Underscoring the conference theme, "Hello Freedom," more than 300 presentations and breakout sessions from companies and customers driving innovation in the virtualization industry will focus on the liberating and transformative effects of virtualization on nearly every aspect of datacenter, desktop and cloud computing. More than 200 sponsors and exhibitors are supporting the conference including platinum sponsors: Cisco, Dell, EMC, HP, IBM, Intel, NetApp, Symantec and WYSE who will also be delivering super session keynotes.

Leading off the general session keynote presentations will be VMware President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Maritz who will examine the rapidly expanding role of virtualization as IT organizations implement innovative solutions to achieve unprecedented levels of agility, reliability and cost savings.

The "Hello Freedom" theme highlights the ability of virtualization to empower IT professionals to rid themselves of the technical limitations of conventional computing, and recognizes the resourceful, creative and forward-thinking IT professionals and developers who leverage virtualization to turn possibilities into reality and potential into impact. Thousands of VMware customers worldwide are transforming their organizations by saying "goodbye" to the inflexible and inefficient traditional approach to computing and saying "hello" to a future of infinite possibilities powered by virtualization.
