VMWorld 2014 General Session Day 2

ShareIT

Good morning from San Francisco, we are ready to bring you VMWorld 2014 General Session 2 live. Yesterday was a pretty exciting day focus on the Software-defined Data center (SDDC). Today should be End-User computing focused.

T-30 for it to start.

T-15, a series of partners such as EMC, Cisco, HP commercials are being displayed on the big screens

T-5, the announcer just asked us to take our seats and silent our mobile devices.

Lights dimmed down and as yesterday the disclaimer came up

First one up Ben Fathi VMWare CTO

We are going over a recap from yesterday

The power of “&” is what Ben is talking about

SDDC is an architecture, a suite of tools in the cloud to deliver, manage and consume resources.

Now up Sanjay Poonen, EUC Vice President as expected to talk about EUC

Sanjay is mentioned how much software there is in cars today and how VMWare is setting up themselves to delivery resources a light speed.

Three pillars for EUC

IMG_0231.JPG

He is saying that Horizon 6 is a unified solution for VDI and App publishing, different from the competition (Citrix), not sure this is completely true. You still have Horizon and View

A video of an ew partnership between VMWare, nVidia and Google is up on the screens. It is a movie full HD movie running at the datacenter and 3D applications on a Chromebook.

Now mobility and their integration with Airwatch

Sanjay just asked how many people uses SAP, a few hands went up and he claims 50% of the attendees… a lot of laughs on that comment
They are talking about the SAP and AirWatch integration

Content-Collaboration, information should available anywhere on any device. I have heard that comment a few times during this conference. Didn’t #Citrix used that during the last… 10+ years

IMG_0237.JPG

Workspace suite takes all pillars and put them together as a single offer for VMWare customers

Now up EUC – CTO Kit Colbert

IMG_0240.JPG

How is EUC changing the way we work

IMG_0241.JPG

Kit is now taking us through a “day-in-the-life” of a doctor; it is a kind of demo but just with screenshots not a full demo like some of us are used to. A demo should have the devices in front of the attendees, not just ppts or someone driving behind the scenes

The demo continues showing how users can signup to for applications that are not locally installed, go to a web browser and subscribe to applications, application delivery for desktops is the technology behind this.

Project Fargo delivers capabilities to deliver desktops 30X faster, cloning live machines and applying customizations to individualize the new machine. This is something to check out when it comes out. Interesting technology

Just-in-time Desktops, based on cloud technologies

IMG_0243.JPG

They demoed how to delivered “tons of applications” using cloudVolumes but I was hoping for a little more details

That was it for EUC, very light to my taste. Moving on to SDDC

Now Raghu Raghuram – SDDC VP

IMG_0244.JPG

Raghu is talking about the SDDC Momentum on NSX and management

IMG_0245.JPG

Hyper-converged infrastructure… I think Nutanix is having some competition now. Check out my breakout session blog post. There is a lot information about EVO-Rail there.

A few jokes are going on about what can be done in 15 minutes, some reference to the insurance company, people laughs.

15 minutes is the time VMware claims that EVO-Rail will take to be up and running, one 2U appliance, 4 nodes, 100 VMs.

Want data center scale, EVO Rack. 20% of the hands-on labs here at VMWorld are running on EVO-Rack

VMWare contributing to OpenStack. According to Raghu the best way to run OpenStack is with VMWare

IMG_0247.JPG

Partner distribution of OpenStack will work on VMWare

IMG_0248.JPG

vSphere 6 innovations – in beta now
cross vCenter vMotion is pretty cool, with NSX no need to change network configuration

IMG_0252.JPG

Cloud-native apps are getting help from containers and helping to move applications between the local data center and the cloud.
Containers without compromise are going to be a key part of the SDDC, one platform for any application

IMG_0253.JPG

vRealize Suite, to manage your cloud resources. Available as an on-prem or SaaS in vCloud Air

IMG_0254.JPG

Policies are the base of the vRealize management suite

IMG_0255.JPG

They are demoing the policies now

IMG_0256.JPG

Polices are then translated on vCenter-vSphere and other components and configurations

IMG_0258.JPG

IMG_0259.JPG

To control communications inside of your data center, NSX has implemented micro-segmentation. Take control of your data center before malware does

IMG_0261.JPG

IMG_0262.JPG

The architecture for today AND tomorrow

IMG_0263.JPG

Now to talk about Hybrid-cloud Simone Brunozzi Chief Technologist wearing google glass

IMG_0264.JPG

We are seeing demos of a couple vmware tools and how they are integrated with vCloud Air to extend capacity from the in-house data center to the cloud.

IMG_0265.JPG

IMG_0266.JPG

the demo is moving the local Lync implementation to the cloud with just a few clicks.

IMG_0267.JPG

How is this done?

IMG_0268.JPG

Hybridity reduces the dependency on where is the hw, DRaaS is actively using this type of services.

IMG_0269.JPG

All the demos we are seeing are running on vSphere 6 web client. We are now seeing a demo of DRaaS on vCloud Air

IMG_0271.JPG

The vCloud Air on-demand beta is now live for people to try out

IMG_0272.JPG

We are wrapping up the presentations of this general session

IMG_0273.JPG

With that we are done our live coverage of this second day general session. Please visit us on thursday for the last general session. Thank you for reading.
