7:00-7:45 FSLogix – the Perfect Layering Solution for vCloud Air

FSLogix Apps eliminates multiple layers of management infrastructure, creating a single, unified approach to image management, profile access, and application provisioning. This new, award winning approach can decrease user logon time by > 85%, dramatically reduce server and network overhead, with no sequencing, repackaging, or monolithic, proprietary approach. See a live demonstration, and learn how Profile Containers, Unified Base Images, and Image Masking are revolutionizing persistent and non-persistent cloud based desktops.

8:00-8:45 Infinio - Disruptive Innovations in Enterprise Storage

Speaker: Scott Davis
Title: CTO, Infinio

A new wave of disruptive innovations in the storage industry is shaking up familiar architectures and technologies. These innovations promise to deliver drive down performance and capacity costs, simplify storage in the data center and challenge the long-established vendors and architectures. Hybrid Arrays are the new normal while All-Flash Arrays and Hyper-Converged Infrastructure solutions are serious contenders in the appropriate use cases. This session will also cover the emergence of decoupled architectures that separate the delivery of storage performance from storage capacity with unique technologies optimized for each instead of the traditional integrated storage appliances of yesterday. Speaker Scott Davis is uniquely qualified to cover this topic as former VMware CTO of both end user computing and storage, and current industry blogger and CTO at Infinio.

This session will cover disruptive storage technologies and the solutions they are driving. Attendees will learn about:

• Storage Performance technology innovations such as PCI-e and DIMM-based Flash/SSD

• Storage Capacity technology innovations such as SMR (shingled) drives

• Object and cloud storage trends

• Storage product architectures such as all-flash and hybrid arrays, hyper-converged infrastructure and software-defined storage

• Decoupled (capacity and performance) I/O optimization technologies

Leave this session understanding more about the architectures and tradeoffs of the next wave of storage technologies.

Speaker Bio:
Scott Davis is Chief Technology Officer at Infinio, a venture-backed storage startup company where he drives product and technology strategy and was formerly CTO of VMware’s End User Computing Business Unit. He was instrumental in driving product and technology strategy spanning the breadth of VMware’s product lines and also served as VMware’s Chief Data Center/Storage Architect and Field CTO. A recognized expert in virtualization, clustering, operating systems, file systems, storage, and end-user computing technologies such as VDI, graphics protocols and mobility/EMM, Mr. Davis has held senior engineering and business management roles with both startup ventures and established industry firms. Prior to joining VMware, he was President, CTO and Founder of Virtual Iron Software, which was acquired by Oracle and became the core of OracleVM. Previously, he was CTO at Mangosoft, an Internet software and storage company with pioneering peer-to-peer clustering, caching and file system products. Scott began his career at Digital Equipment Corporation where he was Technical Director for the industry-acclaimed VAXCluster and VMS Volume Shadowing products, as well as DEC’s Windows NT clustering technology (later sold to Microsoft as the genesis of Microsoft ‘Wolfpack’ Cluster Server). Scott holds 17 US patents for clustering, storage and virtualization technologies and his products have won awards at Comdex, Demo and LinuxWorld.
