Best Practices for Running Virtualized Workloads on An All-Flash Array [7574]

All-Flash Arrays (AFAs) are taking the storage industry by storm. Many customers are leveraging AFAs for virtualizing their data centers, with a majority of them using EMC XtremIO. In this session, we will examine the reasons behind strong adoption of AFAs, discuss similarities and differences between different AFA architectures, and deep dive into specific best practices for the following virtualized use cases: 1. Databases: how they can benefit from being virtualized on an AFA; 2. EUC: how VDI 1.0 started, what VDI 3.0 means and how it is applicable for an AFA; and 3. Generic workloads being migrated to AFAs. If topics like UNMAP, Queue depths etc’ rings a bell, this is the session for you!

 

 

Demystifying OpenStack Private Clouds with VMware and EMC XtremIO All-Flash Array [8330]

OpenStack Cloud deployments have long been notorious for being too complex and unpredictable, often requiring long implementation times and ongoing optimization. In this session, experts from VMware and EMC will discuss how VMware Integrated OpenStack (VIO), coupled with EMC XtremIO all-flash scale-out storage can dramatically simplify OpenStack implementations while delivering enterprise-class reliability, consistent predictable workload performance, and easy linear scalability.

 

 
 

Best Practices for Deploying Virtualized SQL Server on EMC XtremIO All-Flash Storage [8746]

All-flash storage opens up many new ways managing SQL Server database lifecycle, can impact your existing virtualized SQL Server design and deployment methodologies. Come to this session to see how XtremIO’s all-flash compare to traditional storage, explore use cases, see demos of XtremIO’s unique integrated copy data management (iCDM) stack integrate with vRealize Automation to accelerate SQL Server database application lifecycle management, and increase DBA productivities. See why traditional SQL Server best practices can be significantly simplified on XtremIO. We will focus on areas like VMFS/RDM, vSCSI adapters, queue depth, multi-pathing, number of LUNs, database file layout, tempdb placement, and more!

Achieving performance, scalability and efficiency for Oracle DBaaS infrastructure with vRealize Automation and EMC XtremIO all-flash scale-out storag [7626]

DBaaS has tremendous potential to transform how databases are provisioned, consumed, managed and decommissioned – simplifying day to day operations of DBAs, application owners, and developers. However, careful planning and agile infrastructure are the must for delivering DBaaS that performs consistently and scales predictably. Experts from VMware and EMC will discuss key considerations and best practices for successfully delivering Oracle DBaaS.

Tales from the Trenches: End-User Computing Architect Perspectives On Next Generation VDI [8222]

VDI architects from VMware and EMC XtremIO discuss the recent trends in desktop virtualization and role of all-flash storage in ushering in the new era of VDI. This technical session will examine Just-in-Time desktops and how to orchestrate desktop building blocks including Instant Clone Technology, AppVolumes and User Environment Management customizations to deliver personalized desktops. The role of XtremIO all-flash storage as the underlying high-speed engine will be discussed. Performance data for VDI with Windows 10 will be looked at in-depth with tips and recommendations for deployment and optimization.

 

 

Hardware as a Service: Case Study of automated provisioning of hardware into vSphere and Cloud Foundry environments [8609]

The Pivotal cloud building team called PEZ, has built an automated system where users submit a request in one end and fully configured vSphere with Pivotal Cloud Foundry on top comes out the other end. Full control is handed over from the bare metal hardware all the way up to the platform on top. All of this built using components of the EMC federation including vSphere, NSX (Network), PCF (PaaS) and XtremIO (Storage). This will be an exploration in automation showing how to inventory hardware, provision hardware via IPMI & PXE, install ESXi over PXE, install vCenter via OVFtool, configure vSphere components with PowerCLI, build networks with NSX over an API, provision storage over an API, and install PCF. All automated by robots. Technology covered will include IPMI, PXE, Foreman, ESXi 6.0, vCenter 6.0, NSX, vSAN, EMC ScaleIO, EMC XtremIO, and Pivotal Cloud Foundry. Tools mentioned include Python, PowerCLI, and lots and lots of magic. All materials will be published with details included. Portions of the project may be available as open source available on Github.

 

 

Cracking the Healthcare Code: The Avera Health Perspective [8828]

Healthcare IT organizations are facing a constant challenge of meeting provider needs to deliver quality patient care through always accessible systems. Healthcare providers require transformative solutions to innovate the desktop and application delivery using virtualization. Avera Health, a regional health system comprising more than 300 locations in 100 communities throughout US mid-west, faced several business challenges of aging PC’s in patient care areas, standardizing nurses’ stations, supporting BYO program with diverse devices, and remote access.  Partnering with VMware and EMC, Avera leveraged a combined solution of Horizon View, App Volumes, and User Environment Manager along with EMC XtremIO for a high performance desktop experience.  This strategy enabled Avera to create a standardized virtual desktop solution and consistent delivery of applications to providers allowing them to be prepared for a large scale deployment of Meditech to their hospitals and clinics. Providers are given easy access to applications and can enter data while preserving their need for mobility.  The result was extremely efficient workflows, improved patient safety, and reduced struggles with technology.   Attend this session to learn how VMware Horizon, App Volumes, User Environment Manager and EMC XtremIO can be implemented together to deliver a highly-available and scalable architecture worthy of the most demanding healthcare environments.

 

Under the covers of the virtualized data center [9011]

A modern businesses’ success is intrinsically linked to the operation of their End User Computing and Business Critical Application environments. The vast majority have already embraced the virtualized data center model and now enjoy the efficiencies realized through the decoupling of server hardware, operating system, and applications. The journey to further optimize your VMware hosted environment does not stop here though! In this session, product experts from Brocade and EMC will discuss what options are available to Solutions Architects and Data Center administrators to achieve further optimization and improvement in the delivery of virtualized IT services. This technical overview will focus on how to ensure you can achieve maximum usage of back-end hardware resources without compromising application performance. Verified vendor best practices to be used in the deployment of both virtual database and virtual desktop infrastructures will be presented and discussed. Opportunities for increased instrumentation across the entire I/O stack (storage and fabric) will be highlighted and examined – delivering performance you can trust with visibility into I/O performance from the application to virtual machine and through the physical layers. Vendor technologies to be discussed will include; Brocade (FC SAN, FabricVision, VM-ID, AMP), EMC (XtremIO All-Flash Storage), VMware (ESXi, Horizon, vROps
