Audience: Technical / Mid-Level

Building heterogeneous private and hybrid cloud environments to drive today’s business demands

Modern data centers are a mix of hypervisors, and bare-metal workloads intended to serve applications to users across any device and location.  Additional constraints are placed on these environments do to requirements for use of multiple-datacenters, and public cloud resources.  In this session we will cover the considerations for building private clouds on heterogeneous environments as well connecting those resources seamlessly across multiple private clouds and into the public cloud.

Date & Time: Monday, Aug 25th, 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM.

Management and Automation for UCS Integrated Infrastructure

Whether deploying integrated infrastructure solutions built around the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) and Cisco Nexus products, or using multivendor infrastructures and multi-hypervisors, Cisco UCS Director (UCSD) provides integrated infrastructure management and Automation for operational simplicity.  Delivering management for administering computing, network, virtualization, and storage-as-a-system, from one self-service web interface, Cisco UCSD was designed to operationally integrate bare-metal and virtual data center infrastructure resources, addressing complex, manual, and compartmentalized management processes, to reduce total costs.  We will focus on how Cisco UCSD automates Application Ready, IT integrated infrastructure management processes; abstracting the complexity of individual devices, hypervisors, and virtual machines.

Agile Virtual Networking for VMware vSphere using Cisco Nexus 1000V and Cisco UCS Director

Virtual Networking requirements have been evolving from being able to simply support virtual workloads similar to physical workload to be more agile private cloud deployment as well as extending to a public cloud. Providing ability to consistently apply application policy on any type of workload (physical/virtual) defines our approach to virtual networking. With this approach, enterprises will be able to simplify application deployment. This session will cover Cisco’s virtual networking solutions based on Nexus 1000V and Cisco UCS Director for VMware vSphere environments to deliver much needed agility to data center and cloud deployments by rapidly provisioning virtual networking and services in minutes to keep the virtual application workloads isolated.

Date & Time: Wednesday, August 27, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM.

Automating Host, Guest and Application Deployment in the Software Defined Datacenter with Cisco

Automation is an essential component of the Software Defined Datacenter, without an automation solution this is destined for failure. We want to automate it all, from the deployment of the hardware, the hypervisor, the operating systems, and the application. This session will go through a customer story inside Cisco where an automation solution was implemented using PowerUCS, PowerCLI, Razor and Puppet to ensure a successful deployment from end to end. The session is technical, will provide a detailed architecture and methodology used in this customer, and how the solution reduced the deployment time from a number of days to a matter of hours.

Date & Time: Wednesday, August 27, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM.
