VMware VVOLs is an integration framework to enable VM-centric operations on external storage systems and extends the Software Defined Storage control plane to external storage through the use of the vSphere Storage Policy-Based Management. As a member of the VMware Virtual Volumes Developers Program, NexGen engineered the ability to surface its performance Quality of Service (QoS) policies and service levels in VMware vCenter™, which gives administrators the ability to provide the right storage service levels to each individual VM for extremely granular control.

The series of sixteen technical seminars kicks-off on May 12, 2015 in Denver, Colorado and continues throughout 2015. Dates and locations include:

Events are also planned for London and Amsterdam.  For more information or to register for an event, click here.
