VMware Horizon 8 2212 Enterprise What’s New

Horizon 8 2212 is an Extended Service Branch (ESB). Approximately once a year, VMware designates one VMware Horizon release as an Extended Service Branch (ESB). An ESB is a parallel release branch to the existing Current Releases (CR) of the product. By choosing to deploy an ESB, customers receive periodic service packs (SP) updates, which include cumulative critical bug fixes and security fixes. Most importantly, there are no new features in the SP updates, so customers can rely on a stable Horizon platform for their critical deployments. For more information on the ESB and the Horizon versions that have been designated an ESB , see VMware Knowledge Base (KB) article 86477.

VMware Horizon 8 version 2212 includes the following new features and enhancements.

Install Comodo/Sectigo SSL certificate on Unifi Controller 7.2.94 on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to share this story, because it took me some time and hopefully this can save some time for you all…

UPDATE ! 2022-10-18 (New unifi controller version / Ubuntu version)

There was a day I was working on my unifi controller and wanted to make it safer by adding an SSL certificate.

Piece of cake I thought, but while doing this the ‘trial and error’ way of it-life, I combined all the google search and community pieces together..

I now run Unifi Controller 7.2.94 on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS and I have a Comodo/Sectigo wildcard *.domain.tld certificate.

Important note, I can download my Versio certificate from my provider decrypted or encrypted.

I now used the decrypted versions.

VMWare vSphere 8.0

Zonder enige twijfel de voornaamste update bij vSphere 8 is de ondersteuning voor DPU’s, oftewel Data Processing Units. Deze toevoeging komt uiteraard niet onverwachts. Zoals gebruikelijk bij VMware was ook dit eerst een project, namelijk Project Monterey.

De impact van de toevoeging van de ondersteuning voor DPU’s aan vSphere is vrijwel niet te onderschatten, zeker niet op de langere termijn. Deze programmeerbare chips spelen namelijk een steeds belangrijkere rol in datacenters. Ze moeten er zorgen voor stevige prestatie- en efficiëntiewinsten voor omgevingen. Je kunt namelijk specifieke netwerk- en securityfuncties van CPU’s offloaden naar DPU’s. Standaard ben je daar tot wel zo’n 20 procent aan resources binnen een CPU aan kwijt. Die capaciteit komt met de inzet van DPU’s dus beschikbaar voor workloads. Volgens VMware kunnen applicaties die sterk afhankelijk zijn van een hoge bandbreedte en snelle toegang tot cache (denk aan in-memory databases) rekenen op 20 procent besparing voor de CPU-cores en een 36 procent hogere transactiesnelheid. Dit zonder concessies te doen op het gebied van prestaties. Onderaan de streep moet het geheel op deze manier een lagere TCO opleveren.
