Interop Theater Session
Automating Security Workflows: The SDDC Approach – Bruce Davie, CTO Networking
Wednesday, May 4 – 11:30 – 11:45 AM
Location: Interop Theater in Exhibit Hall
Abstract: Security in the data center today involves mapping policies to the network topology. This results in imperfect security (the network is under constant change), which is slow to deploy, and even slower to adapt when change is required. But what if it were possible to move away from the traditional source/destination way of describing policy? What if you knew deep information about every element in the data center and could take advantage of this “total inventory” to create better security policies that adapt automatically to changing conditions? With VMware NSX and its SDDC approach to network security, you can. This session will help you start this approach and start your journey to the SDDC.
Storage Vendor Tech Session
The Easiest Path to Hyperconvergence – Virtual SAN and VMware Hyper-Converged Software – Rawlinson Rivera, Principle Architect, Storage & Availability
Wednesday, May 4 – 3:00 – 3:45 PM
Location: Mandalay Bay L
Abstract: The ubiquitous use of server virtualization and the emergence of the cloud has increased end-user expectations for performance and responsiveness, while adding pressure on IT to lower costs and increase efficiency. Join us in this session to learn how you can easily and cost-effectively extend your virtualized datacenter into a hyper-converged architecture using VMware’s market-leading hypervisor, vSphere, and the hyper-converged storage solution, Virtual SAN. We’ll specifically examine how Virtual SAN is helping solve traditional IT and storage challenges through a flash-optimized, high performance architecture, unified management and the simplicity of consuming, operating and scaling infrastructure.
