New Nexus Phones On The Horizon – Current Nexus Phones On The Cheap

The new Nexus phones are expected to be revealed soon and that means you can get great deals on the existing Nexus phones.

The discounts offer up to $130 in savings, which makes purchasing the current generation Nexus phones an easy decision (for those who do not care about the latest and greatest). Let’s not forget that even though the current gen Nexus phones are about a year old, they still offer things that are hard to beat: standard Android experience, factory unlocked hardware, and good build quality for a reasonable price.

The deals are out there but B&H seems to offer the best one for the Nexus 5X. They also include some freebies like a selfie stick or screen protector.

  • B&H Nexus 5X White, 16GB for $249.99
  • B&H Nexus 5X Black, 16GB for $319.99
  • B&H Nexus 5X Black, 32GB for $269.99 ($130.00 OFF)

How To Install and Configure Dell OpenManage 8.3 (OMSA) in ESXi 6.0

I have to admit that I was pretty skeptical about installing and configuring Dell OpenManage 8.3 (OMSA) on my ESXi 6 hosts. I never really had a good enough reason to have OpenManage installed on the ESXi hosts in my backup site. After all it is a backup site and my servers were in RAID 5 and I could tolerate a degraded performance if/when something goes bad. Well…fast forward two (2) failed HDDs at the same time and here is my reason for OpenManage (OMSA). During the process of trying to recover my broken RAID 5 and save me from having to rebuild the array and lose all my data, I figured how to install OMSA on my host. It was surprisingly very simple and straight forward process.

SPOILER ALERT: It is super easy and I have the instructions for you below. Just keep in mind that I am not responsible for any system down-time or data loss that you may experience during this process. The process below worked for me and your experience may vary depending on many factors. Please make sure to backup your settings, configs and data before you begin.

  1. Download Dell OpenManage Server Administration 8.3
  2. Download and Install WinSCP if needed (free tool)
  3. Using WinSCP copy the VIB package (no need to unzip) to the ESXi host. I like to put these type of files in the /tmp directory

My OnePlus 3 Arrived – Quick Look And Camera Samples

If you do not know what OnePlus 3 is, then you have been living under a rock for the past few days.

OnePlus is a small Chinese cellphone startup company co-founded by former Oppo vice president Pete Lau. I was one of the lucky ones who received an invite back in 2014 and was able to purchase their very first phone (OnePlus One). That is right, you heard me say “invite”. When OnePlus initially launched they had an invite system. You could not simply go to a store or order their phone online. You had to receive an invite. Fast forward a couple of generations of their phones and we here we are. It is June 2016 and ling gone is the invite system. OnePlus unveiled their latest “Flagship Killer” a couple of days and I was able to order the OnePlus 3 directly from their web site just a few minutes after they started taking orders. The process was painless and the phone arrived in 2 DAYS!!!

If you want to learn more about the specs of this phone and get a more detailed review, you can just do a search on Google for OnePlus 3. I am not going to focus on what this phone is or what it can do. If you are reading this you are probably well aware of the new offering from OnePlus and you have read or watched all major on-line reviewers.

What I want to do is provide you with a few pictures and details about the phone and address some of the main concerns about this device. [Read the rest of this entry…]

    • How much cloud is too much cloud? December 6, 2016
      I'm often asked: Should all application workloads exist in the public cloud? The right answer is one that most people don't want to hear: It depends. It depends on what industry you're in. It depends on performance expectations. It depends on security requirements. The list goes on. Some enterprises will reach the point where 80 […]

    • Beware the dumb and dangerous ideas creeping into the cloud November 29, 2016
      Remember the last technology bubble? It left many investors poorer, with enterprises and technology providers scratching their heads as to what went wrong. While the investors and entrepreneurs could simply move on to the next venture, many enterprises were stuck with dead technology that cost a great deal to replace. Lesson learned? Not really.
