VMworld Preview: INF 4712: Just Because You COULD, Doesn't Mean You SHOULD – VMware vSphere 6.0 Architecture Considerations from Real World Experiences

I have been  decisively absent in the last little bit from updating here, but for good reason.  I have been preparing for VMworld!  I will be speaking at several sessions at both Partner Day and throughout the week at both the VMworld Booth as well as my one session

Just wanted to plug my breakout session though.  The session is: INF 4712 - Just Because You COULD, Doesn't Mean You SHOULD - vSphere 6.0 Architecture Considerations from Real World Experiences.  (Title totally stolen from Pat...)

If you have ever noticed the ever-changing VMware vSphere architecture with the introduction of new services and technologies, than this session is for you.  In essence you should already know that the architectural configuration details in an environment become instrumentally important to the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). The foundation of the SDDC starts with vSphere; if architected correctly it will be much more than a platform for the environment.

At VMworld in San Francisco I will discuss lessons learned from our VMware Professional Services team. This discussion will bring real-world experience to light so that common issues can be addressed prior to the deployment of the solution, rather than after the fact.

Here is an example of what we will dive into: There are different architectures for the Platform Services Controller, from an embedded node to a maximum-sized configuration, as shown in the figure below.

To be able to use Enhanced Linked Mode however, it is important to understand the correct and supported architectures that allow for a design to be configured in a supported manner. This will ensure that the chances of a failure are minimized from the beginning.

To learn more, attend my session Wednesday, September 2, at 8:00 AM or Thursday, September 3, at 1:30 PM. #INF4712
