Reg readers get physical with virtual machines

Tap your brains

Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Panic no doubt set in for many of you when all of our Virtualization e-Symposium ads disappeared from the site. You'd grown accustomed to the twinkling plugs for our VMware and Intel sponsored show.

Well, everyone can rest easy now that the full e-Symposium has been archived.

That's right. Those of you looking to expand your virtualization knowledge can grab the entire four-hour session or consume it in bite size chunks on-demand.

You get our analyst chums at Freeform Dynamics diving deep into Register reader survey information. They reveal where the big and little vendors have mucked up and where they've served end users well. They also reveal ways to deal with licensing software in a virtualized world. Can you tame a virtualized Larry Ellison? Yes, you can - with our help.

In addition, the e-Symposium has a pair of all-stars from VMware presenting on systems management across virtualized servers and desktop virtualization.

But that's not all!

Capping things off, all of our presenters participate in a roundtable - the juiciest part of the show, we reckon - where the Freeform guys, Reg editor Ashlee Vance and the VMware champs spar.

Thanks to a constant stream of questions from our live participants, the e-Symposium proved a lively and fruitful affair. We did our best to make sure that reader concerns were top of mind throughout the program and tried with relentless zeal to keep marketing off the agenda.

In all honesty, the folks out there interested in virtualization technology will get their ears' worth by checking out the program. ®
