Check out Socialcast&#rsquo;s newest feature additions, fixes, and updates for the month of August*:

1. Accessing Archived Groups Through Group Dashboard

Groups are essential to collaborating and facilitating discussions within a community, whether it&#rsquo;s around a certain department, team, project, or topic of interest. As more and more groups are created and used to manage conversations, we wanted to make it easier for teams to go back and access the valuable information in these groups once they were archived.

Group members and administrators will now be able to click on the Group button from the left navigation bar to access all their groups, including Archived groups.

From the Groups Dashboard, users will see a new set of options under the filter dropdown, which includes the following:

  • All – shows all Active and Archived groups that you are a member or admin of
  • Active – shows all Active groups that you are a member or admin of
  • Archived – shows all Archived groups that you are a member or admin of
  • Group Admin – shows all Active and Archived groups that you are an admin of
  • Group Member – shows all Active and Archived groups that you are an member of

2. Searching for Requestable Private Groups

A while ago we released a new setting for Private groups so that membership could be requested. Non-members would not able see any of the content inside the group, but could request access from the Groups Directory. We have improved the discovery process and have included these requestable groups in the Search suggestion drop-down for easier access.

To enable discovery of an existing Private group, go to the group Settings > Edit Settings > See More Options > enable &#rsquo;Allow non-members to request membership&#rsquo; > Save.

3. Viewing External Contributor Group Memberships

One of Socialcast&#rsquo;s main focuses is to improve and build upon the External Contributor experience, by enhancing their functionality as well as their management and provisioning. Our first enhancement comes around the ability to view the groups that an External Contributor is a part of. To view an External Contributor&#rsquo;s group memberships, visit their profile and click on the &#rsquo;Groups&#rdquo; tab above the Share Form.

4. Changing Profile Photo for External Contributors

External contributors can now manage their own profile photo by going to their profile page, mousing over their photo, and selecting &#rsquo;Change Photo&#rdquo;.

5. Warning for Closing Out Project Objectives

There&#rsquo;s nothing more gratifying than checking an item off a to-do list. Socialcast Projects makes it super easy to manage objectives, tasks, and due dates to boost overall productivity. But before crossing that item off your list, ask yourself, did you really complete everything you needed? If a user tries to close out an Objective in a Project that still contains an uncompleted task, a confirmation alert dialog will now appear to remind users of outstanding Tasks. Users will have the chance to proceed or cancel. If they chose to proceed, this action will result in the Objective and all corresponding Tasks to be closed out as well. All Tasks and Objectives that are closed in this manner will reflect a completed date of the current date.


6. Reactivating Archived Town Halls

Town Halls can be used to facilitate many important discussions, and the best part, they can be archived for future reference. However, sometimes updates are required even after a Town Hall has ended. This is why we&#rsquo;ve added the ability to reactivate a Town Hall. This new feature allows admins to modify the content and settings of a Town Hall to answer unanswered questions and/or potentially run a second session. To reactivate a Town Hall, go to Settings and click &#rsquo;Reactivate Town Hall&#rdquo;. A confirmation banner will appear at the top of the screen indicating that the Town Hall is once again, active. Reactivated Town Halls will maintain their original Duration, Speakers, Moderators, Attendees, Questions/Answers, and will be set to start in 2 hours from when it was reactivated.

*Please note that On-Premise clients will receive these features in a future release.

At VMware, our people are inspired to drive what&#rsquo;s next for technology and one another in the community because of the belief that knowledge powers change. Connect with Laura, Americas Field Planning Manager, and see how her learnings create opportunity.

Name: Laura Douglas

Role: Americas Field Planning Manager, Real Estate & Workplace

Office Location: Colorado Springs, CO

Years at VMware: 4

 

What does paying it forward mean to you?

The truth is, none of us can get through life alone. I wouldn&#rsquo;t be where I am today without the encouragement of my family and peers. I&#rsquo;ve gotten help along the way and have been given opportunities that not everyone has access to. Paying it forward is the act of recognizing what has been done for you and expressing your gratitude by leaving this world with more than you take.

What does the quote, &#rsquo;The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you&#rdquo; from the VMware Foundation&#rsquo;s Service Learning campaign mean to you?

As cliché as it sounds, knowledge really is power. The more you learn, the more power you have over anything that has been holding you back, whether that is fear, circumstances, etc.

How do you instill this value in your child?

