Virtualization Technology News and Information
Hyper9 to Present at SYS-CON Virtualization Conference & Expo and Interop Las Vegas 2010
This month, Hyper9, Inc. will present sessions at two leading industry events, SYS-CON Virtualization Conference & Expo and Interop Las Vegas 2010, to help datacenter managers address the virtualization management challenges of dynamic datacenters.

Unlike physical components, virtual resources can be deployed, connected and reconfigured quickly; they are also inherently mobile and connect to one another through abstract, transient relationships. This contributes to an exploding volume of management data that is difficult to capture and rationalize into actionable business insights.

And the challenges don’t stop there. As virtualization focus shifts from conserving resources to optimizing business processes, virtual resources are being used to deploy mission-critical applications that drive revenue and often represent the face of a company to its customers. In these environments, high reliability is the number one priority.

Hyper9’s two presentations will include:

The Dynamic Datacenter – Where Static Virtualization Tools Don't Work


Dave McCrory, Founder & CTO, Hyper9

Today enterprises are virtualizing more of their IT infrastructure than ever, leading to a whole new set of operational challenges. From rising data volumes and complexity to lack of cross-domain visibility and shifting data center roles and responsibilities, today's virtual environments are too dynamic for traditional (think: "static") management approaches. Even new approaches targeted for virtualization management contain hard-wired static reports and management views. It's time for a more mature approach to virtualization. Join this session to learn about the new wave of virtualization management, including the top 5 things to consider when virtualizing business critical applications.

Panel session: Managing Your Virtual Environment


Jonathan Reeve, Director of Product Management, Hyper9; with Stephen Elliot, Vice President of Strategy, CA; Rich Boudeau, Vice President of Product Marketing and Management, DynamicOps; and Barb Goldworm, President and Chief Analyst, FOCUS.

Along with its many benefits, the move to a virtual infrastructure brings new challenges to managing the data center. These challenges include virtual server sprawl (largely due to the ease of provisioning virtual servers), capacity and performance management of the virtualized infrastructure, and troubleshooting problems across the virtual and physical environment. While network and systems management toolsets have been around for decades, are they able to handle a virtual world? Hundreds of new tools have emerged to specifically address virtualization management, while existing tools are evolving with new virtual capabilities. Learn about how both of these types of tools can be implemented to help you with the long-running challenge of successful end-to-end management.
