5431 Scaleable Database as a Service for the All Flash Software Defined Datacenter with VMware Integrated OpenStack(VIO) and Trove



Redefine your virtualized environment or Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud into a scalable and highly elastic database as a service platform. Deliver a fully managed and scalable relational or NoSQL database-as-a-service by easily integrating Trove with VIO and EMC XtremIO. Large Enterprise customers that have grown in a non structured approach require a common interface to the myriad internal cloud platforms. The OpenStack interface provides a set of common APIs which developers can programmatically deploy and manage virtual workloads. The VMware Integrated OpenStack provides an orchestrated workflow for the deployment and configuration of the various capability areas within Openstack. Trove is OpenStack’s implementation of a scalable and reliable cloud database service providing functionality for both relational and non-relational database engines. We will present best practices for deploying the Cassandra NoSQL engine on this platform as well as testing results demonstrating key metrics that will be of interest to customers and service providers alike. Trove automates the configuration and provisioning of new database servers. This includes deployment, configuration, patching, backups, restores, and monitoring. The XtremIO all flash storage rounds out the capabilities by providing superior performance, rich set of copy services and the ability for failover and replication.

5720 Architecting All-Flash Storage for Private Cloud- a Clean-Slate Approach to Realize Unprecedented Agility, Efficiency and Performance


Flash is rapidly gaining popularity as viable high-performance data center storage. But not all flash storage platforms are created equal. Many vendors replace spinning media with flash drives in a legacy storage architecture. This is an easy but sub-optimal approach. Flash is fundamentally different than spinning media and needs a fresh approach to take benefits of flash technology capabilities. In this session we will explore some of the critical architectural tenets for getting the most out of flash storage. You will learn how scale-out architecture, in-memory metadata, smart data reduction, and inline always-on data services can help transform your infrastructure and ensure consistent high IO performance for all workloads, lower your infrastructure footprint and TCO, and enable agile service delivery.

5731 Reimagine Mixed Workload Consolidation- Break the Traditional Infrastructure Barriers

Virtualizing all of the applications, mission critical and non-mission critical, has been an unattainable goal for many IT organizations. But with the right storage architecture and hypervisor integrations, you now can. You can realize exceptional infrastructure and application agility by consolidating workloads of mixed characteristics and of varying criticality. You can scale your environment non-disruptively and cost-efficiently to meet the needs of enterprises small and large. You can safely consolidate production, test, development, QA and analytics environments on a common platform while compromising no production performance and with marginally incremental capacity consumption. We will explore real life examples demonstrating how many IT organizations have broken the traditional storage barriers. You will learn about the key architectural elements that can ensure consistent predictable IO performance to help you meet and beat the strictest performance SLAs while lowering the total cost and complexity of your infrastructure and application lifecycle

5740 Best Practices for Running Virtualized Workloads on XtremIO

Great, you customer have just purchased a shiny new all flash array (AFA), now what? In this session we will learn the reasons for one of the quickest revolutions that the storage industry has seen in the last 20 years, and how XtremIO can enable breakthrough capabilities for your server virtualization and private cloud deployments. We will go trough specific use case issues and how to overcome them. With lots of real-world tips and tricks, you can consolidate your most demanding virtualization workloads successfully and gracefully.

5747 VMware’s Internal Private Cloud – Choosing the Right Storage to Meet User Demands

VMware has embarked on a Private Cloud initiative during the last 5 years. From a humble infrastructure, hosting a few VMs it has now grown to host more than 200k VMs, that is supported 24 x7, year around, across multiple geographies. A very diverse sets of business units consume a smorgasbord of Applications & Data from the platform. The internal private cloud initiative at Vmware is at the core of providing an agile datacenter to meet the various demanding business needs of our end users. This session will explore the lessons learned in selecting the right storage infrastructure. It will dive into the role cutting edge technologies like EMC XtremIO (All Flash Array) plays to meet the demanding requirements. Hands on experts who build, operate and manage the private cloud will share their best practices, tricks and techniques they have perfected over the last 5 years. Learn from the architects the storage optimizations, fine-tuning and configurations that you will need to scale your Private Cloud.

5755 Revisiting EUC Storage Design in 2015 – Perspectives from VMware EUC Office of the CTO

Storage landscape of EUC has changed a lot in the last 5 years. The latest generation of EUC software, along with the advent of purpose-built all-flash arrays, software-defined storage, latest generations of hybrid arrays, have all helped mainstream the EUC/VDI technology in IT.

4560 Re-Imagining your Virtualized Workloads with FLASH

Re-imagining your virtualized workloads with FLASH Moore’s law changed everything, compute and network started to get faster and faster and the only kid that left alone was the storage. storage was always considered as the last frontier for virtualized workloads, as a customer, you had to adopt to its limitations instead of it answering your business demands, no more! in this session you will hear why customers decided to go all in for an all flash array, what was their motivation and even concerns of doing so and how did it all changed for them once they did.

4916 Virtualized Oracle On All-Flash: A Customer’s Perceptive on Database Performance and Operations

In tIn the virtualized infrastructure the new technology wave is all-flash arrays. But today all administrators (virtual, storage, DBA) need to know how changing an essential part of the virtual infrastructure impacts critical applications like Oracle databases. This joint customer and XtremIO presentation acts as a practical guide to using all-flash storage in a virtualized infrastructure. The emphasis will be on value realized by a customer using all-flash together with findings from third party test reports by Principled Technologies. You will learn how all-flash storage is changing performance intensive applications like virtualized databases.

5652 Best Practices & Considerations for the Sizing and Deployment of 3D Graphics Intensive Horizon View 6 Desktops in an All Flash Datacenter

An all-flash datacenter hosting a VMware vSphere infrastructure with NVIDIA GRID can be used to deliver a robust and wide ranging set of graphics accelerated capabilities to end-users. NVIDIA GRID technology offers maximal choice in terms of both user density and GPU resource allocation. GRID vGPU can be used to handle the vast majority of both vSGA or vDGA use cases, allowing the infrastructure administrator to support a wide spectrum of virtualized resource options on a much reduced hardware set. To ensure the best end-user experience, and maintain a effective and efficient deployment, it is required that the infrastructure administrator be knowledgeable of the various graphics accelerated user profiles with their corresponding application and vGPU requirements. Information detailing the server-side considerations involved in the sizing exercise are generally available and so-far, somewhat understood. The corresponding storage-side requirements for the various configuration options and use-cases are not. This presentation will address both server and storage sizing considerations, and aim to offer a more complete knowledge-set to be used in the successful sizing of graphics accelerated VMware Horizon 6 DaaS projects.
