comment Windows 2008 R2 AD servers on fanless flash based systems
Update - I've now deployed four of these with another 11 to go. Very happy with this choice. The fanless stuff looked cool, but the cost of the microservers was so low it was hard to argue with.

comment Measuring network latency
Requests for recommendations of products are off topic, but saying what tool to use, particularly generic ones, surely is on topic, else most of the content here will have to go.

comment Multiple-NIC vMotion in vSphere 5 with separate core switches
Oh yes - it is a lesson learnt but not a lesson easy to put into practice. Still stuck with the two cores - next hardware refresh will be the first opportunity to make a change.

comment Multiple-NIC vMotion in vSphere 5 with separate core switches
I've been here too - and I am beginning to wonder whether having two sets of stacked switches for use with VMware is a good idea (or at all). I've seen very little extra value from having this extra level of redundancy but it has been an extra complexity challenging every networking project. If I were doing all this again, I'd just stack all my switches into one. The failure of a whole stack seems well within our SLAs and we can get redundant hardware and extra throughput within a single stack.
