The last few weeks have flown by for me. After returning from Japan to welcome warm weather here in North Carolina, now it would also seem the conference season is in full-swing! (creeps up on us every year).
A couple weeks ago, NetApp submitted abstracts for VMworld "Call for Papers". Now the abstracts have been released for public session voting. I have two sessions in the mix this year:
Session 5400 will be lead by Chris Gebhardt, my colleague on the VMware TME team. I will co-present with him on the Horizon Workspace integrations with NetApp. Here is the abstract:
Horizon View Virtual desktop deployments have traditionally been the most difficult workloads for storage. In this session attendees will learn how seemingly insignificant design decisions can have a great impact on end-user experience and solution scalability. Attendees will learn how VMware Horizon View & Workspace storage integrations can help customers reduce the size, cost, and complexity of VMware Horizon environments. We will demonstrate how desktop administrators can take advantage of these technology integrations without changing their existing desktop management workflows. We will also cover common storage pitfalls, and how to avoid them; proper solution analysis, architecture and sizing, and design decisions.
Session 5501 will be lead by Mac Binesh, Director of Horizon Performance at VMware, with me as co-presenter. The abstract for that session is as follows:
This session will feature a technical deep dive into the architecture, deployment topologies and best practices for Horizon Workspace, from software to storage. Attendees will gain a better understanding of ways to deploy for best performance, data protection, efficiency and security. Attend this session to get a better understanding of the EUC solution and it's enterprise file sharing capabilities as the preferred solution in the industry.
Go out there and vote today... let your voice be heard. See you all at VMworld!
