vmworld2016

I can’t even believe it is already time again for VMworld. As always I can’t wait for it to be here (and I can’t wait for it to be over)  On one hand, its the largest opportunity to unite with my fellow IT brethren and sistren from all over the world yet on the other hand it also mean I need to spend months preparing speaking sessions and demos to share.  Now as we near the 30 day countdown and shift into high gear preparation mode I thought I would share a few thoughts about this year’s events.

Best VMworld Ever

Last year I said it was the Best VMworld Ever.  No I don’t intend to say that every year, but I truly believe this is going to be MY best VMworld ever.  If for no other reason, the fact that it will be my first ever VMworld as a VMware employee.  Sure that comes with a whole lot more work, but that’s OK.  I love my job, and am proud to represent the Storage and Availability Unit this year.

VIVA Las VVols Sessions

This year there are a ton of different VVol sessions at VMworld to choose from, and in case you’re wondering why that is, it’s because this is the YEAR of VVols!🙂  Below are several VVols sessions that I am either presenting or attending this year. I hope to see you there.

STO7645 – 8/29/16 (Monday) 11:00 AM
Virtual Volumes Technical Deep Dive

This is going to be my favorite session, because I get to co-present with the manager of the VVol development team, Patrick Dirks.  If you don’t know Patrick let me tell you, there isn’t a person on this planet that knows more about VVols, but more than that he an awesome teacher.  IMHO this is a must attend session for anyone interested in VVols.

STO8619 – 8/31/16 (Wednesday) 4:00 PM
Transitioning to VVols: Partner Panel

This is going to be a really interesting session because of all the different storage vendors that will be participating and sharing their views on the VVol transition.  The fun part about panel sessions is you, the audience member drive the discussion topics. I love having a free flowing conversation with subject matter experts for all the key storage vendors talking about this hot topic.  Another must attend IMHO.

STO8159 -8/31/16 (Wednesday) 11:30 AM
Snapshots Suck: How VSAN and VVol fix all your operational nightmares

I’m not sure how we got this controversial title approved but hey lets do this. If you’ve ever listened to the vSpeakingPodcast with John and I than this title makes more sense.  Either way if you’ve been in the industry for any amount of time you’ve probably experienced the pains of VMFS snapshots, whether its having too many which kills your IO or just waiting hours to delete them.  The good news is both VSAN and VVols bring significant  performance gains in this area and John and I are going to break it down.

STO8144 – 8/30/16 (Tuesday) 3:30 PM
Virtual Volumes in a NetApp Environment

Regardless of what storage you use this will be an informative session on VVols. We will be discussing what VVol looks like on all storage platforms and sharing what both ONTAP and Element OS users can expect with their VAS Providers.

STO8159 – 8/30/16 (Tuesday) 12:30 PM
Deploy Scalable Private Cloud with vSphere Virtual Volumes

This session is a technical deep-dive on how using VVols with Hitachi Storage systems will solve common challenges in managing VMs, streamline the storage operations with policy-based management and improve efficiency of VM operations.

STO8422 – Thursday, Sep 01, 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Virtual Volumes: Why?

In this session Ben Meadowcroft and Rajib Ghosh look at the VVol framework and how EMC is using this to deliver a new generation of VM-aware storage that puts the VMs in charge. You will learn about this revolutionary change in the way storage is delivered to VMware environments, and why this industry-wide initiative will provide you with a new, efficient and intelligent ways to use storage arrays.

vSpeakingPodcast – Road Show

Session 7679

Getting the Most From Your New Virtual Volume Array

Are you unsure how best to set up your new Virtual Volume (VVol)-based storage? Curious how to ensure a smooth user experience? Interested in learning about “gotchas” to avoid and best practices from specific vendors to optimize the use of their unique systems? Come to this talk by the manager of the VVol R&D team and one of VMware’s Principal Architects with extensive experience in storage and learn how to make the most of your new VVol storage. We’ll share both the technical background of the topic and the practical advice that will help you navigate this new technology like a pro.

Session 7645

Virtual Volumes Technical Deep Dive

Virtual Volumes (VVol) is a framework developed by VMware and partners in the storage industry to transform the way VMs are stored by enabling VM-awareness on arrays. VVols eliminate static storage constraints by removing LUNs, filesystems, and volumes, and giving the array direct visibility and understanding of the VM objects they store. This enables a flexible policy based approach to storing and managing VMs without traditional concerns about capability and capacity management bounded by LUNs on the physical infrastructure. Learn about this revolutionary change in the way storage is delivered to VMware environments, and how this industry-wide initiative will allow you an efficient and intelligent new way to use your storage arrays.

