Earlier this month I wrote about some must see business sessions on the mission-critical systems track at HP Discover. We also have some excellent technical sessions at Discover this year that dig into how HP and partners are working together to create a complete, integrated mission-critical experience for customers with established environments (HP-UX, NonStop & OpenVMS) as well as emerging mission-critical environments, based on x86 as we advance Project Odyssey. Use the Discover session scheduler to mark these in your event calendar and reserve a seat now:
Must See Technical Sessions
Mission-critical clustering with Serviceguard for Linux (Session TB2182)
HP offers an unparalleled mission-critical x86 platform with flexible scalability and uncompromised availability. In this session you will learn about new features in Serviceguard for Linux as well as solutions for deploying your most demanding applications on HP’s mission-critical Linux platform. This session will also share differences between Serviceguard on HP-UX and Serviceguard for Linux as part of Project Odyssey.
HP Integrity Virtual Machines v6.1 and vPars v6.1 overview — new capabilities for virtualization (Session TB2185)
Hear about the new features in HP Integrity Virtual Machines and Virtual Partitions software and learn the difference between these partitioning solutions. Find out how to enable multiple instances of HP-UX to run simultaneously on a single Integrity server or hard partition with HPVM and vPars version 6.1.
Sybase ASE mission critical on HP-UX and Linux (Session TB3157)
Learn how you can implement Sybase ASE databases, even for your mission-critical applications. HP provides a comprehensive portfolio of servers and blades (x86 and Itanium), Serviceguard clustering software and data center management software to protect your business applications. These technologies help consolidate server landscapes to mitigate risk and lower total cost of ownership.
Solid state devices: options and best practices (Session TW2191)
Before deploying solid state storage, you should consider the different characteristics and optimizations. In this technical workshop you will learn about the solid state offerings available for the DL980 and Integrity servers. We will also share best practices learned from testing, benchmarking and integrating these solid state devices—such as VMA and IO Accelerators—in various configurations and application environments.
Best practices for deploying Linux on the HP ProLiant DL980 (Hands on Lab HOL2200)
Learn best practices for configuring the ProLiant DL980 for Linux with tips and tricks to ensure that the DL980 is set up to optimize the solution. We will review the hardware configuration, Linux ccNUMA considerations, important BIOS settings and recommendations for Oracle implementations.
