Decoding my VMworld agenda 2/3

The second blog series of decoding my vmworld agenda is about vSAN. As for the topics I pick every year to focus on vSAN is one of those topics. So I will be attending these 5 sessions:

vSAN Operations [HCI1997TE]

Deconstructing vSAN: A Deep Dive into the Internals of vSAN [HCI1342BE]

Achieving Enterprise Comfort with vSAN [HCI2344BE]

Automating vSAN from CLI to API: PowerCLI, Govc, and Beyond [HCI1864BE]

vSAN Administration Optimized Through vRealize Operations and Log Insight [HCI1339BE]

 

Why vSAN Operations?

We ran in some problems with vSAN 6.6 when the sizing/design of vSAN couldn’t handle our workload. Clearly our approach wasn’t what it should have been. I hope to get a much better understanding how to size and design vSAN.

 

Why deconstructing vSAN?

I had my fair share of troubleshooting vSAN 6.6. I think I know for about 85/90% how vSAN works under the hood. So this session for me will be a crosscheck if I know as much as I think I do.

 

Why Achieving Enterprise Comfort with vSAN?

I found that we struggled to get the right information out of vROPs when we had to troubleshoot vSAN 6.6. I hope to get a better understanding of the ways to monitor vSAN in a large enterprise environment.

 

Why Automating vSAN from CLI to API: PowerCLI, Govc, and Beyond?

So far I haven’t done much with API calls. I hope to get to see the true power of coding against vSAN.

 

Why vSAN Administration Optimized Through vRealize Operations and Log Insight?

Like I wrote above. We found it hard to get the right information out of vROPs and vRLI to troubleshoot vSAN 6.6. I hope to get more information on how to combine those two tools and be able to troubleshoot much faster.
