Got the Performance Monitoring Blues
? Does your performance monitoring application make your vCenter Server crawl
to its knees ? Are you tired of staying up late waiting for inventory data to
come back ?
We have the cure for you !
The vSphere API Performance
Monitoring session is a great opportunity for you to come and learn about latest
counters and tips on collecting performance monitoring information. We will
also have an opportunity to come and meet the folks in what we call "The
Performance Round Table Discussion…" See you there..
Understand the features available to developers
via vSphere Web Services APIs to collect performance statistics and discuss
best practices in collecting performance data when using these APIs. This presentation is a must-attend for any
developer that retrieves performance information from the vSphere platform in
any large environment. While the content is advanced, developers new to the
platform should be able to follow most of it.
Here is another session update for Technology Exchange Developer Day.
The VIX APIs provide an easy-to-use, high-level
programming interface that combines virtual machine management operations with
actions in the guest operating system, such as running programs and copying
files to and from the guest. Users can leverage VIX to write scripts and
programs in C, Perl, C# or Visual Basic, and use a simple command-line tool for
writing shell scripts. This session will provide an overview of the VIX API,
along with detailed examples and demonstrations.
Matt LaMantia is the manager of the VIX API team at VMware, focusing on enabling users and independent software vendors to interface with VMware's platform offerings. Prior to
working at VMware, he was on the J2EE Server team at Art Technology Group and
the speech recognizer team at Dragon Systems, Inc. He received his MS in
engineering management at MIT in 2006 and a BA in computer science from Harvard
Matt Richards is a senior software engineer for VMware, where he is the
engineering lead for the VIX API. While at VMware, he has worked on areas
including platform scalability, product security, and API and protocol design.
He received his BS in computer science from Stanford University.
We are very excited to announce our session abstracts on "Integration Best Practices for vSphere Web Services SDK". This is one of our most popular
sessions as Balaji will go over some best practices learned from the trenches.
This is ideal for any developer building popular solutions for the vSphere
platform, monitoring, provisioning, reporting. Please let us know if you
would like to see anything specific in this topic and we can ask Balaji to
include it in the session. We will also have plenty of hands on demos, and time
to meet the folks and ask questions. Look forward to seeing you there.
vSphere Web Services APIs provide the interfaces
to programmatically manage the vSphere platform. As with any SDK, there are
many subtleties associated with the vSphere API usage as well. This session
explains the best practices with specific use cases, with special focus on the new
features introduced in SDK 4.0. Application designers and developers will find
the content quite useful in various usage scenarios. This is an advanced level
session, so it assumes that the attendees have some familiarity with the SDK.

Web Services SDK 4.0 & New Features is going to be one of the exciting sessions at Technology Exchange Developer Day. It will be a great opportunity to get an up close view on APIs that are either new to vSphere 4.0 or enable tighter integration with vCenter, HA, DRS and virtual machine automation. In the words of the presenter Balaji Parimi, “This is a must-attend session for developers new to VMware
platform”. Balaji has been with VMware for 2 years focused on helping partners create solutions
based on the vSphere platform.
The upcoming Developer Day is a great opportunity to hear about vCloud APIs and meet some of the key members from the R&D team. Hope to see you there.

Session ID DE-03 Abstract
VMware's vCloud API is a key element of VMware's vision for fostering a Cloud ecosystem of Service Providers, Enterprises, ISVs and VARs.The API enables provisioning and consumption of resources in the Cloud, management and publishing of VMs in the Cloud, as well as migration of VMs between internal and external Clouds. In this session, we will get into some details of the API and explore a few usage scenarios. The audience should walk away with an understanding of how the API fits within VMware's overall Cloud vision, what problem areas it addresses and the key concepts it exposes.

Hello, I wanted to take a moment to
introduce myself. I manage the Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program; where
vendors can certify or validate their product with VMware and then take
advantage of various co-marketing activities. I’ve been with VMware for 3 years
(to the day!) and it’s been quite a ride… started with just 50 TAP partners and we
are at over 1100 today.
I will be blogging from time to time
to share tips on how to successfully partner with VMware. I’d also love to get
your feedback. This all Pablo’s fault by the way. He cornered me at the last
VMware happy hour and suggested that developers need to hear more from me. I
took the time to listen because he offered me a free cocktail… albeit a
Mint-less Julep (the bar ran out of mint… also Pablo is from the west coast and
doesn’t know any better). It struck me as we were talking, that not engaging
with the developer community is sort of like a Mint-less Julep… it doesn’t make
sense. Developers are out there creating excellent solutions for our customers,
and they need to learn about partnering opportunities. So I’m here to change
To start, I wanted to let you know
that as of Monday July 13th, TAP members will receive access to a new
and improved partner portal with great content on benefits like how to build a
solution brief with VMware, how to post an entry in the product catalog, etc. .
If you are interested in learning more, please join our webinar later this
month where we will demo the site. You don’t have to be a TAP member to
attend. Details below:
As a supplement to
the general training on how to use the new
Partner Central, the TAP team will do a quick run-through of the site,
specifically for TAP members—showing you where everything is since we've
migrated to the new system.
