So I have spent the best part of a day configuring Microsoft Office 365 to use my Cloud-land domain name.
The hardest part (and not actually hard) was creating DNS records within the domain portal to verify that I did indeed own the domain name.
One of the best parts is that I can now use Microsoft Lync with my own domain name. I have yet to explore the Microsoft Azure path, either way I bet Ben Diqual (@bendiq) would be proud!
Try it, Add me on Lync -> firstname.lastname@example.org
HP Insight control plugin for vCenter is the go-forward VMware vCenter management integration plug-in for HP Storage. In addition to managing all HP block storage arrays, this vCenter plug-in also manages HP servers and virtual connect networking with the Server module. HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter Server integrates with both VMware vSphere Client and VMware’s new vSphere Web Client.
HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter enables the VMware administrator to quickly obtain contextual information about HP storage directly from vCenter. Available as a no-charge download, this functionality provides the VMware administrator the ability to easily see and manage how virtual machines relate to data stores and individual disk volumes.
