VMware is working on a low level failsafe mechanism to allow hot swap of PCIe devices without the need to reboot servers. This is especially important for devices that have less endurance like PCIe SSDs. In this session, we will introduce the background for this future capability and discuss the architecture for hot-plug capable drivers. We hope that through this session, our partners can better understand how they can make their their future PCIe devices hot-plug capable. We hope that through this session, our partner can get to know more about our new driver model in vSphere 2013, as well as the key points to make their driver capable of doing PCIe hot swap.

TEX5485 – Building a Validation Factory for VMware Partners
As vSphere adoption becomes more ubiquitous with our partners, we see more need to validate the entire portfolio of applications from a vendor, so they can strategically align their entire product towards the world of virtualization. In this talk, we discuss technical and procedural elements of achieving such a “Validation Factory”. Initially, we outline the need we see in our partners for this service, and what org chart can best service the need. Then we drill into the more technical aspects of how to prioritize lab work to quickly provide our mutual customers with the information they need to be successful. Finally we drill down into one of the most demanding vertical markets where this demand is high – Telecom. We highlight common challenges around Telco performance and availability, and show how efficient testing programs can address those needs today and in the future.
See you at VMworld!
