Virtualization Conference & Expo to Take Place June 25-27, in New York City

The First Major Virtualization Event in the World Will Offer Three Days of Unmatched Content Delivered by Top Virtualization Gurus

WOODCLIFF LAKE, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 20, 2007 -- SYS-CON Events (www.sys-con.com) announced today that the first international Virtualization Conference & Expo (www.virtualizationconference.com) will take place on June 25-27, 2007, at the historic Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. The event is expected to attract over 1,000 developers, architects, IT managers, and software professionals of every stripe who will be converging in New York City to attend the first comprehensive meeting on Virtualization.

Virtualization Conference & Expo is sponsored by SYS-CON's "Virtualization Journal" (www.virtualization.sys-con.com).

Virtualization Conference & Expo is the leading event covering the booming market of Virtualization for the enterprise, with experts on server, storage, application and desktop technologies. The conference will contain multiple sessions on how to improve application efficiency and lower costs by leveraging network and computing resources. Combined with SOA, Virtualization will help you take your applications and platforms to the next level.

At the first international Virtualization Conference & Expo, you will hear from industry experts already out in the field on how to use Virtualization to increase uptime; accelerate storage and application speed; lower costs, improve utilization; and make your infrastructure strong, flexible and secure.

"Today, Virtualization is in the forefront -- helping businesses with scalability, security and management of their global IT infrastructure," said Miles Silverman, vice president of sales and marketing at SYS-CON Media. "The first annual Virtualization Conference & Expo, together with the Virtualization Journal, endeavors to provide IT professionals with the knowledge and skills required to derive maximum benefits from this efficient approach to computing."

Reaching Beyond Physical IT: Explore the Power of Virtualization in Enterprise Computing

As today's CIOs and IT managers rise to the challenge of using their enterprise computing infrastructure as cost-effectively as possible while remaining responsive in supporting new business initiatives and flexible in adapting to organizational changes, Virtualization has become more and more important.

A fundamental technological innovation that allows skilled IT managers to deploy creative solutions to such business challenges, Virtualization is a methodology whose time has come. The fast-emerging age of Grid Computing is enabling the virtualization of distributed computing, of IT resources such as storage, bandwidth, and CPU cycles. But Virtualization can also apply to a range of system layers, including hardware-level virtualization, operating system level virtualization, and high-level language virtual machines.

In short, Virtualization is fast becoming a key requirement for every server in the data center, enabling workloads such as server consolidation, efficient software development and testing, resource management for dynamic data centers, application re-hosting and compatibility, and high-availability partitions.

Virtualization Conference & Expo will be the leading event covering the booming market of Virtualization for the enterprise.

Topics will include:

--  Hosted Virtualization
--  Para-virtualization
--  Virtualization Hardware Support
--  Hardware-level Virtualization
--  Storage Virtualization
--  Virtualization for Server Consolidation and Containment
--  Desktop Virtualization
--  Windows Virtualization
--  Utility Computing
    
The "Call for Papers" is now open at the conference Website. www.virtualizationconference.com
