Software-Defined Data Center (1/2 day)

Location on request

Time on request
Costs CHF 1’290.– per participant

Want to know more about software-defined data centers? This 1-day deep dive workshop describes principles of overlay virtual networking, vendor-specific architectures, gateways between physical and virtual world, and virtual appliances… all the way down to the actual end-to-end packet walks.

Could you replace traditional storage replication and stretched VLANs with hyperconverged infrastructure and overlay virtual networking? Maybe – it all depends on your business requirements, and this workshop will help you separate the facts from the hype.

Building Active-Active Data Centers with SDDC (1/2 day)

Location on request
Date on request
Time on request
Costs CHF 645.– per participant

How should you build an active-active data center architecture? Should you rely on traditional vendor offerings like VPLS or OTV, or rely on new-age paradigms like SDDC.
Sometimes you just need a real-life perspective, focusing on what works, what doesn’t and why. You’ll find it in this workshop.

Virtual Firewalls and Appliances (1/2 day)

Location on request
Date on request and planned for the 1st of September 2016
Time on request

Can you replace traditional firewalls and load balancers with virtual appliances? How about replacing firewalls with VMware NSX microsegmentation?
This workshop covers the technological aspects of these exciting solutions, as well as business-focused guidelines. After all, technology by itself usually creates more problems than it solves.

Whitebox Switching (1/2 day)
