  • Increased Agility and Lower Cost Automated Provisioning in VMware's Private Cloud
    • Date:Thursday, January 16, 2014
    • Time:10:00 a.m. PT
    What did VMware IT learn from moving Dev/Test provisioning to private cloud? A lot. Our private cloud is transforming business functions across the company. For our DevOps teams, greater agility and automation in a private cloud environment has transformed provisioning application instances at all pre-production stages of the SLDC life cycle.

    In this webcast, Kurt Milne, VMware Director of Cloud Operations Marketing, will interview executives from VMware Dev and Ops teams to find out how Private Cloud has transformed their work and their business relationships. For the Ops team, greater agility enabled by blueprints, policies, and cloud automation and management has significantly altered the work their team performs. For the Dev team, requests for instances are completed in a day, and they no longer have work interrupted as they wait for dev/test instances, and no longer hoard scarce infrastructure resources. As a result, these teams now support rapid prototyping and innovation that wasn't possible with process-bound and time-constrained provisioning.
    Join us for this webcast and learn:
    • Key lessons that users of VMware vCloud® solutions should consider as they automate provisioning to optimize DevOps
    • How VMware automated provisioning of very complex application stacks to transform Ops support for Dev
    • Keys to how we reduced provisioning from four weeks to 24 hours, and improved the productivity of 600 developers by 20 percent

    Speakers (Overview followed by panel-style interview):
    • Host: Kurt Milne, VMware Director of Cloud Operations Marketing
    • Job Simon, VMware Vice President, IT Architecture and Strategy
    • Venkat Gopalakrishnan, VMware Director of IT, Application Ops
