Virtual Computer to Present at SYS-CON's Virtualization Conference Europe 2009

Richard Cassidy will be Making the Case for Desktop Virtualization

Richard Cassidy, Manager of Global Systems Engineering at Virtual Computer, will be presenting at SYS-CON's 6th International Virtualization Conference & Expo in Prague this coming May 18-19, 2009.

Session Description: While server virtualization appears to have gone mainstream, the case for desktop virtualization is often less clear. However, the potential opportunity is significant with the number of client devices far exceeding the number of servers. Primary reasons why organizations will embrace desktop virtualization include: improved desktop security, simplified management and reduced management costs. This session will present a new approach to desktop virtualization where desktops and applications are fully encapsulated in a virtual workspace environment and delivered dynamically from a private or a public computing cloud, to be run locally, independent of each other directly on bare-metal PC hardware. It will also explore how this approach delivers enhanced security and centralized management, while preserving the user experience and the flexibility of local PC capabilities.

6th International Virtualization Conference & Expo Europe - Prague, Czech Republic - May 18-19, 2009
Virtualization is reorganizing the IT industry. It underpins cloud computing by making it possible to separate the software from the hardware.Overall, the virtualization market has grown from approximately $560 million in 2005 to a forecasted $2.7 billion in 2009, according to IDC. According to Gartner, virtualization will be the highest-impact IT trend changing infrastructure and operations through 2012.

While data center virtualization is still the #1 market segment, it's starting to get competition from application virtualization, storage virtualization, I/O virtualization and virtualization for end users - so called endpoint virtualization. In fact, in almost any credible survey of Top Technology Trends for 2009, Virtualization and Cloud Computing top the list. In Gartner's Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2009, it ranked #1, up from #5 last year.

Top Keynotes, Top Technical & Business Sessions, Top Delegates
This event will feature technical sessions from leading industry players representative of the main layers of the Cloud ecosystem - the infrastructure players, the platform providers, and those offering applications. The high-energy event is a must-attend for senior technologists including CIOs, CTOs, directors of infrastructure, VPs of technology, IT directors and managers, network and storage managers, network engineers, enterprise architects, and communications and networking specialists.
