Oh yeah ladies and gentleman, It’s time to get down!!! and #GetYourNerdOn in Las Vegas. VMworld 2017 is right around the corner. There are so many things to be excited about from all aspects of the industry. It will be great to see and catch up with friends and share ideas and learn from everyone attending the event.

For the past 6 years while at VMware I’ve deliver some pretty ground braking solutions and demonstrations which have been showcased during the executive keynotes. This year I have something very special and impactful that I will be showcasing and trust me when I say you do not want to miss it.

I will be presenting a couple sessions which I think that anyone that is interested on the hottest storage industry topic today “Hyperconverged Secondary Storage” should not miss. The sessions are filling up fast to make sure you sign up ASAP to reserve your spot:

Session ID: LHC3390BUS – Enable data mobility from on-premises to the cloud with Cohesity DataPlatform
Monday, Aug 28, 5:30PM – 6:30PM – Register Here
Enterprises are looking to leverage the public cloud to extend their private data centers for application mobility and data storage. But moving applications and managing data in the cloud is hard. Cohesity makes cloud easy! With Cohesity, enterprises can consolidate all their secondary data on one web-scale platform on-premises. Cohesity enables enterprises to seamlessly integrate with all the leading public clouds (Microsoft Azure, AWS, Google Cloud) and extend their data to the public cloud for archival, tiering and replication. Cohesity manages the data in the public cloud to support disaster recovery, provisioning of test/dev instances, and analytics. Attend this session to learn about how Cohesity’s cloud integration provides you with a hybrid cloud data protection and mobility strategy that spans on-premises and the cloud.

Session ID: PBO2073BU – Enterprise Protection and Reliability for VMware Cloud Foundation with Cohesity
Tuesday, Aug 29, 2:30PM – 3:30PM – Register Here
VMware Cloud Foundation unifies the most powerful software-defined data center platform in the enterprise that spans a common control plane for IT across private, public, and hybrid clouds. The infrastructure stack is composed of several virtual appliances that work together to provide the required services. To keep pace with escalating business demands for service availability, security, and recoverability, enterprise organizations need modern solutions capable of supporting service-oriented IT models that can provide protection and fast recovery for the VMware Cloud Foundation that can be leveraged in private, public, and hybrid clouds. While failures are a given in modern network infrastructures, lengthy outages are conditions that most modern enterprises running cannot tolerate in today’s economies. I will demonstrate something here that has never been done in an enterprise data center. You don’t want to miss it!!!

Session ID: VIRT1630BU – Wrangling and Taming Your Database’s Storage, Availability, and Disaster Recovery Monsters
Thursday, Aug 31, 10:30AM – 11:30AM – Register Here
Storage infrastructures can often be the most complex and confusing challenges faced by data professionals and architects in today’s enterprises. Every organization strives to achieve the right balance among the multitudes of necessary requirements to ensure optimal performance, security, reliability, availability, and (yes) protection of important data. Although failures are a given in modern network infrastructures, frequent and lengthy data/database performance degradation and outages are conditions that most modern enterprises cannot tolerate in today’s economies. This session provides a comprehensive discussion of the ways data professionals and architects can design a VMware vSphere infrastructure to provide the most resilient, risk-averse, and optimal designs for storage infrastructures and mission-critical databases.
