Health, Risk and Efficiency Assessment of SAN Infrastructure with vCenter Operations Manager (vCOPS)
Session ID: STO6123 Tuesday October 15, 17:00 Jon Hudson, Principal Engineer, Brocade
Didier Stolpe, Senior Product Manager, Brocade
VMware vCenter Operations Manager (vCOPS) is a powerful tool and platform to:
Manage your cloud infrastructure health, monitor applications performance
Assess the risks based on growing resource consumption
Reclaim over-provisioned capacity so assets can be better utilized in most data centers
Fibre Channel SAN fabrics are deployed between the Server VMs and the storage LANs to enable reliable, predictable and high performance traffic flows between applications and data stores.
This session looks at using vCOPS with the Brocade management software to provide a comprehensive SAN view. This capacity provides data center administrators with a more comprehensive visibility of their SAN storage networking so that they can monitor and manage their storage networks, compute and storage resources from an end-to-end perspective using vCOPS. This session will discuss how Brocade network management software (comprising of the Brocade Network Advisor and Brocade’s integration) can be used with the VMware vCOPS analytics engine to accurately assess and predict potential service degradation and to help rapid service restoration and avoidance of disruptions.

Advanced Network Designs for Data Centre Transformation
Session ID: NET 6091 Wednesday October 16, 12:30 Jon Hudson, Principal Engineer, Brocade
This session will look at advanced network designs that will allow data centre professionals to deploy VMware NSX network virtualization today with the flexibility and scalability to support future workloads and network products. In order for this to be successful, customers need to take into account the application workloads and the traffic flows across their data center networks. This session will help you determine the design that best suit your requirements by addressing these questions:
As you increase the mix of application workloads to be virtualised, which network design is best suited for a smooth transition?
Which design provides the best flexibility to deploy more applications, increase network virtualisation and add more capacity to support more traffic, applications, users and organisation?
How can you ensure high performance, reliability and scalability for the underlying network to support the changing overlay network requirements?
What about the other L4-L7 network services such as providing load balancing, firewall and other services? How do you incorporate these into your design?
How does your design better enable you to address failures, performance or capacity issues?
This session will discuss the virtual/physical networking integration that Brocade has developed using Brocade’s VDX/VCS Ethernet fabrics.
