By Calvin Zito, @HPStorageGuy - During our HP Bootcamp at VMware Partner Exchange (PEX) last week, I was able to watch a presentation by Jeff Boles, Sr Analyst from Taneja Group. Jeff talked about testing he had lead looking at VM density with HP 3PAR compared to a traditional array. While I've talked about VM density here on ATSB and have highlighted our "Double your VM density guarantee", Jeff had some great information that really brings the story home for me.

Join the experts for a discussion about the common obstacles, pitfalls and opportunities companies face as they evolve beyond virtualization and cloud to a software-defined data center.
The IT space is awash in buzz about the concept of a software-defined datacenter (SDDC), which promises to abstract the datacenter from its underlying hardware, enabling IT to connect and configure computing resources in new, powerful ways.
Join our live Google+ Hangout discussion to hear firsthand from IT professionals and other experts on their transition from virtualization and cloud to a SDDC.
How to build the foundation for SDDC
Common obstacles to avoid
Strategies for realizing the full benefits of cloud
Predictions for how SDDC will evolve and impact IT in the future
Moderated by JJ DiGeronimo of VMware, our panel will include:

Remote and branch office (ROBO) storage presents unique challenges to enterprise IT and storage professionals. Meeting the needs of dispersed end-users with limited on-site IT support while managing growth in capacity, taming complexity, and keeping costs under control is a daunting task. The larger the number of remote sites, the bigger the challenge becomes.
However, a new approach is redefining ROBO storage deployments. It leverages both cloud and local storage, resulting in significant cost reduction and simplified management while providing end-users with fast access to files, easy recovery of backups and the ability to share files both locally and in the cloud.
Join storage analysts from Taneja Group and CTERA in this December 2012 on-demand webcast as they explore a comprehensive approach to ROBO storage and discuss:
*ROBO end-user storage needs vs. corporate IT considerations
*Pros and cons of alternative approaches to managing ROBO storage, including: Traditional approaches employing local file servers and tape backup, as well as remote backup, WAN optimization, and cloud storage gateways
*How leveraging cloud storage technology integrated with managed local storage appliances can optimize cost, performance and management overhead
*How this approach can scale to many thousands of sites, providing speedy deployment, centralized management and ease of use for ROBO end users.
