This year is my 5th to have the honor of speaking at the HP Discover conference.

Session time:

Wednesday, June 12, 2013
4:30 PM – 5:30 PM Pacific Standard Time (7:30 PM – 8:30 PM Eastern Standard Time).

My presentation is called “TB2603 – Building VMware vSphere 5.1 with blades, Virtual Connect and EVA.”

The session will discuss how VMware ESXi 5.1 (vSphere) can be implemented on HP c-Class blades, Virtual Connect and EVA, as well as the Flex-10/10D module and WS460c Gen8 blade with eight GPUs. The presentation will focus on real-world VMware and HP best practices, including how to load balance storage area network paths, how to make Virtual Connect really “connect” to Cisco Internet protocol switches, how to configure virtual local area networks for the Virtual Connect modules and VMware virtual switches and how to solve firmware and driver headaches with Virtual Connect and ESXi 5.1. Attendees will also receive tips on design decisions. A basic understanding of VMware, c-Class blades and Virtual Connect is recommended.
