It has been eagerly anticipated for some time and now public voting for VMworld sessions has opened. You can have your say on the sessions that will be presented at this years VMworld in San Francisco and Barcelona. I have submitted five sessions in total on different topic. My session numbers are as follows 1221, 1282, 1382, 1464, 1852. Read on for a description of each of the sessions.
This will hopefully be the first of many years of presenting at VMworld in the USA and Europe. I hope that the following sessions will be of interest to you all and that you will vote for these sessions. It will be great to meet up with many of you at VMworld.
1221 – Advanced Technical – Designing and Building for Business Critical Applications
This informative session will cover the key design considerations for tier 1 application environments, including Unix to Linux on vSphere migration, SAP, Oracle, Enterprise Java, and DMZ environments. Your attendance to this session will allow you to ask your most pertinent questions to a subject matter expert, whilst giving you an opportunity to review real design examples that have been delivered successfully to existing customers.
1282 – Technical – Automating Security and Compliance with Disaster Recovery using VCM, vCOps, vShield, VIN and SRM
This session will demonstrate the design and configuration of an integrated solution to provide automated security and compliance to both a production and recovery vSphere 5 environment. Security Policy will be configured on virtualization objects so that any new VM’s deployed will be protected automatically by VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) and have their security policy automatically enforced. Security Policy will be automatically enforced on newly provisioned VM’s at both Production and Recovery sites and also automatically apply during Recovery Testing. vCenter Configuration Manager (VCM) will be configured to automatically collect configuration and change information at both Production and Recovery Sites and Virtual Infrastructure Manager (VIN) is integrated to provide dependency mapping and SRM protection status. VCM is Integrated into vCenter Operations (vCOps) to provide event and change correlation with performance, operations and capacity events. This solution significantly reduces the effort to ensure security and compliance requirements are applied equally at Production and Recovery sites, and can be tested and verified easily during a Recovery test.
1382 – Technical – Oracle on vSphere 5 Technical Case Study – Deep Dive
This session will cover how to Identify, define, architect and describe the capabilities, processes, procedures, and supporting skill sets required to deliver on an Oracle database virtualization strategy. The example cast study will be University of Auckland, New Zealands largest and leading university. University of Auckland virtualized their mission critical Oracle databases and infrastructure late in 2011 / early 2012 , they migrated from traditional Sun SPARC E25K to RedHat Enterprise Linux on vSphere.
1464 – Technical – Enterprise Firewall Replacement using vShield Suite for a PCI environment
Identify, define, architect and describe the capabilities, processes, procedures, and supporting skill sets required to deliver on an firewall virtualization strategy using vShield in a PCI environment. The example cast study will be one of the largest life insurers in APJ. The customer virtualized and replaced their enterprise firewall in their DMZ and Interior zone late in 2011, and they migrated from traditional physical firewall to vShield Edge and vShield App.
1852 – Advanced Technical – Large, Mission-Critical Workloads: Architect Panel
Panel discussion on the performance of business critical application (BCA) VMs, with a particular focus on memory management within and underneath Oracle and Java. The theory of memory page management and recent empirical data will be discussed, including the degree to which virtualization’s ideals of efficiency and performance can exist in tension. The panel will discuss what should be done to achieve and monitor excellent performance of massive (e.g., 32 vCPU) databases and other mission-critical VMs.
