Enabling New Virtualization Requirements: Building a Microsoft Private Cloud Infrastructure with Pure Storage

Almost every type of organization has, at this point, deployed some level of virtualization. With today’s requirements around digital transformations, cloud, and virtualization, organizations are constantly looking for new ways to optimize their data centers and improve application and services delivery. Very recently, Microsoft has released new updates to their Hyper-V and System Center management framework. These benefits include deeper integration with cloud, underlying virtualization systems, and how this all integrates with the underlying data center.

At the center of all of this sits your storage.

However, a big challenge for many organizations is still optimizing virtualization on top of their storage ecosystem. Furthermore, many organizations are missing out on big benefits when they integrate advanced management solutions, like Microsoft System Center, with storage systems like Pure.

In this webinar, we’ll learn about the big changes and updates to Hyper-V and System Center 2016. Furthermore, we’ll learn about the importance of your storage platform and the evolution storage has experienced. Specifically, we’ll cover how to manage System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) and Hyper-V with Pure Storage FlashArray using the new SMI-S Provider. We’ll discuss:

  • Growth and importance of virtualization system
  • The need to manage server, storage, and virtualization systems differently in a digital world
  • Best practices to tie in virtualization, management, storage
  • How to effectively manage SCVMM, Hyper-V and the new Pure FlashArray platform
