Reaching Beyond Physical IT: Explore the Power of Virtualization in Enterprise Computing

As today's CIOs and IT managers rise to the challenge of using their enterprise computing infrastructure as cost-effectively as possible while remaining responsive in supporting new business initiatives and flexible in adapting to organizational changes, Virtualization has become more and more important. A fundamental technological innovation that allows skilled IT managers to deploy creative solutions to such business challenges, Virtualization is a methodology whose time has come. The fast-emerging age of Grid Computing is enabling the virtualization of distributed computing, of IT resources such as storage, bandwidth, and CPU cycles. But Virtualization can also apply to a range of system layers, including hardware-level virtualization, operating system level virtualization, and high-level language virtual machines.

In short, Virtualization is fast becoming a key requirement for every server in the data center, enabling workloads such as server consolidation, efficient software development and testing, resource management for dynamic data centers, application re-hosting and compatibility, and high-availability partitions.

SOA World Conference & Expo's Virtualization Forum will be the leading event covering the booming market of Virtualization for the enterprise.

Services Oriented Infrastructure in a Web2.0, Virtualized World
Keynote: Tuesday, June 26th - 7:30 AM - 8:15 AM

The confluence of several mature architectural paradigms with new user-centric paradigms will drive the next generation of IT. Next generation IT will be based on the combination of model-driven architecture and service-oriented architecture applied to applications, information delivery, and IT resources alike. The agility gained in IT infrastructure coupled with highly configurable, lightweight, 'last mile' visualization technologies will dramatically increase the relevance and reactivity of IT to the business. By applying these architectures, technologies and open standards to the problems faced by IT we can focus on qualities of service delivery of IT in support of business value. At the end of this keynote presentation by the CTO of EMC, you will
Understand the impact of service orientation on IT infrastructure
Understand the relevant architectures, technologies and standards
Discover the approaches for utilization of these tools and their importance to the business
