Webcast: Building the Best Network Function Virtualization Platform with VMware vCloud NFV

Building the Best Network Function Virtualization Platform with VMware vCloud NFV


Topic: Communication Service Providers (CSP), be it in telecommunication mobile networks, content data networking, wireline networks, backbone transport network or CSP/Enterprises using wide area networks are all moving towards software based virtualization using the concept of Network Function Virtualization (NFV). This helps these Businesses to transform from legacy proprietary hardware to standard commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) hardware and build vendor agnostic virtual network functions (VNF) on top of a strong foundation of Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI). With this transformation,  businesses can innovate faster, avoid vendor lock-in, bring new services to market faster, and be cloud ready to meet the demands of rapidly growing digital multi-media enterprises and programmable networks of the future.  VMware vCloud NFV common platform has been built and deployed in production to be as the only carrier class platform in the world that is servicing 250+ million subscribers daily in mobile core telephony networks for data and voice traffic.  This session will take you through:

·         VMware NFV journey and what is VMware vCloud NFV Platform

·         NFV Architecture using vSphere, NSX, vSAN, VCD, VIO, vRops and Log Insight

·         Unique functions in vSphere that enable latency sensitive applications to be run

·         Use of Serial Rapid I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) and Data Plane Development kit (DPDK) for NFV workloads on vSphere

·         How IT networks and Telco Networks can work in a  OneCloud environment to deliver an integrated solution

Webcast: Build High-Performance Multi-Site EUC Systems

Build High-Performance Multi-Site EUC Systems

Topic: Virtual desktops improve productivity, security, and control — but building infrastructure for large-scale VMware End User Computing (EUC) deployments can be challenging. While some infrastructure approaches are limited in reliability or scale, this session will present a high-performance, highly available and easy to manage approach to VMware Workspace ONE and Horizon deployment with Pure Storage. In this session Pure Storage and VMware EUC architects will share test results and best practices from creating a multi-site replicated deployment of Workspace ONE, Horizon, and App Volumes. We'll discuss how IT can easily deploy, manage and scale performance with user demand, with a minimal amount of upkeep.

What we’ll answer:

Attendees of this webinar will learn how to deploy at scale a reliable high-productivity user workspaces. Expert speakers will present how to keep virtual desktops and applications online with minimal admin effort. Attendees will learn the most critical factors for a successful EUC deployment, particularly when setting up and synchronizing multiple sites.

Webcast: Rage Against the Virtual Machine: Comprehensive Monitoring of Your VMware Stack

Rage Against the Virtual Machine: Comprehensive Monitoring of Your VMware Stack

Topic: LogicMonitor will start off the presentation with a 10-15 minute overview of our platform. Our agentless SaaS offering is unique in the monitoring space, we’ll explain how this works and the benefits of this approach over traditional/legacy monitoring solutions. The LogicMonitor architecture enables rapid deployments with minimal user interaction, while still providing a wealth of customization and flexibility for those that need it.

We’ll then spend 10-15 minutes discussing LogicMonitor’s VMware-specific instrumentation, how it works, what’s unique about it. Once the basics are covered, we’ll hand off presentation to a LogicMonitor customer. They’ll talk about their business, how VMware helps them meet their objectives, and how LogicMonitor improves their VMware practice.

LogicMonitor will continue the conversation for another 10-15 minutes by explaining some of our newer features and how they apply to a VMware environment (Instance Properties, LM Config™, Alert Forecasting, etc). Then we’ll dive deeper to showcase the breadth of coverage provided by our LogicModules, explaining how comprehensive monitoring -- inclusive of server hardware (IPMI, Dell DRAC), storage systems (EMC/NetApp/HP/Dell/Pure/Nimble/etc.), networking devices (Cisco/Juniper/PaloAlto/etc.), ancillary services (Veeam), and the VMs themselves -- provide complete visibility. We’ll use this background to demonstrate real-life use cases where LogicMonitor can facilitate root cause analysis and considerably reduce mean-time-to-repair.

Webcast: Verifiably-Robust Virtual Data Protection

Verifiably-Robust Virtual Data Protection

Topic: Compass Health formed when several healthcare providers decided to consolidate and with consolidation came complexity. They needed one robust solution to protect its critical patient data in a highly-virtualized environment. They needed a solution that would allow for granular recovery and support the efficient, effective protection of virtualized data at a price point that wouldn’t break the bank.


Join this webcast to hear firsthand from VMUG member Carl Seabold why their organization chose Arcserve Unified Data Protection, over competitors like Veeam and Acronis, to solve their complex needs.

Webcast: DevOps: Not Just for Open Source and Unicorns

DevOps: Not Just for Open Source and Unicorns

Topic: DevOps is sweeping the IT industry like no other movement since server virtualization. It's changing the way IT is operating, how it delivers value, and the economics around IT. A prevailing view is that DevOps is only happening in the most open and unique places.

In this talk we will explore the variety of areas where DevOps is being applied successfully. I'll discus how the tools (VMware, PowerShell, Puppet) and frameworks that support our traditional VMware virtualized environment come to bear in this new framework. I'll dig deeper into the methodologies of DevOps and how they affect the way our virtual environments are managed and drive value. Once we reach the impressive summary slide, attendees should have a stronger view of how their skills apply in this new framework.
