Join vExperts Ravi Venkat and Cody Hosterman for a technical discussion on flash storage best practices for vSphere and Horizon. This session will also highlight real-world user outcomes, technology demonstrations, and previews of Pure Storage and VMware technologies. Included will be the impact of virtual disk formats on performance, migrations and clones, data reduction technologies from virtual disks to datastores to flash with new capabilities like end-to-end T10 UNMAP, performance optimization, multipathing and network considerations for fibre channel and iSCSI, new SIOC settings for per-VM QoS, SRM and data protection, and what is possible with VVOLs on Pure Storage. A case study will be presented of an actual data center that has converted to flash storage with vSphere and it’s measurable outcomes. Flash is fast – but there’s much more to gain beyond performance. This session will help you maximize your cloud’s capabilities while reducing data center resources and radically simplifying your vSphere environment. Flash is quickly becoming the new storage foundation powering private and public clouds around the globe – this session will prep you to understand why.
