ChalkTalk Video: Migrating From VMware to The Google Compute Platform

At the top of most IT project whiteboards is “cloud”. Whether cloud compute or cloud storage, organizations are trying to figuring out how to move their applications or data to these no CapEx environments. One of the most popular is the Google Compute Platform. While data movement is relatively straightforward application movement is not. One can not simply copy a VMware VM to a cloud provider and expect the virtual machine to boot. The virtual machine needs to be transformed or have additional drivers injected in order to run in those environments. In this ChalkTalk video StorageSwiss and Sureline Systems discuss how to make a migration to the Google Compute Platform and what some of the use cases might be.

Twelve years ago George Crump founded Storage Switzerland with one simple goal; to educate IT professionals about all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought after public speaker. With over 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS and SAN, Virtualization, Cloud and Enterprise Flash. Prior to founding Storage Switzerland he was CTO at one of the nation's largest storage integrators where he was in charge of technology testing, integration and product selection.