Session 8619

Transitioning to VVols: Partner Panel

As Virtual Volumes celebrates its first year we are seeing the types of customer conversations we have shifting from “Why” to “How”.  The “Why” is simple: Virtual Volumes make storage simpler, faster and smarter using policy-driven automation and improves resource utilization by enabling more flexible consumption of storage resources when needed and with greater granularity.

Session 8159

Snapshots Suck: How VSAN and VVol fix all your operational nightmares

While traditional VMFS snapshots can assist with backups, and provide quick checkpoints there are a lot of operations limits to their use. Operationally many organizations have limited the use of this technology to avoid performance problems. In addition to performance problems, snapshots can also cause capacity problems. John Nicholson and Pete Flecha will outline how new VMware snapshot offload systems in VSAN and VVOLs fix these problems. We will explain how these new technologies work and what use cases these technologies will allow.

Session 8616

Hyperconverge all the things with VSAN and Cohesity

In the post­Virtualization era, the more things change, the more they stay the same. The trend toward consolidation, convergence, and hyperconvergence continues to grow in strength, possibilities, and popularity. VMware Virtual SAN and Cohesity hyperconverged secondary storage provide a great solution to provide users with maximum performance and capacity while minimizing datacenter footprint.

Session 8073

VVol Architecture Comparison

Take a look at the key components of VVols and compare how various architectures have approached them. Storage Containers, Protocol Endpoints, Bindings and VASA Providers all can be implemented in a variety of ways. This session examines the various methods used for performance, capacity management and high availability in a VVols environment. We examine both block and NFS implementations, digging into the details of how various VVols architectures are put together.

Session 8840

Deploy Scalable Private Cloud with vSphere Virtual Volumes

A technical deep-dive on how using VMware Virtual Volumes (VVol) with Hitachi Storage systems will solve common challenges in managing VMs, streamline the storage operations with policy-based management and improve efficiency of VM operations. Hitachi introduced the VVol framework in its storage and converged platforms to enable organizations to fully realize the benefits of cloud-economics, user-control and automation. Hitachi storage policy-based management framework simplifies the VM provisioning, lifecycle management and data service delivery in private cloud deployments.

Session 8422

Virtual Volumes: Why

Ever wonder why you need VVols? VVol transforms the way VMs are stored and enables VM awareness on the array, eliminating static storage constraints and giving the array direct visibility and understanding of the VM objects. VVols can enable a flexible policy based approach to storing and managing VMs. We will look at VVol framework and how EMC is using this to deliver a new generation of VM-aware storage that puts the VMs in charge. You will learn about this revolutionary change in the way storage is delivered to VMware environments, and why this industry-wide initiative will provide you with a new, efficient and intelligent ways to use storage arrays.

Session 8144

Virtual Volumes in a NetApp Environment

Virtual Volumes (VVol) is a framework developed by VMware and partners in the storage industry to transform the way VMs are stored by enabling VM-awareness on arrays. VVols eliminate static storage constraints by removing LUNs, filesystems, and volumes, and giving the array direct visibility and understanding of the VM objects they store. This enables a flexible policy based approach to storing and managing VMs without traditional concerns about capability and capacity management bounded by LUNs on the physical infrastructure. In this session we will look at the VVol framework VMware has created, and how NetApp is using this to deliver a new generation of VM-aware storage that places the VMs in charge. SAN and NAS devices are pooled into storage containers that deliver every capability of the array (such as compression, encryption, QoS, and more) to each VM as an individual and discrete object, fully integrating with VMware’s Storage Policy Based Management interface. We will look at the policy based consumption model as well as the specific technical components of VVols that enable this functionality: Protocol Endpoints, VASA Providers, Storage Containers, virtual datastores, and more. Learn about this revolutionary change in the way storage is delivered to VMware environments, and how this industry-wide initiative will allow you an efficient and intelligent new way to use NetApp arrays.

Session 9057

vRA and VVol Perfect together

How do you achieve the holy grail of automated application lifecycle management without the headaches early adopters faced in their Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC) deployments? Cloud projects faced complex storage designs that could not scale, were difficult to manage, and didn’t deliver the right performance for the right application. Enter Hitachi Data Systems implementation of VMware Virtual Volumes (VVol), the perfect fit for infrastructure automation in conjunction with vRealize Automation Suite, the leading Cloud Management Platform today.

 

 


I had a great time podcasting with the old crew @NetApp this week.

Why Is The Internet Broken?

