Pure Storage Webcast Series (1 of 3): ESXi Storage Capacity Reclamation (UNMAP) Deep Dive

Pure Storage Webcast Series (1 of 3): ESXi Storage Capacity Reclamation (UNMAP) Deep Dive

Topic: VMware ESXi-based environments are becoming increasingly dynamic as virtual machines are being created, copied, destroyed and changed constantly for the purposes of development, testing and X-as-a-Service environments. When you delete space in a virtual machine, or an entire virtual disk, or an entire virtual machine, you create dead space. With data reducing all-flash-arrays becoming a norm, the concept of space reclamation AKA UNMAP is becoming particularly important. Making your storage footprint as small and efficient as possible is integral to running a lean infrastructure. This session will go deep into space reclamation in VMware ESXi environments. Understand the what, how, why and when of VMFS UNMAP and In-Guest UNMAP with a focus on new UNMAP support in vSphere 6.5. Learn how to get your space back quickly and effectively.

Reduxio Webcast Series (2 of 4): Weathering the Storm: How to Handle VDI Boot Storms With Ease

Reduxio Webcast Series (2 of 4): Weathering the Storm: How to Handle VDI Boot Storms With Ease

Topic: Monday at 8 AM. The perfect storm is brewing. Your virtual desktop implementation (VDI) project is running into a resource rush again. The start of the week comes to a grinding halt as your individual desktop environments boot their operating systems—joining together to consume massive amounts of disk reads and CPU cycles. The classic boot storm has been around for a while, but continues to plague VDI environments. Legacy storage vendors have tried to address the issue with Flash-based solutions, only managing marginal improvements in processing times at a high cost. With this in mind, Reduxio, the innovation leader in unified data storage management and protection solutions for the enterprise, VMware User Group (VMUG) are presenting, “Weathering the Storm: How to Handle VDI Boot Storms With Ease.” The webinar is designed with a 360-degree view into the topic—delivering three, distinct perspectives—from the vendor, the analyst, and the user perspective to explore a new approach to addressing VDI boot storms in a more unified and cost effective way.

Moderated by: Mike Grandinetti, Chief Marketing and Corporate Strategy Officer at Reduxio

Guest VM User: Steve Kwiatek, Network Administrator, Manchester Essex Regional School District

Guest Subject Matter Expert: Stuart Miniman, Senior Analyst- SiliconANGLE Media & Co-Host of the Cube

Webcast: Ensuring On-premise Levels of Security in the vCloud

Ensuring On-premise Levels of Security in the vCloud

Topic: Customers moving to the cloud understandably have security concerns and want to ensure that the security features they have spent time deploying on-premises – encryption, vulnerability scanning, intrusion detection, firewall blocking, anti-malware and more – continue to protect their apps and data in the cloud. Added to this challenge is the increasing importance of having visibility into cloud security and the reporting capabilities needed to prove cloud environments are secure and resilient enough to meet compliance regulations. During this webinar, iland will take a deep dive into cloud security; demonstrating the iland Secure Cloud Console which integrates VMware vCloud management with best-of-breed security features from Cisco, TrendMicro, Nimble and Tenable combined with on-demand security reporting to ease the security concerns surrounding cloud migrations.

Pure Storage Webcast Series (2 of 3): Best Practices for All-Flash Arrays with VMware vSphere


Pure Storage Webcast Series (2 of 3): Best Practices for All-Flash Arrays with VMware vSphere

Topic: All-flash arrays are now commonplace in today's data centers, and understanding how to configure and manage VMware vSphere to take advantage of them, in both performance and capacity, is critical. The concept of all-flash and, in particular data reduction, changes how some traditional options inside of VMware ESXi should be considered. Topics such as queuing, space reclamation, Storage I/O Control, VMware vSphere Storage DRS, VMware vSphere VMFS 6, virtual disk choice, multipathing, quality of service, and more will discussed.

Pure Storage Webcast Series (3 of 3): Deep Dive into vSphere 6.5 Core Storage Features and Functionality


Pure Storage Webcast Series (3 of 3): Deep Dive into vSphere 6.5 Core Storage Features and Functionality

Topic: In this session, we will cover a slew of new features and functionalities that were included in the VMware vSphere 6.5 release. These include, but are not limited to, VMware vSphere VMFS 6, automated UNMAP, policy-driven storage I/O control and virtual machine encryption, and enhancements to iSCSI and NFS. This will be a lead-by-example breakout session during which the speakers will demonstrate how to utilize these new features and, more importantly, highlight their benefits. We will also demonstrate the performance benefits of these new features by comparing them to previous versions of vSphere and VMFS.
