8:30AM-9:15AM (PT): Part I: Brave New IT - Accelerating Business Innovation in a Liquid World

Speaker:
  • Sumit Dhawan, Senior VP and General Manager, VMware

The power of business mobility is driving investment in the next generation of desktop architectures, mobile platforms and, even more importantly, new and rebuilt business processes and business operations designed to make the greatest impact with an increasingly mobile workforce and customer base.

VMware helps organizations create desktop computing environments that are truly inspired by mobility – desktops built on a secure, mobile cloud architecture, offering flexibility in delivery and ownership models, with a fresh user experience across all devices and giving IT simplified management and unbeatable ROI – thus paving the way for IT to evolve past the limitations of legacy desktop architectures, delivering end-user freedom with secure access to services at the lowest cost, whether delivered on-premises or through a hybrid cloud.

Join this keynote to find out how VMware can help you transform your organization through business mobility, so that users can enjoy a consistent and personalized experience across devices, locations and connections; businesses can drive down costs, improve workplace productivity and respond more quickly while maintaining security.

Demand for storage continues to explode. The ubiquitous use of virtualization and the emergence of cloud-based services increase end-user expectations for performance and responsiveness, while adding pressure to lower costs and increase efficiency. Enterprises have discovered that they need a flexible, scalable approach to storage if they hope to keep up with these rising demands; an approach that is more software-centric and application-oriented, without compromising cost and time-to-market. This need, coupled with other advances in storage technology, has given rise to a new approach to storage: hyperconvergence.

Join this session to learn:

  • What is hyperconvergence and why is it such a rage with IT pros today?
  • VMware’s implementation of hyper-converged storage, Virtual SAN
  • How USC Medical Center is implementing Virtual SAN and why

Tags: hypervisor-converged storage, software defined data center, virtual san
