This is an open-mic panel session with the Global Cloud Practice VMware Certified Design Experts, who will answer advanced- and expert-level questions about cloud architecture and software-defined design.
“Service Providers globally are enthusiastically embracing hybrid cloud as both a way of reducing costs and improving the quality of service they provide to end customers. To achieve this, Service Providers are looking to VMware vCloud Air Network and Veeam to help them build a scalable cost-effective cloud solution. In this session, we will get into the details of the technology. Weâ€™ll focus on how these solutions are architected and what that implies in real-life implementations. A participant in this session will leave with a technical understanding of how to leverage technology from Veeam and VMware to provide a successful cloud-based storage service.”
