As Oracle Goes Aggro On EMC And VMware VMware Cozies Up To Oracle's Rival SAP 

Oracle on Wednesday announced what it calls the "Datacenter of the Future." And by that it means a bunch of new hardware and software that takes on giants EMC, Cisco, and VMware.

Specifically, Oracle announced three new products:
  • Oracle's new Virtual Compute Appliance X5, which competes with the Cisco/EMC/VMware partnership product known as Cisco Unified Compute System
  • Oracle FS1 Series Flash Storage System, which goes head-to-head with EMC, and...
  • The sixth generation of its Oracle Exadata Database Machine X5, a special server designed to host Oracle's flagship database software.
These systems include, at no extra cost, Oracle's competitor to VMware, called Oracle VM.

In his classic trash-talking, Oracle founder Larry Ellison CTO and specifically crashed EMC (VMware's parent company) during the presentation, stating: "Our listing price is less than half of their sale prices." Then he laughed and made clear. "We will negotiate price and deduct" even more.

In other words, Oracle intends to start a price war with former EMC.

Interestingly, the launch of these products news comes shortly after we heard some interesting news on VMware. The company is upgrading its Oracle financial software to a new provider: SAP.

JMP Securities analyst Pat Walravens said that VMware is booting software ERP installation of Oracle and SAP ERP software in place.

"Our due diligence suggests that VMware (VMW, MO, $ 119 PT) plans to migrate from Oracle (ORCL, MP) ERP SAP ERP as part of a business transformation program of thousands of years," he writes in a research note.

Companies do not change their financial software vendors like it or not. It's a big decision involved and it takes months and much effort to change.

The update has been going on for months, sources close to VMware tell us. But they also say that there was revenge in retaliation to the increasingly aggressive competition from Oracle with VMware and EMC father.

In fact, appears to be part of a makeover that VMware is doing for its own internal IT system and processes for billing customers.

However, knowing how hotly Oracle and SAP compete - the two are always taking public pot shots at each other - we are confident that SAP has a customer win a little more when the Oracle client is stolen.

VMware Certifications Set to Expire Next March

If you are a VMware Certified Professional (VCP), you have only a couple of months to re-certify and maintain their current status. Spending, could have implications for you - and your company.
This warning came across a blog post of Team VMware Partner Network. The blog said the recertification policy changed last spring, and not risk losing recertify the program status for their companies.

Premier Partner, notes the blog, are required to have at least four current PCVs in developed countries, and two countries in the developing world, to maintain their status. Enterprise Partners need half of these figures: two PCVs present for developed countries and another for the countries in the developing world.

The deadline for recertification, it is not clear in the blog, is 10 March 2015. This is according to the main site of VMware certification.

Recertification listed three ways: Upgrading an existing certification; gaining a new certification track of different solution; or go VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP) or implement VMware Certified Expert (VCIX) certification, instead of remaining at the level of VCP.

To encourage the efforts of recertification, VMware offers a discount of 25 percent on each VCP exam taken at the end of this year; those who cannot do that can recertify in Exchange Partner conference of the company in 2015, held the next 3-5 February in San Francisco.

Until the changes last year, VMware was unusual among the IT companies do not require certification holders to return to their credentials. Explaining his position certification, VMware, said that "if your skills are not current, certified loses value. The technical and business communities expect VMware Certified Professionals are updated on the latest technologies and able to deploy VMware products with the highest level skill ".

Now requires recertification every two years, so that all the VCP certifications earned before March 10, 2013 are subject to expiration. Certifications followed two years from the date of certification to recertify.

Missing the deadline for re-certification means that the VCP certification will be revoked, eliminating access to the portal VCP. In addition, the certification logo or representing themselves as certified VMware will be denied using. VMware said in his recertification FAQ no grace period after certification revoked.

How to upgrade VMware Fusion 6 to 7

Last month, realizing the OS X Yosemite upgrade was coming, I began worrying how well existing software on my Mac would work with the new release. I was particularly concerned that a meticulously configured Windows 8.1 Professional VMware Fusion virtual machine (VM) might prove incompatible or suffer performance glitches as a result of the upgrade. Fortunately, VMware had an upgrade of its own ready: Fusion 7.

