FVP Freedom Edition Launch

As you know we shipped PernixData FVP 3.0 version yesterday, but what you might not know is that we also shipped PernixData FVP Freedom Edition. This in my opinion is an exciting addition to the product family and based on the feedback we have already received it’s taking off in a major way!! Keep in mind this is totally free software with no restrictions or time limits. 


For those unfamiliar with the Freedom Edition I have outlined the supported features that come with this release. 

Supported Features
•    vSphere 5.1, 5.5 and 6.0
•    Maximum 128GB of Memory (DFTM) per FVP Cluster
•    Unlimited VM’s and Hosts
•    Write Through Configuration

If you want DFTM-Z (Memory Compression) or the ability to configure Write Back for your virtual machines then you can easily upgrade to our standard and enterprise licensing options. 

Freedom Community Forum
We are launching with the Freedom edition a brand new community forum. This is to provide support and collaboration among the Freedom users. As you might guess, we are planning to add a lot of content over the next few weeks, so the more questions or interaction you have on the forum, the more it will make it useful for the Freedom community. In order to access this forum, you can visit https://community.pernixdata.com and click sign-in. We have enabled SSO support, so all you have to use is your same PernixData download portal account and we will redirect you back into the community forum. 

If you haven’t already requested the Freedom edition, you can request access here. Once registered you will automatically receive an email with instructions on how to gain access to the software and portal. This is totally an automated process, so you will get your Freedom license key the same day you request it!!

CloudCred - Knowledge, Recognition, Access

VMware just recently launch a really cool community platform called CloudCred. The premise is to expand and expose the community to more VMware/Cloud knowledge, while building a personal portfolio of accomplishments. The current plan is to reward those that have completed assigned personal or team tasks that show your accomplishments and knowledge. 

I give kudos to VMware for developing a platform that is fun and uses team collaboration to enrich the community and expand VMware, Partner and Cloud technology. 

Charlie Gautreaux @chuckgman has created a Pernixdata team on CloudCred. I Joined this team as I wanted to be part of a team that will revolutionize the next cloud technology!
