Me Being Interviewed About CSV & Backup Design by Carsten Rachfahl

I was at the E2E Virtualisation Conference over the weekend, and had a good time chatting with lots of folks including Ronnie Isherwood (@virtualfat), Jeff Wouters (@JeffWouters), Didier van Hoye (@workinghardinit), and Carsten Rachfahl (@hypervserver). 

Carsten was awarded MVP status in Virtual Machine (like myself) by Microsoft earlier this year.  He’s a big contributor to the German (and English too) speaking community, tweeting, blogging, podcasting, and creating videos.

After my second session on CSV and backup design, Carsten asked if I would be willing to shoot a video interview on the subject.  Absolutely, and it just so happened we had a cool background with the London docklands at sunset – being an amateur photographer I was willing to shiver a little for nice light Smile


The video was posted this morning by Carsten.  He was a busy man; more videos were shot over the weekend with some of the others, and we even did a roundtable video where we talked about our favourite features of Windows 8.  Those videos will be posted in the coming weeks.

  1. Hi Aidan, the video was well shot, and came across really well.

    I’m looking forward to the other videos Carsten will be posting.

    During the interview you touched briefly about SCSI reservations with CSVs and how you’ve known them to cause issues, I’m keen to learn more about this as it affects a multi site Hyper-V environment at my new employer, have you blogged about this before or released any papers on it?


    1. Are you going to the Hyper-V Immersion events in the next couple of weeks? It’ll be talked about there. I’m fairly sure I’ve blogged about it a few times, and it’s in the CSV & Design whitepaper.
