Fantastic – Altaro Hyper-V Backup for Windows 2012 – because Andy! says so!

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Just a quick blog, about this fantastic Backup Software, now with Beta software you always expect some issue, does not work, you’ll spend many hours trying to get it to operate.

But I was so impressed within 120 seconds, from installation, it had installed, detected I was using Cluster Hyper-V 2012, installed two agents onto the Hyper-V Nodes in the Cluster, and started to Backup to a NAS with no issues!

and this is BETA! I cannot wait for the full version and release!

Thumbs up Guys!, Well Done, puts many other software houses to shame, that have Hyper-V Backup Applications, do I have to name them!?

Building End – User Computing Solutions with VMware View

Friday, August 3rd, 2012


Barry Coombs and Mike Laverick’s new book Building End – User Computing Solutions with VMware View has just been published. It’s available here as an eBook.

I was fortunate enough as one of the VMware vExperts in the Community to proof read the book before publication. You can see my name in print on Page 6!

Needless to say, it’s an excellent book, and should be on all VMware View Admin Bookshelves!
