VMware Fusion v7 – Unable to connect to the MKS:Login

VMware Fusion v7 – Unable to connect to the MKS:Login

Following the release last week of VMware Fusion v7 I’ve been looking into some of the new features (as well as appreciating the enhanced performance – Shared Folders on my Mac now runs like a rocket ). My favourite by far is the new ‘Connect to Server’ feature: It provides a very quick and easy way to get hold of VMs without needing to fire up the C# or web client – marvellous. Anyway, I happened to notice in...

Nutanix SKO 2015 – my thoughts

Nutanix SKO 2015 – my thoughts

Attending my first Nutanix Sales Kick-Off event in Las Vegas this week I’ve come away quite exhausted. To be clear, it’s not because of the late nights or the beer – really The quantity and quality of sessions along with the content at times was an information overload, especially for me being a ‘newbie’. There are many things I’d be keen to share with you but at the moment much of this is...

An afternoon with PernixData’s CTO

An afternoon with PernixData’s CTO

Before I begin brain dumping my thoughts from yesterday I’d like to take a moment not only to thank Satyam Vaghani (PernixData CTO & Co-Founder) but also to Jane. Much like yourselves I receive invites to meetings, ‘free’ events, conferences, WebEx demos, etc… most days of the week but there seems little sincerity with these. So what’s the point? There’s too many other things to be doing and quite frankly...
