John Yani Arrasjid - Cloud Evolution and Revolution: Catering for Mission Critical Workloads
John Yani Arrasjid presents on the evolution of cloud. He uses his perspective as an infrastructure architect for virtualization and cloud, and findings from his research in the Dell EMC and Virtustream offices of the CTO.
Mission critical workloads now run in the cloud based on technical capabilities and automation supporting high SLAs for the enterprise. Mission critical workloads are expecting support for hybridity (on- and off-premise) and multi-cloud (providing choice). New types of mission critical workloads include AI, healthcare, transportation, and industrial IoT. The cloud is no longer just a sandbox. The capabilities offered through software defined technologies, partnership between IT and OT (Operational Technology) teams, and higher levels of automation and self-healing infrastructures based on machine learning. Examples presented are not exclusive to what is available.
John Yani Arrasjid currently works in the Virtustream Office of the CTO, handling the technical relationship with VMware and Dell EMC, and working on advanced research areas for cloud solutions, including industrial IoT, AI, and secure ledger in a cloud for mission critical workloads.
John spent twelve years at VMware focusing on architect enablement, consulting solutions, development of the VCDX program, and the lead architect for the vCloud Architecture Toolkit.
John holds the first VCDX certification, and has published 6 books around virtualization, cloud, and IT infrastructure design. John has also spent 6 years on the USENIX Association Board of Directors, including his role as Vice President.
