This year is my 6th to have the honor of speaking at the HP Discover conference.

Session time:

Wednesday, June 11, 2014
9 am – 10 am Pacific Standard Time (12:00 PM – 1 PM Eastern Standard Time).
Room: Lando 4202.

My presentation number is TB3306 and it is called “Tips and tricks on building VMware vSphere 5.5 with BladeSystem, Virtual Connect, and HP 3PAR StoreServ storage”

This tips-and-techniques session is for administrators and consultants who want to implement VMware ESXi 5.5 (vSphere) on HP c-Class BladeSystem, Virtual Connect, and HP 3PAR StoreServ storage. New topics will include the auto-deployment of domain configurations and Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) for bypassing vSwitches. The session will focus on real-world examples of VMware and HP best practices. For example, you will learn how to load-balance SAN paths; make Virtual Connect really “connect” to Cisco IP switches in a true active/active fashion; configure VLANs for the Virtual Connect modules and virtual switches; solve firmware and driver problems. In addition, you will receive tips on how to make sound design decisions for iSCSI vs. Fibre Channel, and boot from SAN vs. local boot. To get the most from this session, we recommend attendees have a basic understanding of VMware ESX, HP c-Class BladeSystem, and Virtual Connect.
