“NSX is for Everyone” is the watchword for VMware’s SDDC drive with our customers. And VMware NSX is the fastest growing VMware technology since the introduction of ESX, over 10 years ago. NSX is the key technology for every business to unite their hybrid deployments and to partition their massively converged infrastructure for optimum value. Key to driving this capability in the inclusion of a robust ecosystem partners for security and network policy solutions. A new SDDC architecture to deliver on promises of better and more relevant security control is open to integration by technology partners.

How will this ecosystem be enabled through VMware? What solutions and services are NSX proven? How does a VMware technology alliance partner engage with VMware to envision, build and deliver for the NSX marketplace? Global Technology Alliances and Ecosystem Services are your VMware partners for an NSX Networking and Security Program. We will introduce you to the SDK and certification materials for NSX Advanced Services Insertion for Endpoint and Network. Find out from your alliance and ecosystem team, the qualifications for program participation and the structure of this partner program and deliverables. Start your path to NSX technology partnership with guidance from this session.

TAP3729 – SDDC Intelligent Operations Ecosystem – Monday, Oct 17, 5:15 p.m. – 6:15 p.m.

Bill Erdman, Senior Product Line Manager, VMware

As the scope of virtualization expands across the data center, including compute, network and storage abstractions, so does the need for integrated unified operations management.  The execution and delivery of this unified management, which VMware refers to as SDDC intelligent operations, requires a highly scalable core platform, a rich set of API’s, and a very engaged ecosystem. The benefit for customers is faster troubleshooting, quicker identification on the source of the issue, predictive analytics for mitigating issues related to capacity and performance, and integrated cost and ROI data for providing a business view on the IT assets being consumed.

VMware knows that it takes a village to offer this type of operation solution, and as result, VMware has several open SDDC operations management products in which ecosystem partners can integrate with. At this session interested ecosystem partners will be provided with an overview on how VMware is approaching SDDC intelligent operations, the core products offered here, several examples on how partners can integrate with this products, and references to the API’s in which partners can access through the VMware Technical Alliance Program (TAP).

VMware TAP Embedded OEM Q3 Webinar – September 21, 2016

Embedded OEM as a Route-to-Market

The TAP team, in conjunction with the Embedded OEM team,  will host a half-hour webinar on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at 9:00 am PDT. The VMware Embedded OEM team will provide an overview on a unique partner route-to-market enabling partners to sublicense, pre-install, redistribute, and support VMware products as part of a dedicated / turnkey OEM solution.

As a VMware Embedded OEM partner, you can:

  • Deliver more profitable customer solutions by combining VMware products with your software, hardware, or appliance offerings—whether they’re delivered on premise, via Software as a Service (SaaS), or as a managed service application.
  • Build turn-key solutions that accelerate time-to-market and are easier for end-customers to procure, install and manage.
  • Decrease your solution’s cost of goods sold, improve product lifecycles, and improve business continuity.
  • Deliver VMware product updates/upgrades and frontline support as a value-add service, and at a release cadence that matches your own timelines and roadmap.

VMware’s Embedded OEM partners span across global geographies and vertical markets, all leveraging a single direct contract agreement model which provides global sublicensing and distribution rights. For a brief overview of the program benefits and requirements, visit the dedicated Embedded OEM page.

Register today for this webinar to better understand and evaluate how this route can apply to your company’s strategic go-to-market priorities and goals.

Questions about this webinar or other TAP benefits should be directed to the TAP team via tapalliance@vmware.com or toll-free at 866-524-4966.

Why Horizon 7 on FlexPod?

