Say hello to my first BOF moderation: Are you a TechEd 2007 attendee that keeps hearing how virtualization is here to stay and will affect your server (and desktop) environment in major ways? Are you a leading-edge engineer who already has a virtual datacenter and dealt with the many forms of virtualization and how it affects your physical server designs? If so, come to the Birds of a Feather session Tuesday at 7:45pm in Room N210 B.

I’ll be moderating this discussion which I hope will help dispel some myths, expose some potential hang-ups (see Breakout Session SVR240 Avoiding Virtualization Gotchas the same day at 1pm in S230 E), and educate us all on how we can better plan and prepare (and hopefully jump onboard) for this next wave in server build-out and datacenter design.
