Abstract: Data Virtualization at CHOMP (Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula)

Presenter(s): Garry Glaser, Senior Infrastructure Engineer Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula

In 2010, CHOMP (Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula) began a multi-year virtualization project. The scope of this project was to evaluate desktop and data center infrastructure then optimize each component (i.e., servers, desktops, storage, and network) by leveraging virtualization technologies. Today virtualization of the servers and desktops has been completed. Storage and network infrastructure are now being evaluated.

This session will describe the technologies and process CHOMP is using to achieve data center infrastructure optimization by leveraging virtualization. Successes, failures, lessons learned, and describing what’s next will be included.
