Speaking Sessions


Leveraging vSphere Virtual Volumes to Simplify Storage Management

Whether you are just thinking about how to leverage VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes or have been using them for a while, come hear directly from VMware customers on how they successfully deployed vSphere Virtual Volumes from proof of concept through production, deployment, and beyond. Panelists will present and answer questions on how they deployed vSphere Virtual Volumes in their enterprises. The session will cover why they chose vSphere Virtual Volumes, deployment strategies, and best practices for success.

Using Validated Designs and an All-Flash Array for a True Private Cloud

VMware Validated Designs offer customers the ability to build and operate a software-defined data center (SDDC) that enables private cloud capabilities across mobility, standardization, and optimization throughout day x operations. In this session, find out how you can use VMware Validated Designs to remove technical debt from your business applications by adopting open standards APIs to deliver a single architected solution that meets multiple business requirements covering prod/dev/test/analytic use cases. See how Validated Designs provide a platform for continuous innovation by combining VMware technologies with a Pure Storage all-flash array to deliver services for infrastructure, application, and business resources that don’t break the bank and continue evolving to meet future needs.

Core Storage Best Practices

With all the different storage arrays and connectivity protocols available today, knowing the best practices can help can operational efficiency and ensure resilient operations. VMware’s storage global service has reported many of the common service calls they receive. We will review some of the common mistakes made when setting up storage arrays. We will go over the most common and most valuable configurations to maximize the value of your array and vSphere.

Hot Now! Original Glazed VVOLs

In this session I will explain Krispy Kreme's evaluation and implementation of Virtual Volumes. I will discuss our latest data center refresh where we implemented next generation all flash storage from Pure and vSphere 6.5. I will tie everything together to show how these technologies work with each other and the advantages that you get by when your storage and virtual environment are fully leveraged.

Best Practices for Kubernetes on VMware vSphere

Kubernetes is the platform of choice to deploy cloud native applications and services in the public or private cloud. How can you get started with Kubernetes on vSphere? What are the best practices and lessons learned running Kubernetes in a virtual environment? What tools and solutions can enable your own “as a Service” model for on premises private cloud, public cloud and multi-cloud? We will look at solutions such as Kubeadm, Kubernetes Anywhere, and Pivotal Container Services.

Virtual Volumes Deep Dive with Pure Storage

With the release of VMware Virtual Volumes (VVols) 2.0, enterprise HA features now enable customers to use VMware integrated array-based snapshots and replication to address the performance limitations in VMware Snapshots. The Pure Storage FlashArray support for VVols 2.0 and VASA 3.0 enable VM Granular Storage, Storage Policy Based Management, Non-Disruptive Upgrades, and a Highly Available VASA provider, all managed via vCenter. The benefits of VVols 2.0 are compelling and migration with FlashArray is EASY!
