Keynote Speaker: Steve Duplessie, Founder and Sr. Analyst, ESG
"Virtualization and the Case for Universal Grid Architectures"
The Keynote for the event will be delivered by Steve Duplessie of ESG, an IT market research and advisory firm.
"Traditional computing has been based on monolithic systems clustered together to form larger virtual systems or create a system of high availability. These very architectures are hampering the mobility and dynamism that virtualization enables."

An acclaimed speaker and author, Steve’s insights have been featured in Time Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, The Financial Times, USA Today, China Daily, The Moscow Times, and many other print and online publications.

Our fifth annual deep dive into all things virtual. We bring together speakers from all around the industry to give VERY deep talks about all forms of virtualization. We cover server, desktop, application, presentation, and storage virtualization, "the cloud", and more. This is technical talk, not "marketecture".This is an all-day event with multiple tracks. Understanding that some are new to virtualization, we will have some "hit the ground running" sessions to get you started. So whether you are a newbie or an experienced virtualization guru, we will have content that is to your liking. There is so munch content in fact that, like last year the previous year, and the year before that, we will be recording most sessions and making them available to attendees so you do not miss any of the action. Attend the sessions that you feel you will have the most questions on and get your questions answered. Then after the event, go back and review the sessions you attended and/or hit the other sessions that you missed through our website.
Vendors, speakers and other virtualization geeks will be on hand to make sure you have an opportunity to get answers to the really tough questions. Who knows you just maybe pick up a bit of swag while you are here! Speaking of swag... For those that attended prior years, you probably recall the line of tables that was completely full of great stuff. We had so much swag that every attendee went home with something. Do you think we can do it again? This year we hope it will be much of the same. Take a look at our world class sponsors on the event details site. Not only are they bringing you knowledge, most of them are bringing goodies. Take a look at the goodies table that Microsoft donated last year which included an XBox 360 + Kinect Bundle, games, books, hardware and software. Rumor has it that several of the sponsors are also holding drawings for some really cool enterprise software or gadgets at their sessions or tables. More on that the day of the event.
