- Converged I/O for HP ProLiant Gen8 (session #BB3259 – Thursday, June 7th 11:15am): Join this interactive session with IT Brand Pulse to understand the benefits of HP converged networking, by exploring a customer’s real-world deployment. HP has just unveiled its next generation ProLiant Gen8 platform that accelerates server market transformation – in addition to being self-sufficient, this new platform is enabled with industry-leading I/O making them incredibly fast and flexible. The HP ProLiant Gen8 platform delivers a converged I/O that includes FlexFabric, Flex-10, iSCSI and Fibre Channel over Ethernet…..at the price of 10GbE.
- The benefits and best practices of using 10Gb Ethernet with VMware vSphere 5.0 (session #TB3258 – Wednesday, June 6th 2:45pm): Join Emulex and VMware for a technical discussion to help understand the effect of transitioning from 1Gb to 10Gb Ethernet. It’s no longer about speed and feeds as it requires knowledge of new network architectures and management tools in order to setup and monitor bandwidth allocation and traffic prioritization. Storage and Network architects need to have an understanding of new storage technologies, and networking features VMware brings with VMware ESXi 5.0.
We look forward to seeing you at HP Discover – stop by Emulex booth #407 in the Expo! See you in Vegas!
