Webcast: The Great Migration: Your VMware Enterprise Workloads in the Cloud

The Great Migration: Your VMware Enterprise Workloads in the Cloud

Topic: Since October of 2016, when VMware announced its partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), organizations have been looking to the cloud to provide consistent functionality while enabling cloud workload mobility.

This migration has been fueled by strategic digital transformation initiatives focusing on increasing workload mobility while delivering scalable applications that reduce downtime and increase user productivity. Given these challenges, you can clearly see why the cloud represents an appealing option for managing VMware enterprise environments.

Join Yadin Porter de León, Lead Advocate of Druva’s Level Up Project and Seyi Verma, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Druva where they’ll discuss the recent findings from Druva’s 2017 VMware Cloud Migration Survey as well as:

  • Why 90% of VMware admins will use the cloud for production workloads by 2018
  • How organizations are approaching VMware cloud migrations
  • The timelines for making the move
  • And more!

As a thank you for registering, all registrants will receive a complimentary copy of Druva’s 2017 VMware Cloud Migration Survey.

Speakers: Yadin Porter de León, Lead Advocate of Druva’s Level Up Project and Seyi Verma, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Druva

Pure Storage Webcast Series (1 of 3): ESXi Storage Capacity Reclamation (UNMAP) Deep Dive

Pure Storage Webcast Series (1 of 3): ESXi Storage Capacity Reclamation (UNMAP) Deep Dive

Topic: VMware ESXi-based environments are becoming increasingly dynamic as virtual machines are being created, copied, destroyed and changed constantly for the purposes of development, testing and X-as-a-Service environments. When you delete space in a virtual machine, or an entire virtual disk, or an entire virtual machine, you create dead space. With data reducing all-flash-arrays becoming a norm, the concept of space reclamation AKA UNMAP is becoming particularly important. Making your storage footprint as small and efficient as possible is integral to running a lean infrastructure. This session will go deep into space reclamation in VMware ESXi environments. Understand the what, how, why and when of VMFS UNMAP and In-Guest UNMAP with a focus on new UNMAP support in vSphere 6.5. Learn how to get your space back quickly and effectively.

Pure Storage Webcast Series (2 of 3): Best Practices for All-Flash Arrays with VMware vSphere

Pure Storage Webcast Series (2 of 3): Best Practices for All-Flash Arrays with VMware vSphere

Topic: All-flash arrays are now commonplace in today's data centers, and understanding how to configure and manage VMware vSphere to take advantage of them, in both performance and capacity, is critical. The concept of all-flash and, in particular data reduction, changes how some traditional options inside of VMware ESXi should be considered. Topics such as queuing, space reclamation, Storage I/O Control, VMware vSphere Storage DRS, VMware vSphere VMFS 6, virtual disk choice, multipathing, quality of service, and more will discussed.

Pure Storage Webcast Series (3 of 3): Deep Dive into vSphere 6.5 Core Storage Features and Functionality

Pure Storage Webcast Series (3 of 3): Deep Dive into vSphere 6.5 Core Storage Features and Functionality

Topic: In this session, we will cover a slew of new features and functionalities that were included in the VMware vSphere 6.5 release. These include, but are not limited to, VMware vSphere VMFS 6, automated UNMAP, policy-driven storage I/O control and virtual machine encryption, and enhancements to iSCSI and NFS. This will be a lead-by-example breakout session during which the speakers will demonstrate how to utilize these new features and, more importantly, highlight their benefits. We will also demonstrate the performance benefits of these new features by comparing them to previous versions of vSphere and VMFS.
