Well the wait is now over. I have received conformation that I’ve had two sessions of the 5 accepted for VMworld 2012. Thanks so much to all those who voted for my sessions. Now all the hard work begins building and polishing the presentations for the sessions. I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of people at VMworld San Francisco and Barcelona, I hope you can make it. Here are the sessions that were accepted.
Session ID: INF-SEC1282
Session Title: Automating Security and Compliance with Disaster Recovery Using VCM, vCOps, vShield, VIN and SRM
Presenting at: US
Description: 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.
Session ID: APP-BCA1432
Session Title: Conversion Experience: How VMware Invented the Happy DBA!
Presenting at: Both
Description: 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 based large scale organizations and how they virtualized their mission critical Oracle databases and infrastructure and migrated from traditional Unix platforms to RedHat Enterprise Linux on vSphere.
Also look out for other VMworld sessions from the top virtualization architects and bloggers such as Duncan Epping’s VMworld 2012 Sessions, Frank Denneman, Scott Lowe, Chad Sakac and others.
