VMUG India UserCon – How does memory tiering lower memory cost and improve efficiency – Sep 21, 2022 , 11:15 PM-11:50 PM PST – Presenting with John Hubbard (Intel) and Arvind Jagannath (VMware)

Abstract: Rapidly changing world dynamics and exponential data growth have increased demand for IT services. During a period of unprecedented economic uncertainty, IT organizations are deploying more infrastructure but within limited budgets. Intel and VMware are addressing this IT paradox. Architectural approaches like memory tiering can increase memory capacity and help reduce TCO. Customers modernizing their data center with VMware Cloud Foundation, VMware Tanzu, VMware vSphere and VMware vSAN on Intel® Optane technology are experiencing these benefits. Hear how VMware and Intel have partnered to make infrastructure ownership and management more efficient with memory tiering and monitoring.

BrightTalk – Inside Memory Tiering with Intel and VMware: A Deeper Dive – 26 April,2022

Today, many businesses are adopting AI and in-memory database applications to derive more value from their data. But in order for data to really make an impact and lead to quick, actionable business insights, these applications need to run in real-time – and without bottlenecks. With this requiring large memory capacities that are latency sensitive, it’s no wonder that many organizations are facing a difficult trade-off between cost and performance.

There doesn’t always have to be a trade-off, though – and in episode 2 of ‘New Storage Strategies’, experts from Intel and VMware are sharing why. From diving deeper into how Memory Tiering strikes the right balance between infrastructure cost and performance, to taking a closer look at concepts for eliminating bottlenecks, join us as they share:

– The key Memory Tiering concepts from VMware
– How to chase and eliminate bottlenecks from your data storage
– What you must consider in order to build and deliver a uniform consumption model that is transparent to applications
– A live tool walkthrough of Intel Optane in vSphere
– And more

Host – John Burke – CTO, Nemertes
Guest Speakers:
-Drew Peterson – Global Sales Manager – Intel Memory & Storage Technologies
-Sudhir Balasubramanian – Senior Staff Solution Architect & Global Oracle Field Practice Lead at VMware

Unfortunately, it is often the case, that significant confusion regarding how to properly license Oracle software in those VMware environments dominates the discussion distracting from what should be the main focus of the proposition. That is, the tremendous value of combining the world’s premier RDBMS with the world’s premier virtualization platform.

VMware is committed to customers who are interested in running Oracle on vSphere and correctly licensing Oracle Software on virtual infrastructure. This session will explain the intricacies of Oracle licensing along with knowledge of how to properly adhere to existing contracts and to correctly license virtualized infrastructure for Oracle workloads on VMware platform which includes VMware vSphere, VMware vSAN and VMware Cloud on AWS

Consolidating Mixed-Workloads with VMware and EMC XtremIO All-Flash Storage – Wednesday, Jan 13, 2016 9-10am PST

https://www.dellemc.com/en-us/storage/xtremio/all-flash-webinars.htm

No rest for the weary- you’ve succeeded with broad virtualization initiatives, but the business wants more. Whether it’s consolidating multiple business-critical workloads or building agile Private Cloud, it’s getting harder. And your infrastructure remains the bottleneck for SLAs, costs, and your ops and process agility. Neither hybrid flash storage nor scale-up flash architectures can deliver these massive consolidations, so your environment is too darned complex, unwieldy, unpredictable, and expensive.

Come learn about the new infrastructure best practices with scale-out all-flash arrays, in-memory cloning operations, and inline data services that have transformed many of your peers. Point and shoot all your workloads on to a consolidated scale-out platform to meet all SLAs with incredible operational, storage efficiency, and bullet-proof consistent latency and IOPS. No more performance tuning. Instant in-memory VM cloning and app copy services with no capacity impact. Radically simple VM administration at scale for all workloads and SLAs. We’ll discuss these new capabilities with customer examples, including:
• What does it take to enable massive mixed workload consolidation for multiple tier 1 workloads
• How smart, efficient VM cloning services can uncomplicate VM administration
• How you can provision 1000s of VMs instantly with no SLA risk and no infrastructure impact
• Why the hypervisor integrations matter for large-scale virtual environments

When one thinks of “Business Critical Applications” Oracle databases inevitably make the short list. In this one-hour CloudCast, VMware subject matter expert Sudhir Balasubramanian will discuss best practices for virtualization of these critical components. vSphere 6.0 new features for Oracle Business Critical Apps, High Availability, Disaster Recovery, Sizing and more will be described in relatively deep technical detail. Additionally, Sudhir will describe how best to maintain compliance with Oracle licensing, which is often a confusing topic when running in a virtualized environment.
