Session 1: Uncover the Power of VMware vSAN

The first step toward digital transformation was virtualizating your servers with vSphere. The next step is to modernize your infrastructure with hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) using VMware vSAN. In this webcast, we’ll share an overview of HCI and then dive into tips and tricks that will help you design and manage your vSAN environment. You’ll also learn how vSAN integrates with other VMware technologies including vRealize Suite and VMware Cloud on AWS, and gain a better understanding of why vSAN must be a part of your complete cloud solution.

Session 3: Using Workspace ONE to Manage your Apple Device Fleet

The Apple Mac has always been a system apart, slightly abstract from the relentless push of Windows into our business and private computing worlds. However we now see more Apple Macs in business, education and in the hands of ordinary users, with people wanting to bring them into their working lives, even to the point that business is now offering Mac adoption as a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) option. From our session we will take away a better understanding of how Workspace One can manage the entire MacOS device, delving into software provisioning, certificate management, email setup and more. Also how does this fit into a wider device managed strategy, with Windows 10 and Chromebooks for example.

Session 2: Workspace ONE: Managing in Windows 10

Workspace ONE with AirWatch configuration support for Windows 10 desktops eliminates the need for laptop imaging and provides a seamless out-of-the-box experience for employees. Manage Windows 10 desktop configurations based on dynamic smart groups, which consider device information and user attributes, and update automatically as those change. Automatically connect end users to corporate resources such as Wi-Fi and VPN, and enable secure connectivity to backend systems with advanced options for certificate authentication and per-app VPN.

AirWatch software distribution enables enterprises to manage the full lifecycle of Windows 10 desktops by automatically installing, updating and removing software packages, and also provide scripting and file management tools. Create an automated workflow for software, applications, files, scripts and commands to install on Windows 10 desktops, and configure installation during enrollment or on-demand. You can also set the package to install based on conditions, including network status or defined schedules, and deploy software updates automatically and notify the user when updates occur.

Session 1: Migrating to Workspace ONE: What You need to Know

Migrating to Workspace ONE. What does it mean for AirWatch customers? Many existing AirWatch customers ask “What am I losing by migrating to Workspace ONE?” The answer is nothing! When you extend your existing AirWatch deployment to include Workspace ONE, you gain new capabilities and the ability to conquer challenges including:

  • Deliver any application from the latest mobile cloud apps to legacy enterprise apps
  • Unified app catalog transforms employee onboarding
  • Single sign-on that federates even the most complex on-premises Active Directory Topologies
  • Password-free access leveraging Device Trust and PIN/Biometric timeout settings for authentication
We’ll also provide an overview of Workspace ONE Intelligence, the new reporting capability in Workspace ONE. Workspace ONE powered by Intelligence aggregates and correlates device, application and user data together in one place to give you a complete view of your entire digital workspace environment.

Session 5: That Firewall Did What? Advanced Troubleshooting for the VMware NSX Distributed Firewall

The VMware NSX Distributed Firewall (DFW) is the hottest topic within the NSX community. It is the WOW of micro-segmentation. But many questions arise. Who made the rule? Who changed the rule? Is the rule working? Where are these packets being stopped? Why aren’t these packets getting through? What is happening with my implementation of the DFW? These questions can be answered using the native NSX tools. We will give you an overview on how to track, manage, and troubleshoot packets traveling through the DFW using a combination of User Interface (UI) tools, the VMware Command Line Interface (vCLI) to view logs manually, and integrating with VMware vRealize Log Insight (vRLI) and VMware vRealize Network Insight (vRNI).

Session 4: Advanced VMware NSX: Demystifying the VTEP, MAC, and ARP Tables

The VMware NSX controllers are the central control point for all logical switches within a network and maintain information for all virtual machines, hosts, logical switches, and VXLANs. If you ever wanted to efficiently troubleshoot end-to-end communications in an NSX environment, it is imperative to understand the role of the NSX controllers, what information they maintain, and how the tables are populated. Well look no further. Give us an hour and you will see the various agents that the NSX controllers use for proper functionality. Use the NSX Central CLI to display the contents of the VTEP, MAC, and ARP tables. We will examine scenarios that would cause the contents of these tables to change and confirm the updates. Finally, we will examine, in detail, Controller Disconnected Operation and how this feature can minimize downtime.

Session 3: Design Multi-Layered Security in the Software-Defined Datacenter using VMware vSphere 6.5 and VMware NSX 6.4

Did you know that more than 1.5 billion data records were compromised in the first half of 2017? Experts are expecting these numbers to grow. Are you prepared? Join us to learn how a design based on VMware vSphere and VMware NSX can help you protect the integrity of your information as well as your organization. Among the areas covered will be the VMware ESXi host within vSphere that includes the host firewall and virtual machine encryption, along with the VMware vCenter layer that provides certificate management. We’ll also dive into a number of features within NSX, including the distributed Logical Router and Distributed Firewall that protect traffic within the data center and the Edge Services Gateway that secures north/south traffic through the edge firewall and virtual private network.
