Appistry Founder Presenting on Convergence of Grid and Virtualization at GridWorld 2006
Appistry, the pioneer and leading provider of application fabric software, today announced that Founder and Chief Strategist Bob Lozano has been selected to present at this year's GridWorld conference. Lozano will moderate a panel exploring the convergence of grid and virtualization, bringing together users and vendors to discuss what have become two of the hottest buzzwords in IT. Together, these technologies enable a new world of "real-time" IT infrastructure, which offers great promise to the enterprise, coupling the scalability benefits of grid computing with the operational and development benefits of virtualization.

"If you consider the staggering amount of data available to today's enterprise, it becomes clear that its competitiveness depends on the ability to turn that data into meaningful decisions and insights, which in turn allow it to create better products, identify new opportunities and better serve customers," said Lozano. "Together, grid and virtualization enable this competitiveness by making processing power less expensive to purchase and operate."

Appistry is one of a cadre of emerging firms that have been driving the convergence of grid computing and virtualization with its application fabric software. Application fabric software, such as Appistry Enterprise Application Fabric (Appistry EAF), provides 'scale-out' virtualization, which enables enterprises to dramatically simplify the task of deploying, managing and developing large-scale, time-critical applications.

Lozano will deliver his presentation on Wednesday, September 13 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time. GridWorld 2006 will be held at the Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C.
