INF7764-QT - Has the Hypervisor Been Commoditized? One of the most hotly debated subjects in IT today is whether or not the hypervisor has been commoditized. With a slowing global economy, businesses and organizations of all sizes are tightening IT budgets, forcing the question of whether or not they should migrate completely to a platform that is open source or included with an OS that they already own or one that is able to run multiple hypervisors. For example, mission-critical apps deserve the most stable and mature platform, while less important environments like labs or branch offices can get away with the "free" solution. Because the hypervisor is truly the foundation and first step toward building any Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC)/hybrid cloud-or even the public cloud for that matter-the importance of this decision cannot be understated. In this session, we will have an honest talk about the current discussions surrounding hypervisor commoditization and motivators towards running multiple solutions, or all-out migration. We will discuss what other offerings are out there and the advantages and disadvantages of each. We'll also dive into why the hypervisor is so fundamentally important to the success of any SDDC/hybrid cloud and how VMware vSphere is the best solution both technically and financially. Last, we'll uncover the true costs and complexities of running multiple hypervisors and why it usually doesn't make sense to do so. Scott Calvet - Global SDDC/Hybrid Cloud Evangelist, VMware
David Zolnier - Sr Competitive Marketing Manager, VMware
STO8694 - High-Speed Heroics: Array-based Replication and Recovery for VMware Virtual Volumes VMware Virtual Volumes bring unprecedented flexibility to storage. Custom tailored storage policies can be created to fit the needs of individual applications rather than entire datastores. However, not all VVols implementations are the same and some use cases, such as replication and recovery, can become a major bottleneck limiting their usefulness. On the other hand, when paired with array-based replication capabilities, the benefits of VVols can be significantly enhanced utilizing native functionality for VM tuning, protection, replication, recovery and more. Julian Cates - Principal Technical Marketing Engineer, Nimble Storage
Narayan Kumar - Senior Product Manager, Nimble Storage
Pete Flecha - Sr Technical Marketing Architect, VMware
SEC9385 - How Virtualization Will Transform Security Security spend has been growing twice as fast as IT spend.  It would seem the only thing growing faster than security spend… is security losses.  This spiraling trend shows no evidence of turning around despite massive investment and innovation in security technology.  At the heart of the issue is an architectural gap - between the applications and data we are trying to protect, and the infrastructure from which we are trying to protect them.  Virtualization could be the key to solving this problem — enabling security to be architected-in, rather than bolted on.  Micro-segmentation has opened the door for a wave of innovation — enabling us to see and control the infrastructure through the lens of the application.  But this is only the beginning.  In this session we will discuss the state of the art — as well as the future of security — through virtualization.  We will discuss how organizations are transforming the security strategy today, and we will demonstrate some new technology directions, that extend "least privilege" policy from the network, to compute and data, and from the private cloud, to the public cloud and next gen apps.  Get a glimpse of the future; a more secure future - through virtualization. Tom Corn - SVP, Security Products, VMware
VIRT7507 - How to Design and Tune Virtualized Trading Platforms With recent advances in VMware vSphere 6 performance, we continue to see some of the most serious application workloads being virtualized. It is no longer an issue whether a tier-1 workload can be virtualized, but rather there are companies that are betting their tier-0 on the VMware stack. Société Générale (formerly NewEdge) is one such company, with their main trading platform called NVision running on a fully virtualized cluster servicing some 20 million trades per day. This session will cover various platform architectures that are used, with deep dive into the cluster design for this trading platform. The session will share many best practices and actual examples used with customers that are running such high-end platforms. Specifically, Java Garbage Collection, in-memory databases, vSphere tuning techniques, and rationalization of large deployments having 1000s of VMs and JVMs will be discussed. Come to this session to learn about GC tuning and vSphere recipes that can give you the best configuration for latency sensitive applications for high-end performance platforms.

VIRT7511R - Performance Tuning and Monitoring for Virtualized Database Servers Business-critical database platforms like Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server are among the last holdouts to enterprise virtualization, and the first to exhibit symptoms of infrastructure challenges. Is your VMware environment ready to accommodate them properly? Are your DBAs ready to virtualize them? Have you virtualized these, and now the DBAs complain about performance or lack of control? Successful virtualization of these platforms requires a different approach to virtualization than for other applications. The speakers will share their years of experience in virtualizing these data platforms so that you know how to validate your VMware environment for these systems and manage the performance properly. Scalability concerns will be addressed through discussions on scaling an individual database VM upwards and outwards as you manage the lifecycle of these database VMs. Key talking points will be presented so you can not only perfect the database virtualization from a technical level, but also from an organizational and people level by knowing how to convince the DBA that database virtualization -- done right -- is here to stay.

STO7618 - Performing Continuous Disaster Recovery Planning and Testing on Hundreds of Applications using Site Recovery Manager Disaster recovery plans have been challenged by their tests and measurements; however, they are achievable with a targeted confidence level. Typically, a disaster recovery (DR) test involves downtime that is disruptive and has a big impact on business operations. VMware IT's DR team formulated a set of key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure its DR confidence at various architectural layers (network, computing resources, core infrastructure platforms and business applications) based on different types of DR-related tasks that involve disaster recovery configurations, unit tests and integrated tests. Our business application categorization enables us to implement different DR plans and test strategies. This session will focus on the governance to enable frequent DR practices at different layers following different test strategies. We will also discuss a systematic way to keep the protected applications and their footprints up to date. Grant Nowell - IT Director, Application Operations, VMware
