VMworld 2015 is less than two weeks away and Commvault is thrilled to be a Platinum sponsor for one of the industry’s biggest events, bringing together thought leaders, subject matter experts and IT professionals to immerse in the latest in virtualization and cloud technology. We’ll be at booth #1605 and can’t wait to get started.

Every year, VMworld offers attendees the opportunity to network with industry experts, learn about the latest research and get hands-on experience and in-depth training. Commvault will be diving into this year’s show headfirst with our experts participating in not one but three Breakout Sessions covering everything from virtual infrastructure to cloud adoption and backup:

Tuesday, Sept. 1, 1 – 2 p.m.

SDDC6215: Key Things to Know about VVOLS, VSAN and Converged Infrastructure, and how they affect Your VM Backup and Recovery

Presented by:

  • Donald Foster, Sr. Director of Product Management, Office of the CTO, Commvault
  • Luke Walker, Sr. Technical Product Manager, Commvault

The recent releases of VMware Virtual Volumes (vVols) and VMware Virtual SAN (vSAN) have added new variables to the virtual infrastructure equation. What’s more, hyperconverged infrastructure players like Nutanix have created other features that accomplish the same goals. All of these options give you more flexibility in your VMware architecture, but they can also introduce more complexity. In this session, we’ll discuss some of the key considerations around how implementing vVols, vSAN, and converged infrastructure will affect VM backup and recovery methods and how organizations can architect those solutions for success.

Wednesday, Sept. 2, 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.

INF6250: Beyond Cloud Backup: Enabling Disaster Recovery and Workload Portability

Presented by:

  • Robbie Wright - Sr. Manager, Product Marketing - Virtualization & Cloud, Commvault Systems
  • John Fox - Sr. Manager, Product Management, Commvault

Cloud backup is not just a feature you “turn on” – it’s a game changer for your infrastructure. During this session, we will discuss the opportunities of cloud backup and why the value is actually in recovery in the cloud, not backup. We will talk about why replication of cloud-based workloads alone can leave your data unprotected. Lastly, we will cover all the ways to protect critical data running in SaaS platforms for recovery or compliance use cases.

Wednesday, Sept. 2, 4 – 5 p.m.

INF6251: 4 Keys to Avoiding the Hidden Costs of Cloud Adoption

Presented by:

  • Peter Laudenslager, Director, Product Marketing, Commvault
  • Jonathan Howard, Sr. Manager, Product Management, Commvault Systems

Cloud has a place in every organization, but many have learned the hard way that there are important caveats that must be considered when moving workloads and data to the cloud. Business needs for increased VM provisioning agility are driving cloud adoption, but the growth of rogue public cloud usage often means the data created is beyond the IT department’s reach, creating problems with security, compliance and control. In this session, we’ll discuss the best ways to leverage cloud infrastructure while controlling resource waste and keeping costs under control. We’ll also focus on the best ways to provide and control end user self-service, enable cross-platform migration and best practices for reclaiming wasted resources.
