(41) Security Updates and Patching
This month we finished the migration from Hyper-V to VMWare's vSphere product. We're now running on the latest version of their vSphere platform (8.0U1). This month's focus will be on making sure the virtual workloads are distributed properly, that alerting/monitoring/security are set correctly throughout the environment, and that we publish our platform dashboard so management can have visibility to it. We went ahead and did the first 2 passes of optimization of the platform; fine-tuning the workload and the algorithm to place that workload is the next step.
One of the servers has a failed Real-Time Clock (RTC) module. In 30 years in this industry I've never seen this module fail. It will require replacement of that server's motherboard to rectify. I'll follow-up in email with the request and some alternative paths we could take instead.
