My VMworld Presentations
I plan to deliver the following three presentations at VMworld next week in the Rackspace Booth.
Upgrade to vCenter Site Recovery Manager 6.0 and vSphere Replication 6.0: Four Keys to Success.
Date / Time: Monday – August 31 11:30 AM (Pacific Time)
You currently rely on a successfully implemented disaster recovery (DR) solution built upon vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) 5.5 and vSphere Replication 5.5; but, due to its complexity and the perceived risks, you avoided upgrading to version 5.8. Now, version 6.0 is available with features you want. How do you successfully upgrade your DR solution, while minimizing risk and disruption?
Engage with a Senior Integration Consultant from Rackspace to learn the 4 Keys to success for upgrading SRM and vSphere Replication, such as avoiding common pitfalls, selecting the best upgrade path, establishing a rollback plan and implementing new features.
How to Design a Reliable Disaster Recovery Solution: The Keys to Success
Date / Time: Tuesday – September 1 – 3:30 PM (Pacific Time)
You are finally ready to design a new disaster recovery (DR) solution, but you do not know where to start. Everyone tells you that they have the solution that can provide DR for your vSphere environment, where most of your applications run, but which solution is right for you?
Join with a Senior Integration Consultant from Rackspace to learn how to design a reliable DR solution that is not focused on a product, but focused on your unique requirements. Learn the keys for a successful design: Simple design methodology, resiliency /manageability, application details, recovery plans., success criteria and non-disruptive testing.
VMware vRealize Operations: Using Out-of-the-box Actions and the vRO Solution and Workflow Package
Date / Time: Wednesday – September 2 – 1:30 PM (Pacific Time)
VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) 6.0 uses the concept of symptoms, recommendations, and actions to enable you to monitor, analyze, and remediate issues in your vSphere environment. Out of the box, it provides powerful functionality that helps reduce the mean time for identification and resolution of problems. In this session, you will see how to customize alerts and recommendations in vROps by assigning built-in actions, such as deleting snapshots, powering off virtual machines, and changing resource usage to address common issues. Additionally, you will see how easily you can extend the power of automating remediation by implementing the vRealize Orchestration (vRO) Solution and Workflow Package for vROps, which includes popular actions such as decommissioning hosts, migrating virtual machines, and upgrading VMware Tools.
