How to Install ESXi 5.x or 6.x in VMware
What is ESXi vSphere?
VMware vSphere is a virtualization platform that creates aggregated computing infrastructures consisting of networking resources, CPU, and storage out of data centers. The main elements of vSphere are vCenter Server and ESXi, formerly VMware vSphere Hypervisor. It is a bare-metal hypervisor installable directly on your server or Workstation.
Cloud Servers vs Physical Servers: A Comparison
Choosing the right hosting environment is essential in positioning a business for successful growth. Companies operate differently based on clientele, the need to process information/orders, and how quickly market adaptation changes are needed. The common thread is the necessity of being digital to survive in today’s economy. Eventually, you’ll reach the crossroad of comparing a cloud server to a physical server to determine your best hosting environment.
What is Desktop-as-a-Service?
As firms advance towards a more modern infrastructure, the Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) model is becoming an increasingly popular cloud-based system. Desktop-as-a-Service is a multi-tenant, cloud computing solution in which a service provider furnishes a virtual desktop to an end-user over the internet. A provider typically manages the infrastructure, including the security updates, available desktop applications, data storage, and backups. In specific instances, DaaS users manage these services individually. According to Gartner via Workspot:
What are the Five Criteria Of a Cloud Platform?
Cloud computing is a model for empowering users to access a useful, network-accessible, shared pool of resources that allows for quick changes to settings and configurations with minimal intervention from a service provider in an easy-to-maneuver self-service management interface.
How to Store Secrets in Kubernetes
What is a Secret?
A Kubernetes Secret is an object that enables us to store and manage sensitive information. A Secret can contain data like SSH keys, OAuth data, or other user authentication information like passwords. It is typically stored within a cluster in a manner native to Kubernetes. Using a Secret object provides more granular control over how highly sensitive data is used. It also lowers the risk of data exposure to unauthorized parties.
How to Install and Configure KubeKey
What is KubeKey?
KubeKey is the newest Kubernetes installer for KubeSphere. KubeSphere is a distributed OS management system for cloud-native applications using Kubernetes as its kernel.

Why Choose a VMware Cloud?
If you have been in the hosting industry for some time, you most likely had to upgrade your hosting package or resize your server at some point. As your business grows, so do the resources needed to run that business. Over the years, someone has most likely recommended a private cloud solution to you. You probably asked yourself why you would need a more expensive private solution like VMware cloud when you have a powerful VPS server or Dedicated server that is perfectly capable of handling your existing traffic.
Using Telepresence to Improve Microservice Development
What is Telepresence?
Initially developed by Datawire, Telepresence is a new open-source tool supported by the CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation). It allows developers to run local software while connected to a remote Kubernetes cluster. The application uses a two-way network proxy to simulate TCP connections, environmental variables, and other volumes of services as local processes. This link allows for remote work to be accomplished while seemingly local to the cluster via the proxied connection.
What is Containerization in DevOps?
Containers are the future of application development and hosting. They enable DevOps, developers, and system administrators to build, test, deploy, and maintain applications quickly, securely, and efficiently. Tools built around the containerization concept provide simple solutions for basic web applications. These advanced granular configuration options provide the control many enterprise applications may need.
