Hitting Refresh with VMware + Intel: a Live Case Study

On this Video Meetup, we’ll talk with Matt Douglas from Smithfield Foods to hear how they tackled some classic data center challenges by deploying hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) with VMware and Intel. We’ll also be joined by HCI experts from Intel and VMware, including Mr. StorageNinja himself, John Nicholson.

Customers are using VMware vSAN technology to build powerful, flexible, and scalable infrastructure. By now you’ve heard about the benefits of HCI, but did you know that thanks to advances in server technology, it’s more straightforward to setup and more cost-effective than ever? But don’t take our word for it!

What we’re discussing:
– Lessons learned from Smithfield Foods’ vSAN planning and deployment
– Smithfield Foods’ improvements in performance, availability, and TCO post-deployment
– Who should and should not be using HCI: Our experts weigh in
