Security for virtualized datacentres

Live Now At 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern, we have a live one-hour webcast that will be looking at just how you virtualize the critical apps in your business.

As ever, the event is fronted by Reg supremo Tim Phillips. He’ll be joined by Dan Olds from Gabriel Consulting and some system design/tech gurus from VMware and Baker Hull, and IBM's Bob Zuber. The four of them will be exploring all of the key challenges and potential solutions for virtualizing critical apps across your business. This will include:

  1. Larger apps (like transactional or BI databases) that require vertical scalability and can sometimes under-perform in virtualized environments.
  2. Configuring the host systems to handle the absolute peaks. If they can be placed in virtualized environments, then the slack space on these systems can be used for other workloads – providing savings for customers.
  3. Why certain apps present a problem – both because of technical attributes and on the business side (they need to be able to provide predictable performance).

For any of you that are embarking on this journey, or even just thinking about it, we believe this should be just what you need to help with a successful roll-out. Interested? We thought so. You can register for the event right here.

If you can’t make it on the day we’ll be making the entire event available in its recorded format shortly after. If you register today, we’ll email you when that’s available. ®
