Hyper-V 3.0: Interesting new things !


Recently I have had the chance to start working with Hyper-V (still not a lot). As a VMware veteran I find this very interesting since the changes in the 2012 (3.0) release are quite impressive and if they work as advertised VMware and other virtualization players might have a problem on there hands !

I especially like the Powershell Cmdlets which make the platform quite powerful (yes, yes I know VMware and the other players have those features as well).

However VMware still has the lead when you look at the management interface. I don’t know what it is, but the vSphere interface is truly awesome.

It will be interesting to see how Hyper-V will move along and if all the features work as expected 🙂


Happy new year !


Well, 2013 has decided to show up. Happy new year to everybody !

My holiday did not exactly go as planned. It started with me going to my hometown for 4 days (22-26. Dec) with my son to spend the Christmas with my parents. I had to work on the 27th and the 28th and we were going to drive to the Vest-fjords to meet up with my girlfriend and her family to celebrate the new year with them (she went by air on the 22nd).

But noooooooo ! The almighty weather gods made sure that we would not be able to drive, fly or get there by any other means. It snowed like crazy and the weather got a bit windy as well.

So, we ended up spending our new years eve with my friend, his family and his in-laws. It wasn’t exactly what I had planned for the new year but I cannot complain, his cooking skills are amazing and the company was great 🙂

My girlfriend was not able to get home by plane this evening due to the airport being located in a fjord called Isafjordur. Planes repeatedly have a hard time landing there due to fog and weather conditions. Hopefully she will be able to get home tomorrow morning !

The new job is pretty great, today was the first day that has been quite busy. From the looks of it I am pretty sure that 2013 will be quite busy 😀

Well, so long and thanks for all the fish !
