Architect Your Business-Critical Databases for Performance on Hyper-Converged Infrastructure [VIRT1219QU]
Mission-critical and business-demanding databases require the right architecture to satisfy SLAs, high availability, and disaster recovery requirements for your critical IT operational data environment. The ability to scale up these environments, provide the level of performance required by OLTP, and provide adequate resources is a significant operational challenge. The HPE infrastructure is ideally suited for solving the scalability and performance needs of your OLTP and OLAP workload environments, allowing a single hardware platform to be logically partitioned to support multiple environments and workloads with dynamic allocation of processors, memory, and storage needs of each environment over time.
Use Schedule Builder to add the above session [VIRT1219QU] to your conference agenda and stop by booth #600 to engage with HPE subject matter experts. Visit the HPE @ VMworld page to stay current on all HPE activities throughout the entire VMworld conference.
