The perfect nested virtualization-based demo LAB: adding Template VMs (and vSAN)

Recently, I have installed several template virtual machines in my lab. My primary objective is to automate large-scale migrations to the AWS Cloud using the AWS CloudEndure Migration Factory Solution. The secondary objective is to test VMware HCX based migrations to Cloud. This article gives you an idea of how to prepare vSAN based nested LAB to achieve similar goals.

The perfect nested virtualization-based demo LAB: Basics, vCenter, vSphere, shared storage, networking

I am building my lab to support testing cloud migration tools. It is not only for “legacy” VMs but cloud native workloads as well. I deployed ESXi7 on nested Workstation 16, added Synology NAS via NFS to store ISOs, built core infra like DC on Windows Server 2022, and thought about the proper diagramming tool supports the hybrid design and automated deployment.

Got $400 at GCP: I am preparing for Migrate for Compute Engine test

I have activated my GCP sandbox. Received an extra $100! Impressive welcome screen with offerings. The first service I am going to test is Migrate for Compute Engine API to better understand how to move complex workloads from VMware. How different sources such as Hyper-V (Azure Stack HCI) or KVM are supported?

Hands-on LAB! “The source system.”

Storage is key, saying as ex. Virtana employee. If you want to build a fast and great lab, you need to understand your options in this area.
