Check out Odyssey

After having great fun doing the Odyssey challenges at both VMWorld US & Europe this year, they have now been released to the wild.


Check out the official article about the European event here

All the challenges are 30 minutes but the aim is to complete them as quickly as possible, many teams at VMworld completed them way faster.

It’s great to see that they are now available for everybody, go give them a try.

Huge thanks to all at HOL for this great innovation.

You thought you could rest!

A quick reminder that following the end of support for ESXi 5.5 last year, time moves on end of support for ESXi 6.0 is March 12th 2020.

Now that might be ages away for most of you but this is a horrible date for me. The company I work for operates on a calendar year basis and as such this date falls within  year end reporting, which for me means no major changes allowed in the IT estate.

Due to festive change freezes in December I have to upgrade any ESXi 6.0 hosts by 30th November 2019. It’s probably also worth mentioning that ESXi 6.5 & 6.7 go end of support 15th November 2021, at least that gives me a rest for two years!

I have four months, better start planning now.
