Are you considering VMware vSAN as the hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution for your environment? The key to achieving the best out of vSAN is correct sizing. In this session, we will talk about the entire workflow, from assessing your IT environment to efficiently sizing and getting hardware recommendations. We will demo the VMware HCI Assessment tool, which pulls HCI metrics based on IOPS, capacity, compute and more. Find out how assessment followed by sizing helps to size real-world environments. Learn about the new vSAN Sizer features, such as saving sizing projects, resource utilization customization, and importing assessment data. See how to use the vSAN Quick Sizer mobile app on the fly for scenarios such as reverse-sizing vSAN based on a fixed budget.

VMware vSphere 7 introduced an entirely new solution for unified software and firmware lifecycle management that is native to vSphere. vSphere Lifecycle Manager is a powerful new framework based on a desired state model to deliver simple, reliable and consistent lifecycle operations for vSphere and hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) clusters. We have brought this exciting new capability to you by partnering with our VMware vSAN ReadyNode server vendors for a simplistic yet integrated approach to updating firmware and software together—all from the comfort of VMware vCenter. If you want to learn how to simplify your next HCI upgrade, then you are in the right place.

Join Cormac Hogan and Duncan Epping as they discuss the new VMware vSAN 7.0 features. One of the major enhancements to vSAN 7.0 is the inclusion of file services. Now, vSAN can offer both block volumes and file shares to your applications. Not only that, with improvements made in the VMware vSphere Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver, containerized applications can request block-based Kubernetes Persistent Volumes and also dynamically request vSAN based file shares. Duncan and Cormac will take you through all of this, with lots of technical content and demos. This session should appeal to customers already using vSAN, as well as to customers considering vSAN. It should also be a useful session to customers researching how to provide storage for both virtual machine and containerized workloads.

VMware vSAN is the largest and fastest growing hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) product in the market today. vSAN has always been at the forefront of technology innovation. In this session, we will cover the enhancements in the latest vSAN release, and how vSAN interoperates with other products across the entire software-defined data center (SDDC) stack. You will learn about some of the coolest innovations in vSAN (VMware HCI Mesh, file services, VMware vSphere Lifecycle Manager, compression only) and advances in hardware enablement. We will also touch on some key management and monitoring enhancements, including how easy it is to install, manage and monitor vSAN for your daily operations. We will provide a demo of the newest features in core vSAN and full-stack HCI. This is one VMworld session you do not want to miss.

This top-rated session returns with all-new content on the internals of VMware vSAN, and takes a detailed technical view of the new and interesting ways VMware implements a distributed storage system. vSAN is built differently when compared to traditional storage systems, which gives it unprecedented capabilities and levels of flexibility. Learn about optimizations in the data path and the fascinating details behind our implementation of file services. This is your chance to better understand the reasons behind the vSAN architecture, and why it is the ideal storage platform for public clouds, such as VMware Cloud on AWS, and private clouds using VMware Cloud Foundation.

VMware vSphere now comes with an enriched storage control plane to provision and manage storage for containerized applications orchestrated by Kubernetes. In this session, you will learn how cloud native storage enables stateful applications running on Kubernetes to be deployed on the vSphere platform using any of the vSphere persistent storage options. Now, VI admins can easily manage containerized applications with the same operational consistency of managing virtualized applications. Using Kubernetes native CLI and VMware vCenter, you will see how storage can be deployed with policy-based management, how you can monitor these container volumes in vCenter, and how to remediate faults.
