It seems like only yesterday I was getting ready for VMworld 2012, but here we are again for 2013.  VMworld 2013 public voting is now open and can be accessed here.  The sessions I have submitted this year are listed below.  If you think they are interesting and of interest for you personally then feel free to give them your vote.

4503 – Architecting a UK Government-assured Multi-site vCloud

Abstract:  Resiliency is a key aspect of any infrastructure—it is especially important in infrastructure-as-a-service solutions, such as a vCloud assured for use by the UK Government and Public Sector. This session will include a tour of a real world solution deployed by Skyscape. Throughout the session there will be detailed guidance on how the solution achieves high-availability and disaster recovery capabilities using VCE hardware with EMC VNX and VPLEX, whilst achieving accreditation by the UK Government up to Restricted level and compliance with ISO27001 standards.

Presenters:  Aidan Dalgleish and Richard Stinton

4667 – Monitoring your vCloud Infrastructure with vCenter Operations

Abstract:  In this session we will cover the requirements needed to monitor your vCloud Infrastructure. Multiple real world scenarios will be demonstrated with recommendations on best practice and potential pitfalls, how to integrate vCenter Operations with vCloud Director and vFabric Hyperic.

Presenters:  David Hill and Aidan Dalgleish

4804 – Addressing your DR IP ails without the need for ale

Abstract:  Recovery of virtual machines in a disaster recovery situation is always complicated, and without the luxury of stretched physical layer 2 networks, the inflexibility of IP addressing can be a significant challenge. We find ourselves jumping through hoops to accommodate the location specific requirements of IP addressing and routing. This session will walk you through how to setup VMware Infrastructure IP addressing in order to simplify DR failover by removing the requirement to reconfigure your virtual machines to match the new address space. During the session we will cover the infrastructure requirements of this including but not limited to vShield Manager, vShield Edges, VXLAN and network overlay technologies. At the conclusion of the session you will be able to articulate the benefits of overlay networks and how they offer the potential to help simplify disaster recovery processes for your infrastructure.