My son is 9-months old, and it amazes me how much he has learned in such a short time! We have been reading to him since the day we brought him home (and he likes to play with books, as you can see), which in my opinion is one of the most important things you can do for a child. As he gets older, we plan to introduce him to the importance of giving back by volunteering as a family.

Please reflect on having your child featured in the campaign. What does it mean to you and your family?

We&#rsquo;re so proud that Parker&#rsquo;s picture is featured in the VMware Foundation&#rsquo;s Service Learning campaign. I love working for a company that not only encourages citizen philanthropy, but that gives its employees a chance to be involved on a whole new level such as having family members featured in the promotional materials for the summer Service Learning campaign. It&#rsquo;s so fun knowing that his poster is hanging in VMware offices all over the world.

皆様こんにちは。VMwareの秋山と申します。
本稿では、Breakout セッション以外のVMworldの見所として、VMworld Partyについてご紹介してまいります。

■ VMworld Party
水曜日の夜は、VMworld Partyということで、モスコーンセンターのすぐ近くにあるイェルバ・ブエナ ガーデンズというモスコーンセンターのWESTと同じくらいの大きさの講演でPM7:00から開催されました。会場内では、筋肉系のエンターテイメントが実施されたり、かつらをかぶって記念撮影が出来たり、大きな画面でいろいろな映像を流したりしながら、ビールやワイン等のアルコールといろいろな軽食が取れるようになっています。

こちらでは、楽しみながらエンドユーザ様やパートナー様等の参加者様同士のコミュニケーションをとってもらうためのネットワーキングイベントとしての位置づけされています。アメリカのお客様同士でのコミュニケーションが主になるかと思いますが、ざっと1万人近いお客様が参加されているようには感じました。

また、弊社CEOのPat GelsingerがEMCのCEOであるJoe Tucciからの指名によりアイス・バケツ・チャレンジも実施されました。こちらは、ご存知の方も多いかと思いますが、筋萎縮性側索硬化症(ALS)協会への寄付を募る活動で、氷水を頭からかぶるものになります。実施後弊社CEOが次に指名したかは残念ながら聞き取れませんでした。。。


また、8時半からはモスコーンセンターのNorthでコンサートが開催されました。コンサートは、BlackKeysというUSで今年Breakしているグループのようですが、私は、疎く知らなかったです。。。(有名なようなみんなスマフォで写真とってました)

最終日の前日になりますが、まさに参加者様を交えた打ち上げといった雰囲気のイベントであったかと思います。

■ ご注意

This storage solution leverages economical hardware compared to more expensive storage arrays and offers all the vSphere solutions like vMotion, HA, and DRS. We have been testing Virtual SAN with a number of workloads to characterize their performance. In particular we found that Web 2.0 applications, modeled with the Cloudstone benchmark,performs exceptionally with low application latency on vSphere 5.5 with Virtual SAN. We are giving a quick glimpse of the testing configuration and result here and the full detail can be found in therecently publishedtechnical white paper about Web 2.0 applications on VMware Virtual SAN.

We ran the Cloundstone benchmark using Olio server and client virtual machine pairs. Server virtual machines were on a 3-host server cluster, whereas client virtual machines were on a 3-node client cluster. An Olio server virtual machine ran Ubuntu 10.04 with a MySQL database, a NGINX Web server with PHP scripts, and a Tomcat application server. An Olio client virtual machine simulated typical Web 2.0 workloads by exercising 7 different types of user operations that involved web file exchanges and database inquiries and transactions. Virtual SAN was configured on the server cluster. Web files, database files, and OS files were all on the Virtual SAN with dedicated virtual disks to store files separately.

In the paper, we report test results that show Virtual SAN achieves good application latency performance. Each server-client virtual machine pair was pre-configured for 500 Olio users. In one test, we ran 1500 Olio users and 7500 users by having 3 and 15 pairs of virtual machines respectively. We collected the average round-trip time of Olio operations. These operations were divided into frequent ones (EventDetail, HomePage, Login and TagSearch) and less frequent ones (AddEvent, AddPerson, and PersonDetail) according to how often they were exercised in the tests.

The following graph shows the average round-trip times for various operations. The threshold for these operations was defined in the passing critera, which used 250 milliseconds for the frequent operations and 500 milliseconds for the less frequent operations. In the 15VMs/7500 userscase, the server cluster was at 70% CPU utilization, but the round-trip time was well below the passing threshold as shown. We also present the 95th-percentile round-trip time results and how it performed inthe white paper.

To learn the full story of the 15VMs/7500 Olio users test and how we further stressed storage with the workload and read the results, seethe white paper.
