On Demand Virtualisation might be something everyone likes to talk about in general terms, but what of the specifics of migrating workloads?

In this On Demand Webcast we tackle just that issue. We’ve put Jon Collins of Freeform Dynamics in a room with Brett Johnson, a Microsoft unified comms technical specialist, and Andrew Fryer, a Microsoft evangelist. Together they'll run through some real-world experiences on virtualised workloads.

The three of them talk about the benefits of virtualizing workloads, including freeing up resources, reduction of hardware silos and centralisation of control.

They also get into Virtualisation and databases, and the specific considerations needed when tackling such projects. Additionally, they discuss virtualisation and collaboration tools, considering everything from design to data protection.

The half-hour broadcast is concluded with some hot tips from the three of them. If you’re getting specific about virtualising your workloads, check this out. ®