VMware Fusion 7

In addition to matching Yosemite's refreshed, cleaner interface, VMware Fusion 7 introduces speed improvements, a revised hardware support platform (version 11), and enhanced graphics support and performance. Users of Fusion 5.x, 5.x Pro, 6.x, and 6.x Pro should explore upgrading, especially as the upgrade license costs only $49.99 (USD).

Fusion 7's hardware requirements prove reasonable. The platform works with any Intel-powered Mac possessing a 64-bit Intel Core 2 Duo, Xeon, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 or better CPU, OS X 10.8 or later, 2 GB of RAM (although I recommend a minimum of 4 GB), and 750 MB of free disk space (although I recommend 25 GB if you're going to load Windows and plan to actually load applications and data within the VM).

Upgrading to Fusion 7

Update from the merger of 6 Fusion 7 is a painless process. First you need to buy the site from VMware a license key. The next step is to download the fusion 7. The file is about 357 MB.
Once the download is completed, double-click the .dmg file. The installer will open VMware Fusion. Double-click the icon that appears to install the VMware Fusion (need to confirm an application downloaded from the Internet is valid and you want to install, click the Open button shown).
So, you will be prompted to enter a username / password with administrative rights. VMware Fusion 7, then install and launch it.

When the initial setup is complete, you will see the Log screen in VMware Fusion. Insert the key in VMware Fusion 7 is received. Fusion 7 door. The software automatically loads my existing Windows VM 8.1 Professional.

My Windows 8.1 Professional was used VM hardware version 7 10. VMware Fusion recommend that you upgrade the hardware version 11, which I did by going to Virtual Machine Configuration | | Compatibility and click the Update button. The new versions of hardware offer a myriad range of new features, including improved 3D graphics performance improvements. Visit the website for more information on the VMware hardware versions.

In addition to opening faster than VMware Fusion 7, Windows requires faster. Best of all, my carefully configure Windows 8.1 professional installation, pre-loaded within 6 Fusion, it works as safe as before, with no problems. When it comes to running virtual machines, which is the ultimate goal.

Did you upgrade to VMware Fusion 7? If so, it's not perfect - or if you have trouble? If you have not updated, what is to stop? Let us know in the discussion below.

EMC Should Focus on VMware Rather than VCE Analyst Says did not give an update on how you plan to increase shareholder value by announcing the third quarter earnings Wednesday, with much of the focus, rather than absorbing their VCE joint venture with EMC Cisco. One analyst says that may be a mistake, and that something should be said about VMware (NYSE: VMW).

"We believe that some investors were hoping for an update around the company's efforts to increase shareholder value in the wake of mounting pressure from investors given recent announcements disruption (eg HPQ / SYMCO / eBay), as the Street wants a resolution property on the strategic situation as soon as possible in our view, "Daniel Ives of FBR Capital Markets wrote in a brief to investors.

While Ives said he believes HOPKINTON based EMC (NYSE: EMC) is "well positioned" to benefit from the exchange of large companies to the cloud, big data and adoption data center defined by software, the company's shares were suspended, with a range 52-week dollar 23.15- $ 30.18. Stock price of EMC closed up less than 1 percent on Wednesday in 27.37 dollars. "Investors remain on the strategies of the company focusing on laser to increase shareholder value," wrote Ives.

"Instead of worrying about the VCE, we expect the management team and Directors of EMC are evaluating the structure of property law / the potential spin-off of VMware, as this issue remains at the epicenter of the frustration of investors and activism around EMC history, "he wrote.

During the earnings call Wednesday EMC Keith Bachman of BMO Capital Markets also put the question to EMC CEO Joe Tucci: "His stock has underperformed the S & P over a number of periods of measurement, one, three and five years. As at least as measured against a metric, the stock price, its strategy was not rewarding shareholders. Recognizes that shareholders have spoken, but it seems to want to engage more of the same strategy. And so, the broader issue is that is willing to consider the most significant changes in your strategy? "

Tucci's response: "Our management and board is very focused on increasing shareholder value. [But] we are in a good business ... We have great technology assets. We have a leadership team very talented and a great workforce and yes, we are undervalued and that is why we are doing and make sure that we are much focused on increasing shareholder value. "

The pressure to make a move to virtualization company VMware-EMC, which owns the majority of the is mainly coming from a shareholder activist, Elliott Management in New York. The company says that a spinoff VMware, as well as other changes could boost the stock price of EMC.

