Speaking @ VMworld 2018 Barcelona

Booom! I will be co-presenting with my colleague Per Thorn at VMworld Barcelona! The session is around vSAN and the lessons learned from running this technology for our customers. The challenges it introduces, and the gotchas to watch out for. A big thank you to Per and Dave for the opportunity!

Lessons Learned from Real-World vSAN Operations [HCI1329BES]

vSAN enables low cost, high performing, policy-based storage for vSphere environments and is quickly becoming the first-choice storage solution for private and public cloud solutions. Due to its hyper-converged nature, vSAN differs in many ways from standard array-based storage and also impacts how vSphere is operated. There are considerations to take into account when designing and managing a vSAN cluster to maximize availability and performance, including what firmware and drivers to use, alarm thresholds, and process changes. Rackspace is using vSAN as the primary storage for its hosted private cloud solution and has extensive experience with its design and operational support.
