Super SessionsSS1010 - Cloud Transforms IT. Trust Transforms Cloud. Big Data Transforms Business.Tuesday Aug 28 (2:00 PM – 3:00 PM)Cloud computing is transforming IT. The way IT deploys infrastructure, provisions resources, builds applications, and provides access to theseapplications is changing dramatically, promising both greater efficiency and agility. At the same time, many businesses now see data volumesgrowing so large they break traditional infrastructures – this is what EMC calls Big Data. Managing Big Data represents a huge challenge forIT, but using analytics to provide insight into Big Data promises to transform business, delivering competitive advantage and breakthroughbusiness value. Cloud computing and Big Data will only be viable if they are underpinned by a foundation of trust – trust that theinfrastructure will be available 24x7 and trust that data will not be compromised by the latest advanced threats. Join EMC as we address thechanges necessary to move to a new model – one which requires IT to transform to an internal service provider, shifting focus frominfrastructure cost to business agility. We will discuss EMC’s technology direction and roadmap, our comprehensive integrations withVMware, and customer experiences who have transformed IT and their business.Jeremy Burton - EVP of Product Operations and Marketing, EMC CorporationSPO3337 - Transform Your Mission-Critical Applications on EMC and VMwareMonday Aug 27 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM)A vital step towards delivering IT as a Service (ITaaS) is virtualizing mission-critical applications to gain unprecedented efficiency, applicationavailability, business agility, and time to market.

Manyof these customers desperately want to migrate these databases off of UNIX and onto x86 / Linux under vSphere. The reason is cost:Running Oracle on UNIX is extremely expensive. Running Oracle under x86 / Linux on VMware vSphere is far less costly. The barrier tomigration is endianness. Since Oracle 10g, the internal Oracle datafile structure has been completely cross-platform, with one exception:Endianness. Endianness refers to the order in which data is stored within the platform’s CPU. Most UNIX platforms are big endian and all x86platforms, including VMware vSphere, are little endian. Thus, Oracle datafiles must be converted when they are transferred from UNIX tox86 / vSphere. The real challenge is doing this with minimal, if any, downtime. Many of these databases are mission-critical and cannotwithstand significant downtime. Unfortunately, the built-in VMware platform migration tools (such as VMware vCenter Converter) only workon the x86 platform as the source platform. For this reason, other tools must be used to migrate the database onto vSphere. This sessionwill cover detailed procedures and relative tradeoffs of the various choices for making this transition in as close to real-time as humanlypossible. In other words, various options exist for cross-platform migration of Oracle databases from RISC / UNIX onto vSphere, and each ofthese will be discussed and compared in detail.Jeff Browning - Tribal Shaman, EMC Corporation
APP-CAP3080 - Cloud Ready Front Office – How EMC is Working with VMware and NYSE Technologies to Put Trading Services in the CloudThursday Aug 30 (1:30 PM - 2:30 PM)Business requirements for most trading businesses are mature and well understood. However, due to the historical nature of tradingsystems evolution (with development teams silo’d by trading desk, and with new groups entering via mergers and acquisition), applicationservices are fragmented and overly complex. Many Financial Services technology practitioners argue that a trading floor cannot exist in thecloud. However, with economic factors driving trading volumes down to levels seen 10 years ago, fees have dipped accordingly, and currenttechnology infrastructure cost are unsustainable. It’s time to take a second look. There are clear benefits for modernizing tradingservices. Consolidated, shared services and information models reduce cost and complexity, and enable more nimble response to theavalanche of regulatory reporting requirements. Cloud-enabled trading services will take advantage of scale up/ scale down capacity andlowest cost location. EMCC is working with VMware and NYSE Technologies to craft our Cloud Ready Front Office offering, built onNanotrader, VMware’s technical architecture for cloud-enabled trading services. This session outlines modernizing a trading firm’sapplication portfolio.Nancy Turbe - Partner, Capital Markets Industry Lead, EMC CorporationChristopher Keene - VP, R&D, VMware, Inc.Feargal OSullivan - Global Head of Alliances, NYSE TechnologiesInfrastructureINF-BCO2982 - Stretched Clusters & SRM; How and When to Choose One, the Other, or Both?Tuesday, Aug 28 (3:30 PM-4:30pm) and Thursday, Aug 30 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM)Need to deploy a highly-available vSphere cluster that spans two data centers? When should you deploy a geo-spanned storage cluster, adistributed storage cache, or SRM?Chad Sakac - Vice President, VMware Technology Alliance, EMC CorporationVaughn Stewart - Director for Cloud Computing solutions and Virtualization Evangelist, NetAppINF-SEC2306 - Automated IT Infrastructure Management and GRC TechnologiesMonday, Aug 27 (2:00 PM - 3:00 PM) and Wednesday, Aug 29 (8:30 AM - 9:30 AM)This session will outline the integration of IT Infrastructure Management solutions from VMware, EMC, and Governance Risk andCompliance (GRC) Technologies from RSA. Many organizations today struggle with exactly how to leverage the benefits of cloud computingwithout sacrificing security, control, or compliance. Due to siloed structures or a lack of standardized GRC processes, some IT departmentslack visibility, are relegated to manual efforts, and lack a centralized audit function. The abstraction layers introduced by virtualization makeconfiguration management and compliance validation even more difficult. The presenters will conduct a detailed demonstration of the out-of-the-box integration among VMware, RSA, and EMC technologies, showing the full lifecycle from policy creation, through scanning criticalIT assets automatically, and reporting results via a dashboard.George Gerchow - Director, Center for Policy & Compliance, VMware, Inc.Hoc Phan - Solution Marketing Manager, EMC Corporation
