Partner Exchange 2012 catalog and session timings announced

The Catalog for partner exchange 2012 has been released  I will be presenting the below sessions and have listed some of the cloud sessions I will be attending too.

Session 1269: Upgrading the vCloud Solution Stack in an End to End Environment

Abstract: Although there are many individual guides on upgrading the different components on a vCloud deployment, none take into account the overall process. This session is intended to outline the entire process in a four phase approach. This process was devleopmed in house at VMware and already used at other customers successfully. Although the process was developed around moving from 1.0 to 1.5, the process as outlined can be used for other major upgrades that will be coming from VMware.

Presenters: Chris Colotti and David Hill

Session 1359: Architecting a Cloud Infrastructure
Abstract: This session will discuss the various design considerations when architecting the foundation for every solid cloud environment: vSphere 5.0. We will start with sizing and scaling and end with some operational guidance. Different examples will be used to show the impact design considerations can have on the availability of your services.

Presenters: Duncan Epping and David Hill
