External Expert – Olayiwola Adeyemi, Solution Architect, Zeta-web Nigeria

Active Directory Domain Services (ADDS) is one of the most critical components of a Windows IT infrastructure. Most operations and functionalities in an Enterprise Microsoft Windows infrastructure depend on a robust, scalable, redundant and reliable Active Directory infrastructure. While most enterprises have adopted virtualization as the standard platform for their mission critical applications in production, many enterprise administrators and operators are still reluctant to virtualize Domain Controllers in their environments.

VMware’s Microsoft Applications Virtualization Lead (Deji Akomolafe) will deliver the workshop. He will take you through the journey of virtualizing AD DS, avoiding common pitfalls, and recovering from common failures and problems associated with running Active Directory Domain Services in your enterprises. Demos include hands-on troubleshooting, correction, stabilization and optimization of a defective AD DS forest and multiple domains. Topics include, virtualization and the AD DS Database, replication, time synchronization and convergence, Fault domains, common challenge and general Best Practices.

In the first part of this workshop, you will learn about the concepts of machine learning (ML), including inference and training, supervised and unsupervised learning, and deep learning. Bring your laptop to build a neural network model yourself. Gain an understanding of how ML works and what types of problems can be solved with these techniques. You will also see a demo of a data science automation tool to illustrate how ML is used by data scientists. The second part of the workshop will focus on the IT infrastructure needed to support ML, including a detailed discussion of the ways specialized hardware accelerators such as GPUs are enabled on VMware vSphere, along with a discussion of ML performance. Learn about the role of Apache Spark and Hadoop in supporting machine learning.
