That's quite a long title but probably best describes an upcoming VMUG presentation I'm tagged to present on Nov 9th at the 2015 VMUG virtual event 3.0. I wanted to give you a sneak peek at some of the topic areas I'll cover so you can maximize your time to get involved in the session (or defer to another VMUG session heaven forbid) plus opportunity to prep to bring your questions you may have in this area.

The plot of the presentation is around Software–Defined, Reliably Delivered High Availability / Disaster Recovery across Tier 1 Applications. Its really about guidelines or suggestions to avoid being part of this statistic, especially for your Tier 1 virtualized workloads. How can you effectively implement a solution that delivers operational recovery, DR and business continuity for those critical services...




Its focused on Tier 1 workloads that are virtualized are typically running on enterprise storage platforms or more so converged platforms such as Vblock, FlexPod or newer generation HDS UCP converged.

I'll give some guidelines based on customer experiences (be it converged or straight up storage platforms) on the type of solutions you should be looking at to effectively achieve operational recovery, DR scenarios and spend some time on the new possibilities with Stretched ESXi clusters, stretched storage and the holy grail of 3DC
