BLADE Network Technologies, Inc. (BLADE), the trusted leader in data center networking, will present viewpoints about 10 Gigabit Ethernet, cloud computing and network virtualization for the dynamic data center at BladeSystems Insight at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 20-21.

Tuchler will also be a participant on the Virtualization Recipes for Success Panel: "Real World Stories from Today and What's Coming Tomorrow," moderated by Barb Goldworm of Focus Consulting, along with panelists from Cisco, Fujitsu, INX and VMware.

BLADE executives will also present case studies and examine the networking requirements for cloud computing in two customer presentations.

"Companies have rushed to deploy server virtualization in order to enjoy the benefits of consolidation -- namely, reduced capital and operating costs," writes Bob Laliberte, analyst for Enterprise Strategy Group. "The promise of server virtualization also includes enhanced mobility and availability enabled by networked storage. However, ensuring network performance and security for highly mobile virtual machines (VMs) can quickly become an operations nightmare. In order to fulfill the promise of a dynamic environment, VMs need to be supported by an intelligent network. While many vendors are just talking about this concept, BLADE Network Technologies is actively delivering products to solve the problem -- for all server virtualization technologies."