VCE, however, is currently seeing a rate of execution 2 billion dollars annually for the recipe. VCE provides technology called "convergence of ICT", which aims to simplify the infrastructure of the data center in the era of cloud computing. EMC VCE plan to use to help deliver their "hybrid cloud"-products that combine on-site resources with cloud-based computing for large companies. "We think that this will be an important growth driver for EMC," said CEO Joe Tucci, during the company's earnings call Wednesday.

VMware Fusion for Mac Now Connects to Virtual Machines in Data Centers

VMware today released the seventh version of the merger, its virtualization software for Mac, with a new feature that allows virtual machines that are running the user access to remote data centers.

The function is available in VMware Fusion 7 Pro, which takes place at developers and other professionals who have to do more than just run operating systems other than Mac OS X.

Fusion Pro 7 is scheduled to be available for download starting today for $ 150 A basic version of the Fusion 7 Advanced Features missing, but allows users to run other operating systems on OS X Windows and costs $ 70. When Fusion 6 was released to the United Nations year ago, the prices were $ 60 and $ 130, respectively.

If you own FUSION 5 or 6, the United Nations will be updated July 1 Cost $ 50 for basic and $ 80 for the Pro edition. Also, anyone BUY Fusion 6 August or January then you can upgrade to version 7 a pity Additional load.

Although much more expensive than the basic version, the fusion Taken Pro has more resemblance to the workstation, desktop virtualization software VMware to premium Windows and Linux. Linked clones, workstation performance in which multiple copies of a Virtual Machine know how to create sin replay the whole thing, Pro street in the merger last year. The new virtual machines remotely access also is taken from the workstation.

"In Fusion 6 and earlier versions, you can run virtually any operating system in a Virtual Machine Virtual Machine but it had to be running on your Mac," said product manager Simon Bennett VMware Ars. "With Fusion 7, you can connect an A Virtual Machine running elsewhere. Mare Being on your Workstation computer desktop, which may be running in your data center [server virtualization software] vSphere or even use our ESXi server product free and you can use it as if it were running locally., which is really good if you care about battery life, because everything functioning hypervisor United Nations Environmental, EL operating system and applications, they will not pay the price on your battery life and you can also use virtual machines larger than you would on a laptop Mac way. "

This is useful for developers who need to log on many virtual machines, or software demonstrations, he said. The function is usually used as a red mare locally or over the Internet with a VPN, Bennett said. In addition to accessing UN sin necesidad store virtual machines on a Mac, the system will allow users to upload or download to and from virtual machines vSphere and Workstation.

Dual GPU optimization is another new feature available for Fusion 7 Pro, but not the fusion of the base. "For the MacBook Pro with a discrete GPU and the integrated GPU A, Fusion 7 Pro allows users to choose which GPU to use 3D applications," VMware said in a press release. "Selecting the integrated GPU will result in longer battery life, while selecting the GPU will offer the best performance for 3D applications Virtual Machine."

New Features for the professional and non-professional versions include design changes to match OS X Yosemite, optimization of Latter-Mac hardware, greater energy efficiency and better support for Retina Display in Unity mode. As Parallels Coherence mode, the unit separates applications VMware Windows of the car window to make them look as if this is Virtual Mac applications.

Fusion 7 virtual machines can still be huge, but did not get any more, still limited to 16 virtual CPUs, virtual Clubs 8 GB, and 64 GB of memory. But UN Hay new twist: "The UN Di graphics-intensive applications can give further impetus by assigning up to 2GB of video memory to the Virtual Machine" VMware said. Previously, the season limit of 128 MB.

VMware said second optimizations for Intel processors produce up to 43 percent better performance "on CPU-intensive operations, such as multimedia, encryption, and decryption." UN Fusion 7 will use 42 percent less energy than fusion 6, VMware supports.

VMware Parallels rival Lanzo version 10 of its virtualization product for Mac last month. Parallels cobra 80 dollars for the basic version and about $ 100 ENTRY before saving volume for the Enterprise editions.
