While I spend most of my time in the trenches talking about software development for the cloud, it’s important to realize that virtualization technologies are one of the primary reasons the cloud exists. Without it the economies of scale, elasticity, and rapid provisioning would be nearly impossible.
Here’s a great chance to get some deep background on just that technology! The Virtualization Group-Boston is sponsoring this 4th annual event, held this year at The Lantana in Randolph, MA, Saturday, March 10th, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The line-up includes some fantastic speakers in this space, including Brian Madden, who will deliver the keynote on the topic of the current state of virtualization of desktop, and Paul Thurrott, presenting on WIndows 8 Hyper V. My IT Pro colleague, Dan Stolts, will be delivering a couple of sessions, including one discussing what every IT Admin should know about the cloud, and there’s more as you can see from the schedule below:
There is a small fee of $25 to cover the venue and logistic costs of the event, which wouldn’t have been possible without the tremendous support of the sponsors, including Microsoft, Citrix, Coraid, Desktone, Veeam, StarWind Software, AppZero, Leostream, Virtual Bridges, TechTarget and more!
