Migration to VMC to AWS: Best Practices and Gotchas

FSL has evacuated three of its major data centers to VMC on AWS using HCX, targeting 1,000 users accessing critical applications for hospitals/banking sectors. With use cases like Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Intrusion Detection System (IDS/IPS), 3rd party next-gen firewalls, AWS native solutions, and Transit VPC, FSL using VMC has found a solution for their complex infra and legacy application hierarchy.

VMware Security: Carbon Black Cloud and Workspace ONE Intelligence


When will endpoint management converge with endpoint security? It has actually already happened. The Carbon Black cloud integrates with Workspace ONE Intelligence to offer UEM's first security data-driven decision engine.

SD-WAN by VeloCloud Deployment Designs

We'll discuss how to design next-gen SD-WAN networks to meet the needs of different scenarios, including enterprises moving applications and workloads to SaaS and Clouds. We will also discuss Service Providers and managed service providers (MSPs) looking to augment their backbone network with software-defined application routing capabilities. This session will also go over how Federal or high-security customers can get the desired benefits of SD-WAN with private, on-premise deployments (FIPS, SSO).  Finally, we will address how to augment and replace legacy Cisco environments with SD-WAN.
