The how and why of virtualising core business applications

Regcast The first wave of virtualisation projects are done and dusted, with many applications consolidated and running (reasonably) well. But in a lot of cases the business is still looking for more - faster response times, better availability, quickfire provisioning and on-demand capacity.

Creating a dynamic infrastructure is becoming established as an effective way to achieve this – and standalone or lightweight apps can be virtualised relatively easily without thinking about the impact on the IT infrastructure. But there is a lot more to think about when it comes to the systems and applications that provide the foundation for core business services.

It's not about the hypervisor, but much more about the suitability of the infrastructure and how the management, orchestration and licencing come together to allow end-to-end service delivery.

On the 12th of July at 15:00BST we have a team of experts in our studio to talk about how you get into this nirvana.

The Register’s Tim Phillips is your host for the hour. With him are Andrew Buss from our friends at Freeform Dynamics, Andrew Fryer from Microsoft and Alun Rogers from Risual.

Between them, they’ve either done it, analysed what everyone else is doing or they’ve done a bit of both. Better still, they’re up for taking your questions.
