Compellent Disk Management with PowerShell: Windows Server 2008 Disks

I was provisioning some Compellent storage today for a a series of tests that I am working on that required 62 volumes per server on two different servers.  These volumes are multi-pathed and although using the Compellent Storage Center GUI is easy and straightforward, completing this process would take a long time doing by hand and seemed fit to be automated using the Compellent Storage Center Command Set for Windows PowerShell. read more...

Windows 2008 Hyper-V Resource Kit Now Available

On June 10, Microsoft Press published the new “Windows 2008 Hyper-V Resource Kit” by Robert Larson and Janique Carbone.

For the past year, Shane Burton a fellow Microsoft Product Specialist here at Compellent, and myself have been working with Robert and Janique on this project and providing content, particularly “Notes from the Field” for the book, while our Compellent Marketing Alliance partner, John Porterfield kept us in line.

Compellent is a project sponsor at the Microsoft Partner Solution Center and provided Robert and Janique access to a Compellent Storage Center for testing storage-related scenarios that are included in the book. Compellent users will recognize a lot of the screenshots which were taken directly from the Storage Center Manager. read more...

The Case of the Missing Interview

Even though we had a number of technical difficulties, I really enjoyed the interview with Jon and Hal over at the Powerscripting Podcast.  I was excited to listen to the playback to the interview which should’ve been available a few days after we recorded the live show, but the interview went missing from what I hear, so Episode 54 was MIA.  Our people are working on seeing if we can reschedule the interview for another show to take another run at it.

Powerscripting Podcast

I will be the guest for an interview on the Powerscripting Podcast, a Powershell podcast designed to help people learn Windows PowerShell.

I will be on to discuss the Compellent Command Set for Windows PowerShell, our free offering for customers who want the ability to manage their Compellent Storage Center via script, or automate administration processes, a lot of which I will talk about in the interview.

This is a live show and the hosts will take questions during the broadcast, So, tune in Thursday night (January 8) at 9 AM EST (8 PM CST)! read more...
