Using Virtualization to Transform Your Datacenter by Stephen Herrod
How can virtualization help transform your IT environment into a dynamic datacenter? Dr Stephen Herrod will explore how a virtualized IT infrastructure gives any organization a sustainable competitive advantage. The industry is shifting, Herrod believes, and the power of virtualization is being unleashed, allowing for reduced costs, more efficient use of resources, increased availability of applications and faster responsiveness to business needs.
In short, key opinion-formers in the field of infrastructure and pioneers of virtualization technologies of all types are speaking at the 3rd International Virtualization Conference & Expo 2008 East. You will hear from leading domain experts who will tell and show you how - once the server, IO, data, and applications are virtualized - the resulting possibilities and opportunities really are endless. These cornerstones open the market for management, security, converged fabrics, and a whole host of technologies that can free up the data center and open new markets.
