In May 2014 I recorded a short video with Alastair Cooke (@DemitasseNZ) for his new site notes4engineers.com (@N4Engineers). The idea behind the site is to capture a video series that sheds light on dark coreners of the IT infrastructure world. In ten to fifteen minute bites you can learn from people who build and operate infrastructure. Lets take a deeper look at what I was up to and the secrets I revealed on film for the first time.
I was lucky to be invited by Alastair to talk about the recent work I’d been doing on Oracle RAC Monster VM vMotion on the Nutanix platform. You can view the notes for engineers page here. You can find out in 15 minutes what I’ve been up to and where you can get further information. Here is the video on Monster VM vMotion with Oracle RAC on Nutanix. Once you’ve gone through the video you can download the Nutanix Tech Note: Virtualizing Oracle Databases on Web Scale Infrastructure.
I think Notes 4 Engineers is a great idea and I hope the community gets behind Alastair with this. If you are a vendor and would like to see your technology highlighted and the technology demonstrated, then I suggest you get in touch with Alastair and find out more about this. Hopefully Alastair will be able to grow this through sponsorship so he can bring Notes 4 Engineers to an event near you. As always your feedback is appreciated.
