USi CTO Toby Ford to Keynote InfoWorld's Virtualization Executive Forum
USi (, an AT&T company and a leading Application Service Provider (ASP), today announced that Chief Technology Officer Toby Ford will keynote this month's Virtualization Executive Forum.

Scheduled for September 25 at 8:45 am, Ford's keynote addresses challenges organizations face when moving from dedicated environments to virtual ones and how to work with business users to gain the greatest benefit from virtualization technology. Additionally, Ford joins a panel on September 24 focused on successful migrations to virtualized environments.

The full agenda features strong end user voices throughout the Case Studies Track where IT experts representing AT&T, Merrill Lynch, City of Richmond, Time Warner, Credit Suisse, Lessard Group, Apache Corp., US Foodservice, Clarian Health Partners and Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General will share their virtualization experiences, challenges and results. Plus, the deep-dive Technical Track will detail executives need to know to build a strategy, migrate to virtual systems, monitor VMs and scale a virtual infrastructure.

Ford was selected to keynote because he led USi's effort to move to a virtualized environment, which resulted in USiPinnacle, a virtual infrastructure that manages the workload between processors, storage, memory, and networks to meet fluctuations on-demand, cost-effectively. Many of USi's service offerings today run on USiPinnacle, saving clients money and providing them scalable infrastructure to meet peak demands of their businesses.
