WITI South Florida Regional Network
Virtualization: What, Where, When and Why

Tuesday, April 15, 2014
6:00 pm

So what is virtualization? Quite simply, it is a technology that explodes the traditional one-to-one relationship between computer hardware and the software that runs it. Virtualization software allows you to create two or more complete computing environments on a single piece of hardware. The proliferation of systems with multi-core microprocessors has made virtualization possible across a wide range of business applications. And reduced cost can be a big benefit: Instead of buying more than one server for a growing small business, you can "virtualize." In fact, many things can be virtualized beyond servers: desktop systems, storage devices and even networks.

Come join WITI for an informative presentation on Virtualization and it's many applications. In this session you will learn about:

- What is Virtualization - server & storage
- The Benefits of Virtualization
- The Relationship between Virtualization, Big Data and Cloud Computing
