Buzz From VMworld 2012: The State of the Virtualization & Cloud Market Weren't able to attend VMworld this year? This session will fill you in on the major announcements that came out of the conference—from new virtualization and cloud technologies that should be on every CTO and IT Director’s radar—to the state of the industry as viewed by its thought leaders. Topics include VMware Horizon Application Manager; vSphere 5.1 and the elimination of vRam entitlements; vCenter Operations Manager; and the new vCloud Suites. We’ll also discuss the DynamicOps and Nicira acquisitions, where the Software Defined Datacenter is headed, and what the acceleration of end user computing in the post-pc era really means for IT organizations.
Real World VDI Battlefield Stories: the Blood, the Tears, and the Dirt! “Every battle is won, before it is even fought.” —Sun Tzu. In this session, we will cover some real world deployments with VMware View and Citrix XenDesktop, and discuss some of the successes and failures encountered along the way. We will also explore the challenges that different environments pose, as well as key project highlights—and hurdles. Join us and learn how to avoid the pitfalls of career-ending VDI projects by selecting the right methodology and the right technologies for your environment—up front. We’ll discuss how to design the best storage architecture for VDI, how to enhance application delivery within VDI sessions, and how to optimize desktop VMs to get the most out of your hypervisor.
Clustered Datacenters! Highly Available Computing Across Metro and Wide Area Networks How can datacenters be “federated” into one logical datacenter across geography to utilize all resources in all datacenters and improve resiliency and availability? How can workloads be load balanced across multiple datacenters? Business and other organizations need high uptime and availability which depends on “always on” applications, accessible from anywhere. The ability to utilize resources at every datacenter location goes directly to the bottom line. Virtualization of networking, computing, and storage begin to make this an affordable and even required solution for many organizations. Technologies to stretch datacenters and computing clusters did not exist or were too complex or expensive just a few years ago. But things have changed. Join us for an in-depth discussion of this emerging datacenter architecture.
Special Demo: Cloud Management as a Service—through a Single Pane of Glass One of the biggest challenges to managing enterprise hybrid clouds is affordable access to truly integrated monitoring and management tools. These tools can run into the millions of dollars—not to mention the cost of the professional services necessary to integrate them. In this session, we will demo GreenPages’ CMaaS (Cloud Management as a Service) technology solution that provides organizations with access to an integrated, enterprise-class, single pane of glass SaaS-based management platform to effectively manage public, private, and cloud resources—all at an affordable, fixed cost. We will also outline the management framework we use to assess an organization’s specific strengths and weaknesses in relation to their readiness to build, manage, and consume cloud resources.
