TAP3730 – “I Want to Be an NSX Technology Partner” – Use Cases, Program and Enablement for the Security and Network Ecosystem – Monday, Oct 17, 2:45 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.
Iris Avidan, Staff Program Manager, VMware
Jeremiah Cornelius, Security Architect – Partner Product Strategist, VMware
“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).
