The recent 8.x versions have introduced far simpler upgrades - no more of this step by step CLI stuff, it's now give it the new version and click go, pretty much!

Sooo, they've made a crappy NetApp?
Re: Windows 10
Well we'd like it for VXLAN and microsegmentation..
Follow William Lams (slowly appearing) guide on Photon Controller here: http://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2016/04/test-driving-vmware-photon-controller-part-1-installation.html
Based on the previous version, but so far gives a nice overview of it and how it works.
Hold onto your buttz for the rumoured 6.5 later this year then. The surveys and murmurings are hinting at them rewriting it right now exactly like this fling-gone-gold..
Re: I keep saying ...
Because it's the devil you know..
The braver ones are venturing out to Veeam and the likes, but everyone else is clinging on!
Re: Windows 10
Why would a server OS upgrade to a desktop OS?
Re: NetApp needs to do something
What caveats are you aware of? We've got 2x AFF arrays and haven't come across any..
> if the site holding personal data can be hacked then clearly they have not met the requirement of the act
It's not if the site can be hacked - any site can be. The question is whether they took appropriate measures to secure the data that they hold. Keeping bank/card details in clear text or even unsalted isn't particularly clever in this day and age..
Re: What about the banks?
If you're a bank and I hand you some details and an amount I want, how do you know if I'm Fraudsters Inc. or the local corner shop?
More than all flash?
You may want to look at what offers NetApp have on currently with their AFF's. Depending on how much you squeeze, you may actually get it cheaper than a hybrid array..
That said, love Tintri :)
Re: Netapp pricing
That page says no such thing - it gives examples for hyperv and doesn't days the list is exclusive. The only thing MS say for Exchange is that it's not supported on an NFS data store, for unspecified reasons..
> Serve those same files on a Server 2012 R2 system with default settings on hardware three times as powerful and watch the whole thing grind to an halt.
Wait, what? Why? Sources?
I thought Veeam SureBackup was designed to check the backup can be restored by starting it up?
XenApp users: Don't feel left out?
Why, because we get next to nothing? Why would we feel left out? Our product still isnt supported on server 2012 and we've now got a bastardised web interface to use. Oh, but we can share out opengl apps now! Huzzah! Citrix Receiver so easy to install users can do it themselves! Never mind that it used to be able to update *itself* back in the PSx days. But you can do it clientless now! Yeah great, you could before with the Java client which ran automatically.
The old trick of put something in, take it out in the next release, then put a crappy version back in on the next release again. It still feels like they're in the process of changing everything around but not letting us in on the big picture of where everything is supposed to sit. Come on Citrix, I'm getting fed up of this now..
About damn time
We were looking to purchase 3PAR, but they couldn't tell us anything about future products, I.E. what they were going to do about the fact FC disks are stopping production shortly. Even with an NDA! Bought from another vendor in the end :(
It's a shame because I still think the 3PAR premise is awesome, way better than the system we bought in the end.
If even half of that comes true, Server8 will be an awesome release!
