SAP Virtualization and Cloud Week 2012, April 17 – 19: Bring Clarity to the Clouds!

The 6th annual SAP Virtualization and Cloud Week 2012 is returning to SAP Labs, Palo Alto, California on April 17-19.  If you’re a customer or partner working to virtualize or bring your SAP landscape into the cloud, this is a must not miss event! 

This is an intimate event with only 200 attendees, which builds the SAP community working with cloud computing and virtualization technologies.  The intimate environment of hosting the event at SAP Labs fosters the networking and connections of the community.

SAP experts, Customers, and Partners, who are the foremost experts on virtualization and cloud computing solutions from SAP, come together at one event to provide their expertise.

The sessions will cover the latest on SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management, the emerging cloud standard – TOSCA, SAP HANA in virtualized environments, security for the cloud, and much more.

SAP Virtualization and Cloud Week 2012 will open with keynote from Juergen Kreuziger, Senior Vice President, TIP Core Lifecycle Management, SAP AG

Not only will you get the latest update from SAP and the SAP partners focused on cloud and virtualization technology, don’t miss these customer sessions showcasing these technologies in action!

  • TECH09 – SAP Landscape Virtualization Management Ramp-Up Experience @ Bosch – Hans-Werner Cedl, System Architect, Robert Bosch GmbH
  • TECH05 – Implementing SAP Development & Quality Assurance Landscapes on the Cloud – Shahrezad McNeil, Vice-President – Information Technology, Lionsgate
  • TECH19 – US Army Shared Service Center – Migration and Virtualization Case Study Darryl Vegh, Director, SSC Lab, US Army, RDECOM-ARDEC

I also asked on twitter (#SAPvweek or @sapvweek) for the sessions people were looking forward too. I only got one response from SAP Mentor, Tammy Powlas, that she was excited to see TRND05 – SAP BI in the Cloud-Where It Makes Sense and Where It Doesn’t from Ashish Morzaria, Director – Solution Management, SAP.

On Tuesday, April 17, there will be an evening reception for you to meet with our sponsors and network with other attendees.  This reception will be followed by a panel sponsored by Churchill Club and GABA: Cloud Computing – 2015 and Beyond.

Finally, if you want to take your SAP Virtualization and Cloud Week experience even deeper, we’re offering a deep-dive workshop.  The seating for this workshop is limited to only 60 attendees and has an additional fee of $195 to attend.

Manage your SAP Landscape using SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management (LVM) on Virtualized and Cloud Infrastructures

SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management is a new solution which enables customers to configure, deploy, monitor and manage SAP systems and landscapes in physical and virtual/cloud infrastructures. The product offers a completely automated framework for generating copies, clones and refreshes of SAP systems resulting in reduction of manual processes and costs.

This product is targeted primarily at our existing on-premise customers who seek to increase their business agility and reduce their total cost of ownership (TCO) with respect to their SAP deployments.

This Workshop provides a technical deep-dive in to LVM which includes management of servers and SAP instances within the landscape. Additionally you can see in action some of the key product capabilities such as SAP system cloning, copy and refresh as well as automatic capacity management.  Enhance your skill and product knowledge with hands-on exercises.

So get your heads out of the clouds by bringing your SAP landscape into the cloud!

      I've attended the last three of these events virtually and they have all been great events. Unfortunately I'm on holiday this time so I'm not going to be able to attend and will have to content myself with watching the replays later. If SAP infrastructure is your thing, you'll get a lot from this - don't miss it!

      Thanks Steve! We are planning to live-stream the keynote this year, and have the rest of the sessions available online post event.  The onsite event is focused on networking and building the virtualization community. However, we make all the content available post event, since the in person event has such limited space.  We want to ensure that everyone who is interested in these technologies, still has access to the content.

      I'd really love to be able to attend in person, but it is too far for me.

      While it doesn't affect me this year, I think it is a shame if the sessions aren't all live-streamed. I have really enjoyed that format for the last 3 years, and you can get a lot of interaction with on-site people via Twitter. That just won't happen if you can only watch replays. Please, please, please consider re-instating the livestreams for next year's event. Please...

      thanks for your feedback.  The live stream required a large number of people involved to moderate the sessions, but we only had a handful of people watching the live stream sessions.  We decided to refocus our resources on the in-person event experience rather than the live stream. However, we still want to ensure the content is available for those who are unable to attend, so the session recordings will be available post event for free.
