Webcast Today Today at 11:00 our studio has a ream of experts looking at the next steps for the data centre.

According to research that we've done with you, virtualisation is now a central pillar of data centre plans and activities, with most of you having already ticked that particular check-box. So where next? Seemingly, it's heading off into the winter wonderland that is dynamic provisioning and private cloud services.

The Register’s own Tim Phillips will be hosting the event and he’s joined by Andrew Buss from Freeform Dynamics and Lucas Searle from Microsoft. The three of them will take a roadtrip around the following topics and, whenever possible, illustrate the theory with examples of best practice from the real world.

- The evolution of virtualisation

- Consolidation

- Resource pools

- Dynamic infrastructure and private cloud

- Cloud resources

- The challenges of moving beyond consolidation

- Management

- Purchasing

- Architecture

- Operations

- Business drivers for adoption of private cloud
