile phone with an interface that is optimized for such devices.

Specifically, it allows you to:

  • Search for virtual machines in your data center
  • Migrate virtual machines from one host to another using vMotion
  • Execute recovery plans using VMware Site Recovery Manager
  • Access Scheduled Tasks, Alarms and Events
  • And much more...


Here's the video (thanks bkolin)
