One of the best things about
VMworld in addition to meeting all the great folks and seeing the new tech, is
undoubtedly the hands on lab sessions. I've already spent some time here at Barcelona
going through the VMware hands on labs (excellent as always) and particularly
enjoyed the Site Recovery Manager with vCloud workaround.
As good as they are though I
couldn't help but get "uber" excited over the incredibly cool demos
that were being set up by my colleagues at VCE.
Without giving away too much here's
a quick summary of what you can expect at the VCE booth P205 at the Solutions
Demo Pod 1: Mission
Critical Business Continuity (Demo w/EMC and Cisco)
- Here we’ll be demonstrating how
the Vblock integrates with VPLEX using Cisco’s OTV technology
- There will be a demonstration of
zero-disruption business continuity with VPLEX as well as a showcase of how to
attain a comprehensive backup, disaster avoidance and recovery strategy
Demo Pod 2:
- Those who are considering VDI
should check out VCE's FastPath demo. - This is VDI Automation for those
that want rapid virtual desktop deployment without the associated risk
- There will also be a
demonstration on Mobile Secure Desktop as well as our AlwaysOn Point
of Care solution for mission critical desktops.
Demo Pod 3: Vblock Management and
- With Vblock you instantly get the
infrastructure but to take it further up the stack we are demonstrating how we
integrate with the M&O solutions. We’ll be demonstrating how Cisco
Intelligent Automation for Cloud, VMware Cloud Director, Vmware
vCenter Orchestrator and Vmware vCenter Operations can integrate with the
Vblock to provide end users that Public Cloud experience.
Demo Pod 4: Vblock
- So you've got a Vblock or
thinking of getting one? Well how do you back it up seamlessly and still get
that unique single support model? In this demo we'll be looking at how
Avamar and DataDomain integrate with the Vblock to provide system &
software backup optimized for VMware. We'll be showcasing deduplication & replication
of structured data as well as a business continuity & workload mobility
So if you're at VMworld get to
booth P205, you'll be able to touch, feel and see a Vblock as well as see some
of its amazing capabilities.
