SMMUG in Portland ME: You’ve heard about Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) and vSAN over the past couple years. The big question everyone has, Is it for my organization?

November 16, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm

Join Mark Gabryjelski, WEI Virtualization Practice Manager, for a look at how these solutions can provide you another option for shared storage in the datacenter, and how managing these solutions keep the focus on Storage Policy-Based Management (SPBM), rather than managing LUNs. We will discuss vSAN specifically (and logically about other HCI offerings).

WEI is taking many customers into HCI, and these are the conversations we are having to design the correct HCI solution.  Come join us, and work through this aspect of how HCI SPBM work well together to simplify your VM availability (or recoverability) requirements.  Of course, bring your questions and your scenarios to the session, and join us for an interactive discussion about HCI solutions.


Mark Gabryjelski has been practicing VMware since 2000, and ESX since 2002.  Hundreds of integrations and implementations later, his experiences, lessons learned, and insights should make your headaches go away.  Mark maintains many VMware Certifications, and currently holds VCP#46, VCAP-DCA #7, VDAP-DCD#48, and VCDX #023 with VMware.  Mark is also the author of “Foundation in the Art of IT Infrastructure Design”, and founder of the book series, IT Architect Series.
