Leveraging Advanced Storage Capabilities for Today's Virtual Environment SLAs
Virtual environments make traditional backup and recovery methods unscalable and obsolete. Today, there is no one-size-fits-all data protection technology that works across an entire environment. While VADP is sufficient for many applications, there are many critical workloads that require shorter RPOs and RTOs that VADP cannot meet. Fortunately, new technology is emerging that allows organizations to complement VADP with the use of array-based snapshots for application-consistent backups, which can help provide the performance, uptime, RPO, and RTO that your organization requires without breaking the bank.
In this session, we'll discuss both VADP and array-based snapshotting technology and how they can benefit your backup and recovery strategy.

Reigning in VM Sprawl - Automating Reclamation of Unused Resources
Virtualization has created worlds of new flexibility in our data centers. However, because it's so easy to provision new virtual machines, many organizations are experiencing VM sprawl – the proliferation of virtual machines, many of which are only needed for a certain time, and are then orphaned. Almost every VMware environment struggles with VM sprawl to some extent, and is wasting precious computing and storage resources that could be repurposed to other applications. However, many administrators are hesitant to just delete VMs for fear that they might be needed again later. For example, Test/Dev groups often create large sets of VMs for a project that lasts a week, and then move on to the next project without cleaning up the test environment created. The question is, why is VM sprawl still an issue? We’ve been talking about it for years, and it never seems to get solved. In this session, we'll examine VM sprawl, ways to mitigate sprawl, and learn about brand new tools available to help VMware admins and Dev/Ops teams automate resource utilization of the data management layer like VM Power Management (to reclaim unused memory and compute resources), Storage Management (to reclaim tier 1 disk space), and VM Retirement/Archival (to reclaim unused compute and storage resources).

Drying Out After Hurricane Sandy: Leveraging vCloud Director and Other Cloud Enablement Tools for Simpler, Faster DR Operations
Disaster recovery is more important than ever. The costs of an outage continue to rise in a 24x7 operating environment. Meanwhile, deployment of virtual and cloud infrastructure exacerbates this, since business owners think recovery should be instantaneous. Compounding the challenge, outage risks continue to rise.
In the wake of events like Hurricane Sandy, businesses are now scrambling to ensure they are ready for the "next one". One key learning from Hurricane Sandy is that DR readiness is not a one-time event, but a daily, ongoing battle to ensure both recovery readiness as well as DR test and audit compliance.
