The PEX 2013 catalog has been live for a little while now, however I have just got confirmation of the sessions I am presenting:

Session#: CI1113 – Architecting a Cloud Infrastructure Workshop

Session Time: Tuesday 26th 13:00 – 16:00

Session#: SPO2006 – 5 Ways to make money now with vCloud Director
Speakers: Doug Hazelman and David Hill
Session Time: Wednesday 27th 12:30 – 13:30
Session Abstract:
The software-defined datacenter promises to streamline provisioning and administration, and allow IT to keep up with the demands of today’s businesses. How can you help your clients achieve these objectives – and grow your own business in the process?
This joint session by Veeam and VMware will detail 5 opportunities you can pursue now to capitalize on vCloud, including:

  • vCloud Director: vCD is not just for cloud providers! Learn what the new technology is all about and how organizations are leveraging it in both public and private clouds.
  • Cloud storage: While it might not seem lucrative at first glance, cloud storage is a great opportunity for professional services. Cloud storage means different things to different people; sorting out those requirements, evaluating alternatives and implementing a solution in the most efficient manner possible are all great ways to generate services revenue – and secure your position as a trusted advisor.
  • Data center modernization: How many of your clients still run vSphere 4.1? Or still backup VMs like physical servers? There are great opportunities in existing vSphere installations to modernize the IT infrastructure – and realize healthy returns for you and your clients.

Make the most of these and other vCloud opportunities with fresh ideas, practical advice and real-world customer perspectives. Accelerate your learning curve, uncover hidden revenue opportunities, and avoid common mistakes. You’ll return to the office with specific “next steps” for getting started.
