My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together
This is a landing page for my vTARDIS project which won the VMworld Europe 2010 user awards.
What is vTARDIS?
A small, low cost physical infrastructure (or single server) which is capable of supporting several multi-node ESX clusters. It provides an infrastructure representative of enterprise-grade vSphere/vCD deployment through heavy over-subscription of physical hardware as well as providing “production” home services like media streaming, data storage, DNS, DHCP etc.
vTARDIS is a play on the BBC Doctor Who TV series, in which the time-travelling star operates from a phone box known as the TARDIS, which is much larger on the inside (multiple rooms/suites) than it appears from the outside – which I thought was quite apt for this project
The original vTARDIS project can be found here
vTARDIS.cloud can be found here
Variants of the vTARDIS has been demonstrated at several London VMUG meetings, BriForum Chicago 2010 and VMworld US 2010.
My previous home-lab incarnations are shown below (from my BriForum 2010 presentation)