In recent times, we have seen a great deal of value proposition around how Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) is becoming an ideal platform for hosting all types of workloads including desktop and application virtualization with Horizon 7. Certainly there are unique architectural HCI value propositions such as the collapsed stack providing an ease of initial deployment & ongoing management and policy-driven software-defined server-side storage. And there are a few others such as overall simplicity and pay as you grow options potentially reducing upfront CAPEX costs. And this certainly is driving the next wave of infrastructure platform decision making. As we know though, HCI is an evolution from Converged Infrastructure (CI) based architectures – where we started reaping the benefits of a validated and integrated stack for compute, storage and networking including management integrations. Added with the single vendor support and a modular architecture that fits the bill for all sizes and scale and workloads we have a common set of design principles between CI and HCI. So then specifically for a VDI deployment with Horizon 7, why deploy it on a CI stack such as FlexPod? Like a good consultant will tell you, the answer to this in most cases would be “it depends” on many factors. Let’s look at a few here:

  • FlexPod has a strong & mature ecosystem which you can leverage for your specific use cases with Horizon 7 – we looked at this here
  • Leveraging existing practices built around FlexPod where your teams are highly experienced in running your data center based on FlexPod design & implementation best practices
  • FlexPod provides desired scalability with a cost-performance balance for Horizon 7 for small to large size deployments linearly scaling the Horizon POD architecture to fit your future growth needs
  • Built on vSphere, FlexPod leverages storage, compute and management integrations allowing customers to protect existing investment for delivering VDI. These includes storage integrations such as VAAI, VASA and VVOLs and management integrations with vCenter and vRealize Operations
  • Scale-Out storage technologies with NetApp providing a similar notion to HCI where storage nodes are added as needed

In order to provide customers and partners with the continued best practices on FlexPod, NetApp team in partnership with Cisco & VMware have released two NetApp Validated Architectures (NVA) – Horizon 7 with FlexPod Design Guide and Horizon 7 with FlexPod Deployment Guide. Let’s look at some of the key highlights of this solution:

  • Deploy 2500 Horizon 7 desktops (1250 Linked Clones and 1250 Full clones) with NetApp All Flash FAS (AFF8080) and Cisco UCS B200 M4 and Nexus 9000 with proven performance results with Login VSI. In fact, systems resource utilizations are at 50% making storage and compute available for further expansion of your VDI environment
  • Impressive scalability & performance measured for delivering Windows 10 with Office 2016 with Horizon 7
  • Updated best practices for VMware, Cisco and NetApp products. For e.g. leveraging vCenter Appliance, iSCSI based boot from SAN and NFS datastore access protocol, networking with Nexus 9000s
  • Leverage vRealize Operations for integrated management of the environment leveraging management packs for Cisco UCS, NetApp storage and Horizon 7. With these management packs, customers can gain better visibility into the end to end FlexPod environment and perform key analytics on both virtual and physical infrastructures

In addition, FlexPod Datacenter design guide for vSphere 6 provides the foundational blueprint for running your virtualized infrastructure on a proven converged architecture. As vSphere continues to be the leading platform on FlexPod, and with VDI  being an ideal workload for a converged infrastructure, we continue to collaborate with FlexPod providing customers with a choice of building their VMware environments on a converged infrastructure of their choice.

Look forward to your comments & if visiting VMworld do visit NetApp for a deep-dive on these FlexPod with Horizon architectures.

Meet the Partner NSXperts – How and What to Plan for in your Network and Security Services – Panel Discussion with Q&A [TAP9777]

Sunday, Aug 28, 8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. | Islander G, Level 1, Mandalay Bay Convention Center

VMware NSX partner integration involves developing services and solutions that are a part of transforming the data center from a various collection of connected devices to a platform automating the service of business applications. The opportunity of this software defined approach to data center infrastructure comes as a challenge to the architecture that shaped legacy approaches and defined categories of services. How does a partner service for a virtual network in NSX differ from its physical counterpart, what new capabilities are offered and which assumptions are discarded when a decentralized and topology-neutral platform changes much of what defined product innovation in the past? How can you plan for a product that focuses on the business need for applications, and support needs for policy and operation? Understand what makes a good network and security service with Service Composition, Distributed Firewall and micro segmentation, horizontal scaling and unique introspection methods. Listen to a discussion and ask open questions, with technology owners and leaders for the NSX partner ecosystem.
