The astonishingly rapid rise of virtualization technology has made it a vital component of any Enterprise IT strategy today. And the technology is triggering dramatic changes in product offerings and business practices to support virtualized operational models. These breakneck speed developments have lead to a plethora of solutions, with the attendant confusion that typically surrounds fast moving technologies. In this presentation Mr Stevens will outline current trends in virtualization technologies and examine their potential impact on, and benefits for, future Enterprise IT deployments. Topics will include tradeoffs between open source and proprietary solutions, hardware integration efforts, deployment models, and long-term, high-volume serviceability/security considerations.

Sponsor SOA World / Virtualization Conference & Expo
Service-oriented architectures (SOAs) have evolved over the past few years out of the original vision of loosely coupled web services replacing constrained, stovepiped applications throughout enterprise IT. Every major enterprise technology vendor today has developed its own SOA strategy, supported by innumerable mid-size companies and start-ups offering specific SOA aspects or entire solutions. This explosive growth in SOA technology is in response to a global demand--IDC estimates that spending on SOA services alone will grow from $8.6 billion to more than $33 billion by 2010.
