Symantec Protects the Data Center of the Future
Your future data center is coming sooner than you think. The software defined data center abstracts computing, networking, and storage software from the underlying hardware – and promises to deliver unparalleled flexibility, simplicity and savings. Symantec protects the software-defined data center with solutions that keep you secure, compliant and available.
VMworld 2013 challenges participants to ‘Defy Convention’ and will introduce new ways to design, deploy and manage the data center of the future. VMware and Symantec are working together to accelerate your virtualization journey and to deliver IT as a Service through your future data center. The Symantec product portfolio will help you protect people, infrastructure and information with backup, high availability, compliance, and security solutions optimized for highly virtualized infrastructures.

Symantec Speaking Sessions:

Title: VSVC5675 – Scaling the Cloud Using VMware: Lessons Learned from Implementing One of the World's Largest VMware vCloud Director Environments
Scaling the Cloud Using VMware: Lessons Learned from Implementing One of the World's Largest VMware vCloud Director Environments

We all acknowledge that the concept of "cloud computing" makes sense in many ways. VMware has created the powerful vCloud Director suite of products that is designed to enable the true vision of on-demand cloud computing. Needing exactly this sort of cloud environment, Symantec Corporation has created what has become one of the largest vCloud Director environments in the world – Global Symantec Labs. The Global Symantec Labs initiative provides over 600 unique vApp configurations (templates) that are instantly available to over 20,000 users in 20 different countries. At any given time over 20,000 virtual machines are actively managed. Since inception, we've deployed over 150,000 virtual machines. In this session, we will take the many lessons we have learned during this process and provide suggestions and best practices so that you can avoid the mistakes we made and get the most out of your vCloud Director implementation. Topics that will be covered include:
  • IT Drivers for the Software-Defined Data Center
  • Configuring a cloud based lab – the ultimate challenge
  • Strategies for scalable backup and restore
  • Why use a Software-Defined Data Center for a test environment
  • Using data protection technologies to enhance vCD scalability
  • Suggestions for designing custom web tools used to support the environment
  • How our vCloud Director environment has saved over 280,000 implementation man hours Regardless of the size of your environment, the knowledge and experience we've gained through this effort can be of benefit for any size vCloud Director deployment.

Title: OPT5697 – Symantec IT's Real-World Experience with a VMware Software-Defined Data Center
Symantec IT's Real-World Experience with a VMware Software-Defined Data Center

Symantec has built one of the largest Software-Defined Data Centers in the world, leveraging technology from VMware and Symantec to support more than 25,000 active VMs based on more than 700 pre-built templates. In just 15 months, Symantec saved 32,000 staff days – the equivalent of freeing 100 additional staff to work on higher value projects, – while dramatically improving quality and response time.
Date & Time: Monday, Aug 26, 3:30pm - 4:30pm | Moscone West, Room 3002
Speakers: Jason Puig, Product Manager, Symantec & Jeremiah Cornelius, VMware


Title: NET5529 – VMware NSX: A Customer's Perspective
VMware NSX: A Customer's Perspective

To stay competitive, companies are harnessing technology to accelerate and improve the business performance. Network Virtualization is the next major step in the transformation of IT for the cloud era. Hear directly from two of the VMware NSX customers who have deployed network virtualization and virtualization aware security services in their environment. Customers will discuss their usecase, architecture and their experience. They will then move on to detail the benefits, lessons learned and best practices. Attend this session to learn how you can benefit from the experience of your peers.
Date & Time: Monday, Aug 26, 5:00pm - 6:00pm | Moscone West, Room 3002
Panelist: Taruna Gandhi (VMware); Jason Puig (Symantec); Richard Sillito (WestJet)


Title: VAPP5600 – Pushing the Limits: How to Maximize Private Cloud ROI with Extreme Efficiencies of Scale
Pushing the Limits: How to Maximize Private Cloud ROI with Extreme Efficiencies of Scale

One of the key promises of virtualization is better utilization of physical resources. Having multiple virtual machines share a pool of compute, network, and storage resources allows for less waste and thus better cost efficiencies than a physical environment can accomplish. However, many virtualized implementations stop short of unlocking the true potential of large-scale resource pooling by creating too many silos for the physical resources and for the content itself. Next generation Software-Defined Data Centers require more dynamic sharing of resources at a larger scale and in a more automated fashion to achieve greater efficiencies than a traditional virtualized environment. In this session for technical professionals, we will examine the nuts and bolts behind one of the largest vCloud Director-based enterprise private clouds in the world. We'll discuss how thinking big on sharing and automation can help unlock the key benefits promised by the next generation Software-Defined Data Center and how at scale even the smallest design decisions can have a significant impact on performance and efficiency. We'll look at extreme strategies for optimizing the sharing of resources in a large-scale private cloud while maintaining deploy-time and run-time performance that will delight end users. More than just theory, we can show real-life benefits achieved because these strategies are already running in production today.
Date & Time: Wednesday, Aug 28, 11:00am - 12:00pm | Moscone West, Room 3018

Title: BCO5851 – VMware Backups that Work – Lessons Learned and Backup Performance Tuning Based on Extensive VADP Benchmark Testing
VMware Backups that Work – Lessons Learned and Backup Performance Tuning Based on Extensive VADP Benchmark Testing

We've pushed the backup performance envelope so that you don't have to! Industry leaders Cisco, NetApp, VMware and Symantec have teamed up to develop a best practice framework and performance benchmark based on the vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP). The test configuration uses the popular NetApp FlexPod environment. The result that proves that you can easily protect over 4 TB of virtual machine data an hour. Most think that to provide this sort of performance, a mountain of hardware is required. This is not the case. We show you how these performance numbers can be easily obtained with minimal hardware and a small budget. Improving backup performance also creates more reliable backups, shorter backup windows and less impact on the vSphere infrastructure. While backup performance is critically important, we also discuss restore performance considerations.
