Virtualization Technology News and Information
TMC Adds Virtualization Summit to ITEXPO East 2010 in Miami
Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), a leading global media company, today announced the launch of Virtualization Summit at ITEXPO, a full-day workshop helping companies understand the numerous benefits of deploying virtualization solutions for data centers, communications, storage, and other areas.

Virtualization Summit at ITEXPO will take place Thursday, January 21, 2010, day two of the three-day ITEXPO, at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Florida.

Admission to Virtualization Summit at ITEXPO is included with any ITEXPO paid conference plan. Registration is open now on the event Web site.

Virtualization is software technology which uses a physical resource - such as a server - and divides it up into virtual resources called virtual machines (VMs). Virtualization allows users to consolidate physical resources, simplify deployment and administration, and reduce power and cooling requirements.

The Virtualization Summit at ITEXPO helps enterprises understand the vast advantages of a virtualization strategy, and explains how to select and deploy the solution best for your particular situation.

Conference sessions held during Virtualization Summit at ITEXPO include:

What is Virtualization? Business Impact and Benefits
Thursday, January 21 – 8:30 am
As the demand intensifies for information and applications to be delivered faster and more efficiently to more end users, advances in virtualization technology are driving a revolution in enterprise IT. Businesses are increasingly deploying virtualization to lower operational and infrastructure costs, increase flexibility and performance, improve resource utilization and management. This session looks at why virtualization is becoming the hottest trend in IT and business benefits it delivers.

Virtualizing Communications
Thursday, January 21 – 1:00 pm
The traditional argument against the adoption of IP-based voice solutions has been quality of service. While latency is acceptable with data applications, degraded voice communication is not an option in business environments. IP communications, however, has moved beyond the challenges of voice quality, and now, the latest technologies are enabling the convergence of voice and data in virtualized environments, extending the benefits of virtualization beyond data applications to all communications-related services. This session will discuss the current opportunities and future trends allowing the virtualization of voice applications.

Virtualization Strategies
Thursday, January 21 – 2:00 pm
There are a multitude of ways to implement virtualization technology to lower operational costs, reduce physical footprint, increase infrastructure flexibility, enable mobile workforces, implement backup and disaster recovery plans, and simplify IT management. This session will consider the various ways virtualization is becoming a part of IT strategies to meet the various business needs of enterprises today.

Virtualization Implementation: Best Practices and Pitfalls to Avoid
Thursday, January 21 – 3:00 pm
Regardless of how virtualization is employed, its success depends on proper planning and deployment to ensure maximum benefits are realized. By carefully devising a virtualization plan, from design to implementation to configuration and management, IT managers can take the guesswork out of the migration to a virtual environment. This session will leverage the successes and mishaps from real-world deployments to deliver a set of best practices for a successful implementation.

Virtualization Technology
Thursday, January 21 – 4:00 pm
Once a business has made the decision to move to a virtualized environment, the key decision becomes building the infrastructure and architecture. In doing so, there are many technology options that will define the particular benefits you will achieve. This session will consider the various technology options available and the benefits of each to a virtualization strategy, including server hardware, operating systems, networking solutions, management tools, and security components.

“Virtualization has proven itself to be a technology which reduces by allowing resources to be more fully utilized. By minimizing hardware waste, corporations are also able to save electricity and design systems which are far more redundant while utilizing less resources. Of special importance is the recent past where a number of communications vendors have announced virtualized communications servers allowing communications infrastructure to take its rightful place in the data center as a fully virtualized application. IP has more rapidly enabled voice and video to travel along the same packet-networks as other applications – similarly, virtualized communications allows voice, video and fax apps to live in the same virtualized environment as other applications,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and conference chairman for ITEXPO.
