Starting this week I will publish a weekly Virtualization & Cloud Computing Wrap Up on viktorious.nl. In my work as a Virtualization & Cloud Computing consultant I am always looking for the latest information on these topics. Every week I find and read a lot of good articles, blogposts and forum threads. Sometimes I put to them on twitter, but why not archive the links to these articles on my blog? By sharing these articles, the articles become more visible to the community and a great archive is created on this blog.
So, let’s kick off with the first edition of the weekly wrap up, called #36 because it’s week 36 :).
Important subject this week in the Virtualization & Cloud Computing blogosphere is the whole “run Oracle on vSphere licensing discussion”. This discussion was initiated again during VMworld 2012. Various bloggers reported about this discussion and some particles were published on this site as well:

This week I faced some iSCSI performance problems and ran into this great KB article about degraded iSCSI performance. The part about delayed ACK is particulary interesting. Also don’t forget the superb multi vendor post on iSCSI which contains very good information on iSCSI configuration/performance on VMware vSphere:
And…don’t forget the VMworld Panoramas to get something of the atmosphere at VMworld. Did you miss VMworld? Catch up by attending the VMworld webinar this monday (the webinar is in Dutch):
That’s it for this week and the first edition of the Weekly Wrap Up. Hope to see you next week!
