Session:      "Optimizing Data Protection in Virtual Environments with
              Deduplication and WAN Acceleration (panel discussion)"

              Date/Time/Location: Tuesday, September 11th, 5:00pm-6:00pm
              PT, Esplanade 303

              Data Domain Panelist: Devin Hamilton, Senior Technology
              Specialist

              Session Description: Like physical systems, virtual machines
              contain large quantities of important data that needs to be
              protected to ensure regulatory compliance, recoverability and
              disaster recovery. As organizations expand their use of
              virtualization, the amount of important data in virtual
              machines also grows, creating challenges in efficiently
              storing, accessing and transferring that data. Deduplication
              and WAN acceleration are two technologies that customers are
              using to optimize their storage and bandwidth usage,
              particularly for data protection. In this session, you'll
              hear from leading vendors about their products for
              deduplication and WAN acceleration and how they are being
              used by VMware customers to address key challenges in
              efficient data protection.
