BrightTALK Hosts Virtualization Simplicity at Scale Summit

Interact With Storage and Data Center Experts Live on BrightTALK

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2010) -  

WHAT: Virtualization Simplicity at Scale Summit hosted by BrightTALK™

Virtualization's promise to cut costs, increase business agility, and reduce carbon footprints is often threatened when organizations begin to deploy a large number of VMs. In other words, going from 10 VMs to 100s of VMs may turn virtualization's money-saving benefits into a money-losing proposition unless achieving scale with virtualization is done properly. This summit will present the latest innovations and best practices for achieving agility, simplicity, and business value through server virtualization environments. Presenters will cover the benefits of network-attached storage (NAS), storage management solutions, and guidelines for efficiency and ROI.

Join experts from Isilon, DMTF, Enterprise Strategy Group and more to learn the latest innovations and best practices for achieving agility, simplicity, and business value in this free, interactive online event: Virtualization Simplicity at Scale Summit.

WHEN: Thursday, March 25, 2010, from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. PDT (The webcasts will also be immediately recorded and viewable on-demand at BrightTALK)
