SYS-CON's 5th International Virtualization Conference & Expo: Themes & Topics

A round-up of the Virtualization themes & topics being discussed March 30 - April 1, 2009, in New York

From Automation to Virtual Security, a round-up of the Virtualization themes & topics being discussed March 30-April 1, 2009, in New York City by the world-class speaker faculty at the 5th International Virtualization Conference & Expo being held in The Roosevelt Hotel, in midtown Manhattan.

Beyond Datacenter Virtualization - How can the benefits of virtualization now be applied to transform branch and remote office efficiency and productivity? Where do new opportunities lie for realizing a truly dynamic enterprise? Certeon's Co-Founder & Director of Research, Shawn Cooney, will be giving a session in NYC in which he will argue that it is time for virtualization to take its impact beyond the datacenter.

Business Change Through Virtualization - Virtualization transforms a hardware purchase into a time-boxed resource rental for the customers of IT. How else can we leverage this technology change to drive business change in our IT organizations? Fortisphere Co-Founder & CTO John Suit will in his New York session discuss the types of management platforms that will drive eager adoption of virtualization and IT services across the organization.

Client-Hosted Virtualization - Gartner reports that the five-year TCO of corporate PCs is approximately 10 times the purchase price, a significant IT expenditure. Clearly this can be reduced, but doing so requires rethinking how desktops and laptops are managed and supported. In his session in NYC Neocleus VP Bill Corrigan will overview how client-hosted virtualization offers a different approach to controlling the corporate image without compromising security, ultimately reducing TCO of corporate-owned desktops and laptops.

Compliance - The key to virtualization success, contends Embotics CEO Jay Litkey, is the ability to maintain compliance. Everything known about ensuring physical server compliance, such as configuration, access control and security is still relevant and needs to be adjusted to fit in the virtual server space. Litkey will be giving a session in New York looking at compliance control when copying, moving and consolidating servers and data centers.

Desktop Virtualization - Desktop virtualization is moving forward apace and keeping up is a major task. Martin Ingram, VP of Strategy at AppSense, is giving a session in New York looking at the virtualization technologies (hardware, operating system, application and user) and where they can be used (hosted, client and cloud). The session will equip you to evaluate all the technologies, their relevance for your users and the benefits you should expect.

Endpoint Virtualization - The separation of user data from applications can give IT greater control over protecting information assets. In a session devoted to "Leveraging Endpoint Virtualization," Symantec's Sr. VP of Strategy Ken Berryman will be discussing in NYC how on-demand streaming of applications in virtual layers can provide additional benefits by eliminating conflicts between applications.

Flexible I/O - see Self-Virtualizing Devices

Future of the Virtual Enterprise - In a session in New York exploring the advancements in database virtualization techniques that make data in the clouds a viable reality, Xeround VP John Trembley will discuss how most architectures employ a classic hot-standby with replication model which is both woefully inadequate.

Legal Pitfalls of Virtualization - Little thought goes into the legal implications of moving to a virtualized environment. So in his informative session, Attorney at Law David Snead will cover upstream, downstream and corporate liability issues associated with acquiring, using and distributing virtualized and cloud computing products. A similar session was a huge success on the West Coast, at the 4th International Virtualization Conference & Expo. Now Snead bring it to NYC.

Performance & Capacity Management - The dynamic nature of virtualized systems introduces issues that were not present in the physical world. Furthermore the virtualization process breaks many of the resource based methods that performance management was done in the past. Bernd Harzog from APM Experts will be giving a session in New York in which delegates will find out what the criteria are for how to evaluate virtualization performance management products, and how those criteria are applied to popular products on the market today.

Security - Virtualization breeds new security challenges, attack surfaces, and a swath of availability implications. In his session in NYC, IBM virtualization security expert Joshua Corman will examine these new threats and outline best practices and strategies for how to securely adopt virtualization without constraining the innovation and flexibility it offers.

Self-Virtualizing Devices - In a session focused on new methods to achieve improvements with flexible, self-virtualizing PCIe devices, while also reducing costs, the Chief Scientist of Netronome Systems, Derek McAuley, will introduce delegates in New York to the notion of "Flexible I/O for Self-Virtualizing Devices."

Server-Based Security - In his New York session, Bill McGee - Co-Founder & VP of Technology at Third Brigade - will discuss the key security and compliance challenges affecting physical, virtual and cloud computing server environments.McGeee will discus how, though virtualization has poked serious holes into traditional perimeter security controls and cloud computing has effectively evaporated them, firewalls and IDS/IPS are not obsolete.

VDI - The journey to desktop virtualization will take many steps but will desktop environments be able to pass the Virtualization Turing Test? Ami Holder from Tranxition is giving a session in New York in which delegates will be able to learn about best practices for bringing their users’ personalized environments along to a VDI environment so they can achieve the cost benefits of VDI without imposing major disruption and lost productivity on their user base.

Virtual Security - Security is a critical issue that, left unaddressed, will ultimately negate many of the benefits or virtualization. Virtualization security expert Ted Ritter, from Nemertes Research, will be giving an intriguing session in NYC that covers the principal elements of virtualization security, the solutions and vendors in the space and recommendations for organizations that are struggling to secure the benefits of their virtualization efforts.

Virtualization Turing Test - see VDI

VM Densities - Systems management solutions are now available today that can help companies proactively and continually monitor resource utilization to better optimize current virtual infrastructure investments with the goal being to significantly increase VM densities and to lower the cost per VM. The Founder & CEO of VKernel will be giving a session in New York showing delegates how to get the most out of their existing virtualization hardware and software investments – instantly saving money and enabling them to even delay future hardware/capacity purchases, while still growing their environment and meeting performance standards.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