Welcome to the Episode 29 version of the new series called “Behind the Scenes of the NetApp Tech ONTAP Podcast.”

This week, we dragged former Tech ONTAP Podcast host Pete Flecha (aka @vPedroArrow) into the studio to talk VVols after our successful episode with SolidFire’s Aaron Patten last week.

Getting Pedro into the studio was easy – we still keep in touch with him and he was happy to come lend his expertise to the podcast. He also happens to have his own podcast that he just started up at VMware: Virtually Speaking.

I was glad to get Pedro into the studio – he was the guy who championed me to join up with the excellent podcast crew.

The podcast went pretty smoothly – it’s as if Pedro had done this before – but in classic Pedro Arrow fashion, we had to…

A New Podcast

19Jan16

For those of you that know me from my previous life as a NetApp Technical Marketing Engineer and host of the Tech ONTAP Podcast, you know that I joined VMware back in November.  I am a Sr Technical Marketing Architect in the Storage and Availability Business Unit focussing on Virtual Volumes (VVol) and vSphere APIs for IO Filtering (VAIO).  (more to come on these topics in future posts)

I’ve said this before and it bears repeating, Technical Marketing is one of the best gigs in IT.  You get paid to learn cool stuff and then share it with others. This is one of the reasons I absolutely loved being part of the Tech ONTAP Podcast at NetApp. Every week I got to bring in experts on topics that interested me and pick their brains. Hopefully the end result would benefit those who listened, but selfishly it was my way of feeding my curiosity. Now that I am at VMware, there is a whole new world of things that pique my curiosity, so I decided why not launch another podcast and feed the beast.

I know there is no shortage of podcasts out there already for just about any topic you can imagine.  Personally I subscribe to at least 3.  As a member of the Storage and Availability BU at VMware, I thought it might be interesting to start by focussing on this one piece of the IT puzzle. There are so many interesting things going on just in this space I could probably spend the entire year bringing in various experts to explain the intricacies of their respective technologies.  So that’s exactly what I intend to do.

The Virtually Speaking Podcast

Screen Shot 2016-01-19 at 6.14.41 PM

I cant decide if I love or hate the name but for now its called the Virtually Speaking Podcast. John Nicholson and I will be hosting weekly episodes, bringing in SMEs from VMware and other companies to discuss various topics related to Storage and Availability.

Meet your Hosts

Pete Flecha @PedroArrow

John is a Sr Technical Marketing Architect at VMware focussing on VSAN.  Prior to joining VMware John was the manager of client services for Synchronet, overseeing the professional services team who deployed cutting edge virtualization, VDI, and storage solutions for customers as well as the managed services who keep these environments running smoothly.  He enjoys a deep dive into the syslog, and can telepathically sense slow and undersized storage.

What’s on Deck?

John and I will be recording our very first episode in the coming weeks in which we will introduce ourselves and share with you what you can expect in the upcoming episodes. The entire schedule hasn’t been laid out yet, but you can expect to hear episodes covering the various aspects of Virtual Volumes, VSAN, Site Recovery Manager and PowerCLI just to name a few.  If there is a topic related to VMware that you would like us to dive into by all means send us an email at podcast@vmware.com

 

 


Bye for now….

22Nov15

If you are a listener of the Tech ONTAP Podcast, this will come as no surprise to you, but Friday 11-20-2015 was my last day at NetApp and Monday I start my new position at VMware (more on that later).   Professionally speaking, without question this has been the most difficult decision I have ever had to make.  NetApp and VMware have long been my two favorite tech companies and so while having to choose from the two companies you love the most is pretty much a first world problem, it didn’t make it any easier.

pete2-close-colorFour years ago I joined NetApp with one goal; become part of the VMware team there that caught my attention as a customer with technical reports, videos etc.  Rock Stars like Chris Gebhardt, Peter Learmonth, Nick Howell, Jack Mcloeud, Vaughn Stewart and Julian Cates. They taught me why NetApp was so perfect for VMware environments, and that was something I wanted to be a part of.

While on the team I quickly became the Business Continuity Disaster Recovery guy and did my best to spread the gospel of VMware on NetApp through all mediums possible.  I created Technical Reports, blog posts, PowerPoint presentations, reference architectures, and videos, spoke at various industry events and even built labs for NetApp employees and partners to test and share with our customers.  In my mind, the goal of a Technical Marketing Engineer (TME) is to evangelize the good news of your products and solutions in every medium possible.

