There are some very obvious things that can be done to reduce my emissions. Here are a few I think may work: Working from home Use public transport rather than drive Use a laptop rather than a PC Virtualise all my “testing” servers to a single unit
It’s a fairly weak list. I suppose the [...]Continue Reading This Post →
I’ve been doing more VMware work recently. The deployment I’m working on is using SAN presented disk. The storage started as 50GB LUNs, quickly grew to 100GB and now we’re deploying on 200GB LUNs, using VMFS and placing multiple VM guests on each meta volume.
Now, this presents a number of problems. Firstly, it was [...]Continue Reading This Post →

I chose ESP (Encapsulating Security Payload) as this gives full confidentiality to my data, rather than Authentication Header (AH) which provides integrity [...]Continue Reading This Post →

I’ve done some more work on iSCSI. That meant rebuilding one of my iSCSI client environments as I totalled it by trying to add another drive to the VM guest. Anyway, panic over. I’ve got the client working again and I’ve been running traces to see how easy it is to locate relevant data in [...]Continue Reading This Post →
I’ve just read Mark Lewis’s latest blog entry. Unfortunately he doesn’t seem to permit comments so I’ll just have to take issue here.
For those who haven’t read it, he talks about the recent talking up of iSCSI.
So, I have done that, so have others. He misses a huge [...]Continue Reading This Post →
