There are many trends influencing today's data center environment, including the increasing adoption of the software-defined data center, geographically dispersed multisite enterprise environments, and the continued penetration of public cloud usage. As the scope of the virtualized environment continues to grow, the ability to vMotion freely and efficiently across this expanding environment will be a crucial value proposition.
Each VMware vSphere release introduces new vMotion functionality and capabilities to address theemerging technology trends and enable new use cases. vMotion in the latest vSphere releasealso features significant performance enhancements that leverage innovations in storage (NVMe Flash) and network (100Gb Ethernet) space that enable extremely fast migrations suitable for private cloud deployments.
In this session, join engineers from the development and performance teams to get an insider's view of vMotion architecture, cutting-edge features, newly added capabilities, and tools for performance troubleshooting. Performance studies and best practices will be presented for some of the hot topics, including monster virtual machine migrations and long-distance migrations. Finally, take a sneak peek into the future directions for vMotion, including encrypted vMotion and migration to public clouds.