The NetApp Communities Podcast

IMG_0068At the same time, my peer Nick Howell @datacenterdude came up with a new medium to use that quickly caught my attention.  He decided NetApp needed a voice in the community and  stood up the NetApp Communities Podcast. I was an instant fan of this effort and as luck would have it, Nick graciously invited me to be the co-host of the podcast.  Nick and I poured our hearts and souls into this side project and had over 80 episodes with a weekly cadence.  We brought in the experts and asked the questions our listeners wanted to hear, and the feedback was absolutely overwhelming.

One of our frequent guests was a NetApp expert by the name of Glenn Sizemore @glnsize.  We had Glenn on to talk Microsoft, FlexPod, and just about anything having to do with technology. Glenn possesses a skill that not many have.  It’s a skill I have secretly coveted for quite some time.  He has the ability to discuss most topics at a deep technical level, and effortlessly transition to a business value proposition. If you are a TME or are considering being one, take note.  This is the true essence of the position.  Nick and I had such a great chemistry with Glenn that it just made sense to bring him on as third host, and the three of us went on to do great things.

End of an era

For reasons above my pay grade (and understanding) Nick was impacted and moved on to do great things at a company called Cohesity.  That left Glenn and I with a huge void. We learned that this grassroots effort we built a few years ago was now gone with Nick.  So Glenn and I decided to start from the ground up and make this effort something with a strong foundation that would be an officially backed part of NetApp technical marketing.  We fought the system.  There were some tense moments. For the first time, they started to see the value in what we were doing, and boy did they hear from the listeners when we disappeared for a few weeks. In the end, I have to say from the highest level down, NetApp decided that what we were doing was making a difference and they welcomed us into the family.

The Tech ONTAP Podcast

tech-ontap-insight-vegas (1).pngThe Tech ONTAP group at NetApp was our new home, so we dove in creating new music, new logo, and a new format.   We brought in a new voice, but an old friend, Andrew Sullivan @andrew_ntap (aka Sully the Monster) Sully much like Glenn has the ability to cover a wide range of topics at all levels.  And so the three of us hit the ground running and produced weekly shows and daily recaps at various trade shows.  The feedback again was overwhelming. We had to walk through a valley of sorts and figure out a way to keep the NetApp voice in the community  but in a way that aligned with the goals of NetApp.  It wasn’t easy, and there are so many people behind the scenes that pour countless hours into making this thing work, but all in all I have to say I consider the Tech ONTAP Podcast one of the bigger accomplishments of my time at NetApp.  Seriously, when we started this thing, if you told me that I would be interviewing people like Matt Watts, Val Bercovici, George Kurian, Cynthia Stoddard and NetApp founder Dave Hitz I would have said you were crazy. IMG_1933

The feedback has been unbelievably overwhelming.  NetApp employees, partners, and customers have shared countless stories of where they listen, how it helps enable them to either learn NetApp or shorten their sales cycle. To each and every person I spoke with about the podcast, thank you, thank you, thank you for all your kind words. You ARE the reason we do it.

A new face (made for radio)

IMG_1987

If you’re a Tech ONTAP Podcast listener, then the name Justin Parisi @nfsdudeabides should not be unfamiliar to you.  Justin is many things; smart, vocal, talented, hilarious and an all around great guy.  When I knew I might be leaving, Justin was the first person that came to mind as a replacement.  I won’t miss an episode, and have already requested to be a guest on any episodes that I can contribute to. Best of luck Justin!

A new horizon

As I mentioned earlier, my two favorite tech companies are NetApp and VMware.  While at NetApp I had the opportunity to work some great guys at VMware, and so when an opportunity over there arose I saw it as a great chance to bring my passion for NetApp to Palo Alto.  I’m really excited about the new gig and will share more in a future post.

Forever grateful

The amount of brilliant and talented people at NetApp that have influenced me are too great to name. NetApp is a company with a strong culture. The technology is absolutely amazing and I am so excited to see the Blue N continue to do great things.  Thanks to the EBC for allowing me to speak to our customers.  Thanks to Sam Moulton and the A-Team for being such amazing advocates. You guys are amazing. Thanks to the Tech ONTAP family for welcoming us into your family. Thanks to all the TMEs at NetApp that do the hard job of explaining technical topics in ways that all can understand and benefit from.  Thanks to my team for inspiring me to be the best I can be.  Being on a team filled with the sharpest minds in the industry has truly been an honor.

B-TAFhACAAAcP8KAnd last but not least, to all my foosball opponents (you know who you are) you have not seen the last of me.  I will return (when invited) to deliver the great wrath you have come to know and love.  In the words of the late great Eric the Actor…..”bye for now”
