Modern Data Strategies – Moving Beyond RDBMS

Relational databases have been the undisputed industry standard for data storage and management since the concept was introduced to the computing community, with the first commercially viable products appearing in the late 1970’s. Today, 50 years later, there continues to be a place for this technology and it is still a pillar of modern computing. However, in the ever-changing landscape of data platforms and technology, how does your organization determine the best options for storing, managing, and retrieving data going forward? Learn how concepts like Virtual, NoSQL, Columnar, and Streaming increase your options as well as offer the potential for improving your ability to truly manage data while maximizing its utility for your business.

Scottish Government Virtualizes Critical Legacy Apps in VMware Cloud on AWS

Scottish Government Virtualizes Critical Legacy Apps in VMware Cloud on AWS [BCA3199BU]
Scotland’s Agriculture and Rural Economy Directorate (ARE) desired to embrace a modern hybrid cloud strategy built around VMware technologies as their platform of the future. This was complicated by many mission-critical, legacy applications and Oracle databases that were perceived to be impossible to virtualize or move to the cloud due to their dependence on legacy technologies such as the SPARC/Solaris platform, Oracle Database 10g, and Oracle APEX. House of Brick and ARE partnered to virtualize the legacy application stacks using VMware vSphere, and leverage VMware HCX and VMware Cloud on AWS as a disaster recovery platform. Between the two, ARE proved that even the most stubborn legacy application can be a good fit for a hybrid cloud environment built on the strong technological foundations provided by VMware.

Supporting SQL Server Failover Cluster Instances Without Those Pesky RDMs​

RDMs, in-guest mounts, cluster-in-a-box… these are the technologies that enable virtualized SQL Server Failover Cluster Instances (FCI) in the past. Today we now have vVols to run FCI without RDMs and real soon vSAN will support FCIs without RDMs. What if VMware supported SCSI3 reservations for standard VMDKs? This session will delve into SQL Server FCI in a VMware environment using past, existing & future technologies. This session will not only walk you through how to configure SQL FCI using the future shared VDMK option, but will also provide best practices to optimize, protect and monitor performance of VMs using shared VMDKs. A must see for Virtual SQL DBAs and virtual admins supporting SQL DBAs.​
