Title: Applying predictive analysis and algorithms to prevent capacity problems in moving to or operating under virtualized or cloud environments?
Date/Time: Wednesday, April 18, 2012, 6:30 - 8:45 pm
Virtualization and private clouds show great promise for server consolidations and infrastructure reductions, but these complex environments can be difficult to deploy and manage. This talk will discuss the deployment and management issues in today’s clusters, including Clouds with a focus on the constraints and technologies used to predict when Virtual Machines need to move or resize in order to adjust to changing workload growth, hardware upgrades or constraint changes.
• Introduction to Virtual Machines and why they are being deployed
• Issues in managing large virtualized deployments
• Why we must addressing these issues
• Technologies to address these issues
• Concluding remarks
Dr. Lehr has a Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University, has seven patents and has written over 20 academic and industrial papers.
