Welcome to Random Short Take #69. Let’s get random.
- The recent-ish announcement of Apple’s Mac Studio made for some interesting news. The Verge looks at it here.
- When I was working with Veeam technologies, Anthony made things easier by doing a lot of the work for me. Now I work with VMC on AWS and it seems Anthony is still doing work for me. Check out his post on SDDC Network Import/Export and this one on firewall rules automatically disabling themselves.
- Speaking of VMware Cloud on AWS, it’s now available on the AWS Marketplace. You can read more about that here.
- John Nicholson asks if “luck” should factor into your DR/BC plans? Of course it shouldn’t, but you’d be amazed how often it does.
- This episode of Gestalt IT’s On-Premise Podcast on the topic of storage being insecure got me thinking about some stuff.
- Speaking of insecure, the Samba 4.16 release strips away more SMB 1, which can only be seen as good news. Read about that at El Reg.
- Still on data protection, Kubernetes data protection is being neglected.
- Ransomware: it’s something all the kids are getting into. Enrico wrote a great piece over at GigaOm about why it should be thought of as a data management problem.
