My first session is NET5516, titled "An Introduction to Network Virtualization" with Eric Lopez. In this session, we will provide an instruction course on VMware NSX for Multi-Hypervisor. The first half of the session will establish the necessary foundation for what Network Virtualization is and how it is achieved as well as the architecture and system components that comprise VMware NSX for Multi-Hypervisor. Once we have layed the foundation and established some common terminology, we will use Whiteboard technology to interactively design a Logical Network Virtualization Architecture to meet a set of business requirements. I am really looking forward to this session as there is not a lot of information out there on NSX or even Network Virtualization in general.
My second session is NET5790, titled "Operational Best Practices for NSX in VMware Environments" with Ray Budavari. This session we will provide a brief overview of the NSX vSphere architecture and components in order to provide a foundation for understanding the operational impact of these technologies. We will then focus on the day-to-day tasks such as automation, backup and recovery, logging, monitoring, and troubleshooting. These tasks are described in the context of core features such as VDS, VXLAN, NSX Controller, NSX Manager, Distributed Routing, Firewall and NSX Edge. I am also excited about this session because we are planning to leverage demonstrations to provide examples of real world scenarios and that is always a crowd pleaser if you can pull it off
