Better together: #vSphere 7 and #Horizon 7.12 with #Nvidia vGPUs in high end #vdi environments

horizon

Current situations accelerate the demand for virtual desktops and a proper virtual desktop infrastructure. I am working for years in the field of the software-defined datacenter and virtual desktops delivered via VMware Horizon. While standard office virtual desktops have become something like a commodity, the usage of hardware graphics accelerated workload and high-end demand is still kind of ‘newer’ and not as mature as the non-gpu workload.

Was haben Vorstandsassistenten, CAD-Zeichner, Architekten und Rechtsanwälte gemeinsam?

horizon

Was haben Vorstandsassistenten, CAD-Zeichner, Architekten und Rechtsanwälte gemeinsam? In Zeiten wie diesen so einiges: sie sitzen vermutlich beruflich alle zuhause. Warum interessiert uns von der comdivison das? Weil wir für diese Situation seit über 20 Jahren bestens gerüstet sind und auch viele unserer Kunden auf genau diese Arbeitssituation (wenn auch meist aus anderem Grund) vorbereitet haben.

euc

With the EUC perspective I would like to start a new Blog series where I occasionally write about my findings and my perspective in the End-User-Computing area. This time – my first edition – will of course include the COVID-19 epidemy and its effect on the EUC business.

After several weeks of the COVID-19 outbreak, I like to categorize the business in three different categories...

Unlocking UniFi AC-Pro from the ceiling Mount

ubiquiti

not directly related to VMware, but since more and more are using UniFi Equipment in the home lab, I would like to share this with you.

I was forced to renew my “not so nice looking" LAN Socket for my UniFi AC-PRO ceiling mounted. So the new socket was not really a big task, but I also need to change the LAN cable from the socket to my Access Point. And now the fun begins. I tried to release the AC-PRO from the ceiling mount. After I few tries I figured out - no chance - I will not be able to remove the AP from the mount.

VMware Partner Connect - Ready, set, go - comdivision is now a principal partner

partner

VMware picked an interesting day to launch its long awaited partner program, Partner Connect, the 29th of February, approx. 1 month after financial year switch. We have been involved in the design of this program as have many other partners over the last 1+ years. This program has been designed. It was my pleasure to work with the EMEA but also VMware HQs team to design this new program and provide feedback.


First and foremost, comdivision holds the highest rank (principal partner) in nearly all categories and we aim to close those missing (and those not even yet public) within this year. We continue to thrive to be under the top leading partners in the EMEA territory. As we were second with 4 MSCs, first with 5 MSCs, first in DE with VMC on AWS, only partner in DE with 2 VCDXs etc. etc.

Feedback providers - What I observed and how to improve...

feedback

Over the past couple of years I had to attend several conferences, round tables and advisory sessions. The number is increasing, which also requires me more often to pick and choose. What I found very surprising is the lack of clear feedback given by many people.

Truly I honor every time an analyst, community or vendor invites me to share my thought, provide feedback or influence roadmap direction. Out of hundred/thousands I seem to provide valuable input and while the number of these engagements is growing I have identified a constant group of people in the room, I even started a game for myself to note down on introduction which categorizes each one to help me focus on the value providers.
