We’ve listed some of the highlights below, and you can see the full list of sessions on the VMworld Europe website.


Technology Alliance Partner Highlight Sessions at VMworld Europe

App Failover on VMware Cloud on AWS Protected by LicenseFortress [VAP1088BE]

Learn how we developed a full application stack failover between an on-premises VMware environment and VMware Cloud on AWS, using multiple methods for business continuity. Discover the best practices for setting up such a business continuity strategy, as well as the pitfalls to avoid.

Running CI/CD with PKS [CODE5631E]

Gartner says by 2020, a corporate “No-Cloud” policy will be as rare as a “No-Internet” policy today. By 2019, more than 30 percent of the largest 100 vendors’ new software investments will have shifted from cloud-first to cloud-only. A cloud strategy is critical for your business to remain competitive and realize the benefits of agility, availability, business continuity, scalability, and cost reduction. In particular, businesses should consider their software delivery process as a prime candidate for migration the cloud. This session will demonstrate how your Jenkins continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) process can be moved to the cloud using Pivotal Container Service (PKS) on Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF).

The New Era of Cloud Data Management [MGT1076BES]

The more customers turn to the public cloud for computing and storage, the more complicated data protection and data management becomes. Join this session to learn how to overcome these problems with a service that already lives in, and understands the cloud. Druva offers Data Protection and Data Management as a Service (DMaas), protecting data centers, laptops, SaaS services, and cloud workloads via a single pane of glass. Druva’s service offers enterprise data protection, governance and intelligence – dramatically increasing the availability and visibility of business-critical information, while reducing risk, cost and complexity of managing and protecting it.


W. Curtis Preston, Chief Technologist, Druva
Tuesday, Nov 6, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Veeam and VMware – Intelligent Data Management for a Hybrid World [HYP1005BES]

In this session, Veeam will showcase the availability solutions within VMware Cloud on AWS encompassing intelligent data management to and from the Software Defined Data Center. This includes the orchestration of backup resources using Infrastructure as Code tied in with native AWS features, as well as use of Veeam Data Labs to automate the leveraging of data for business requirements and needs. We will also look at how to leverage Veeam Availability Orchestrator for advanced business continuity for applications, using VMware Cloud as a replication target. This session also includes a sneak peek of our new vCloud Directory integration with Veeam Cloud Connect Replication.

Check Point CloudGuard and VMware NSX – Advanced SDDC Security [SPL-1924-01-NET_E]

Check Point CloudGuard integration with VMware NSX enables complementary, advanced security capabilities in VMware SDDCs. CloudGuard enhances the distributed firewall services provided by NSX DFW with a next generation firewall, application and data security, advanced threat prevention, and forensics analysis. Check Point Security Management enables seamless management of physical and virtual Check Point appliance gateways along with compatibility across the VMware suite of operations-focused products.

Practical Guide for Delivering Advanced Security at Scale and Speed in SDDC [HYP1022BES]

Join us for an interactive best-practices approach to building advanced threat prevention security into SDDCs without compromise. The SDDC is transforming modern data center designs and ushering in a new era of business agility and network automation. While the SDDC provides the foundation for inherently better security, there are no native tools within the SDDC to distinguish malicious content from benign – allowing for the lateral spread of any threat once introduced into the network. In this session, we will break down real-world examples of threats affecting modern data centers and provide guidance on how to leverage our CloudGuard IaaS solution to achieve security at speed and scale, leveraging the native automation and orchestration tools of the VMware SDDC.

You can Still get Burned When it’s Cloudy [NET1020BES]

Hybrid cloud adoption among organizations of all sizes is skyrocketing. At the same time, the number of attacks against cloud infrastructure has also risen dramatically. It is more important than ever to ensure your cloud assets and data are protected against even the most sophisticated threats while maintaining the speed and agility benefits that cloud infrastructure delivers. Join Check Point security specialists for an informative and interactive session about the risks and challenges of cloud usage and how to leverage advanced threat prevention security, a critical component of your cloud adoption strategy. During this session, we will highlight:

• The latest cloud challenges and risks
• Anatomy of cloud attacks and how they could have been prevented
• Best practices approach to securing cloud environments

Mind the Gap: Building a Closer Relationship Between Security and DevOps [DEV1031BES]

Today’s IT business model, rooted in enabling business agility, demands that cybersecurity keep pace with the velocity of the cloud. Securing the speed of the cloud requires not only understanding what is technically different about today’s data center but also fully embracing and exploiting the benefits of DevOps as a means to codify cybersecurity practices and controls. Hear recent research findings from Enterprise Strategy Group on why decentralization and automation necessitate an evolved approach to securing hybrid clouds and how to build a closer relationship between security and DevOps. Learn why the changes that hybrid clouds bring to business models, methodologies, and technologies represent an opportunity to efficiently improve an organization’s cybersecurity posture while also enabling the speed of business.
