Top 10 Tips and Tricks to Get the Most from VCE Vblock Systems

Pat Grazioli By Pat Grazioli Americas Theater Lead, EMC Converged Platforms (VCE) April 25, 2016

Customers I visit with often tell me how they absolutely love their Vblock Systems experience. It begins with the simplicity of buying infrastructure all in one platform, rather than traditional IT process of building infrastructure component by component. It’s modernized infrastructure for today’s Modern Data Center.

Like all EMC Converged Platforms, these systems are up and running quickly, amazingly reliable, and come with best-in-class single-call support. But you want even more, right? With some simple tips and tricks, you can take that experience to the next level—and derive even more value from your investment.

Join me at EMC World in Las Vegas for a lecture/demo where I’ll share best practices such as:

  • How system onboarding can help you move to production faster and quickly gain a strong comfort level with converged platforms
  • How to create a system runbook so you can operate your Vblock environment with even less effort
  • How VCE Vision Intelligent Operations software makes system health checks and upgrades an easy part of your routine, further reducing business risk
  • Why the VCE Release Certification Matrix (RCM) is a necessary ingredient for your success

The session will be held twice (Mon. May 2, 12-1 p.m. and Thurs. May 5, 8:30-9:30 a.m.)

There’s a lot to gain whether you’re considering Vblocks, just starting out with them, or already a seasoned pro. I don’t want to give away all the “secrets” yet—so make sure to reserve your spot in one of the two sessions. I look forward to seeing you!
