Agenda Synopsis   

 

  • Sponsors

  • Zerto – Gold Sponsor
  • Presenter : Steve Blow 
  • Disaster Recovery Evolved
  • Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) 5.0 is the only future-proof, all-in-one replication and recovery solution that makes enterprise-class disaster recovery simple and scalable. ZVR 5.0 utilizes hypervisor-based replication of VM block-level changes, from any storage to any storage, to enable seamless protection of both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments. With support for both on-premise and cloud-based recovery, ZVR 5.0 enables you to evolve your IT strategy and improve IT resilience by embracing hybrid cloud to day.

  • Morpheus Data – Silver Sponsor
  • Presenter : James Smith, Morpheus Data
  • Carry on CAMPing (Cloud Application Management Platform)
  • Public Cloud is changing the way infrastructure and applications can be delivered, but how do you maximise the benefit without introducing just another management headache. Morpheus Data is a full feature cloud management platform that allows you do deploy into any public or private cloud infrastructure at either VM or Container level. As well single instance deployment, Morpheus supports applications stack deployment with application templating and integration into all major automation tools. Once deployed, instances can be monitored, logged and backed up. During the session we will show provisioning of a simple two tier app stack and then deployment of an application onto that stack. We will then look at how we can monitor and control that app through its life cycle.
