CiRBA and Burton Group to Co-Present Webcast on Virtualization Management

CiRBA Inc., a leader in Data Center Intelligence software, today announced that it will host a live Webcast on Wednesday, May 14, at 12:00 p.m. EDT entitled “Now What?” Successful Strategies for Optimizing Virtual Infrastructure After Consolidation.”  This one-hour event will be co-presented by two of the leading minds in virtualization: Chris Wolf, senior analyst at Burton Group and Andrew Hillier, CiRBA Co-founder and CTO.

When couples bring their first child home from the hospital, they often find themselves facing “Now What?” syndrome. The baby is home, but what are they supposed to do next? Ultimately, parental instincts kick in and everyone has a laugh about their “Now what?” moment later in life. Unfortunately, virtualization management isn’t as instinctive. Many organizations spend months planning for the arrival of their data center’s newest baby – virtualization, and following completion of the virtualization migration project find themselves in a “now what?” moment. 

Who is presenting?  Chris Wolf, senior analyst, Burton Group and Andrew Hillier, co-founder and CTO, CiRBA

What:   In this webcast, Burton Group senior analyst Chris Wolf and CiRBA CTO Andrew Hillier will take a deep look at steps organizations should follow after a successful virtualization implementation. Like a newborn baby, virtualization can get into a lot of trouble if the collective virtual infrastructure is not effectively managed and optimized. With the proper approach to virtualization management, you can spot potential performance bottlenecks, governance red flags and continue to optimize utilization despite constant change within the environment.

When:  Wednesday, May 14: 12:00-1:00 p.m. EDT
