Introduction and History
The VMware Elite Database Workshop Program was started in 2013 as a collaborative effort between the Cloud Platform Business Unit, then referred to as vSphere Product Marketing team and the VMware Global Center of Excellence. The program brings together database and certain applications experts in a variety of database and application disciplines at VMware in Palo Alto (Now globally) to meet with VMware and partner personal from the highest level executives to the engineers who architect the platform and write code. A variety of open discussions and exercises facilitate an intense learning environment leading to the expansion of a broader community of database experts who have extensive knowledge of VMware virtualized infrastructure.

The VMware Vision Any Application, Any Device on Any Cloud
SDDC (Software Defined Data Center) Built on Vshpere, NSX, and vSAN
With vSphere you can manage, secure your applications across multiple clouds
Virtualization is the core of what is happening in the cloud today.
Traditional Silos, very difficult to continue like that
It is recognized that business critical applications are going to be virtualized
The more you want to automate, the more you need to abstract
Carl McQuillan, Pure Storage VP, EMEA SE & Customer Success
Spinning disks is technology that is over 50 years old
We wanted to pivot the economics of storage, we wanted to make flash cheaper
Database Applications the largest use case within Pure Storage
Everything can be consolidated today in a flash environment
100% NVMe Enterprise All-Flash Array
Data is no longer generated by humans, its generated by machine
Solid State fails 1000 times less than disk
Pure wanted to bring Moore’s law to the storage industry
During Day 1 VMware Experts Program Oracle edition someone talked about pure storage offering storage arrays at the speed of intel.
Valentin Bondzio, VMware Senior Staff Technical Support Engineer
Valentin did a great presentation on VMware vSphere Core & SDDC – vMotion, The Decoupling of the Server and the Host. Loved this history of vMotion Valentin shared at Day 1 VMware Experts Program Oracle edition.
- ESX 2.0 vMotion
- ESX 5.1 VMotion without shared storage
- ESX 6.0 Long Distance vMotion
- 150 ms network round trip time (RTT)
- 250 MBPS minimum recommended network bandwidth
- ESX 6.5 Encrypted vMotion
vMotion comes at a cost.
vMotion is much more efficient in vSphere 6.5
The more Nics you give vMotion, the faster it will go
Yvonne Murphy, VMware Staff Technical Support Engineer,

Somu Rajarathinam Pure Storage
Solutions Architect at Pure Storage
My favorite quote from Somu Rajarathinam was “You cannot claim it is a backup if it is on the same storage”. Somu is a great presenter who really knows Pure Storage capabilities. Great presentor with a winning product.
Alex Infanzon Pure Storage
Applications Solution Manager
Alex Infanzon showed us the Pure Storage Manual. It was one page.
Pure Storage was purpose built for cloud and flash-storage
Pure storage has inline data deduplication
At Pure Storage, we manage in terms of writes
Pure Storage is always encryption at rest
Does not matter if it’s 1TB or 10TB, it takes the same amount of time for a snap shot with Pure Storage
You cannot claim its a backup if it is in the same storage
At Pure Storage, we do global level De-Duplication
