More BOF65 Virtual Datacenter Info

There are 10 sessions at a time Tuesday night during the TechEd 2007 Birds of a Feather evening!  Making your choice can be hard.  Luckily, if your a Systems Admin or Engineer, I think I've got you covered.  Your datacenter; be it a single rack or an entire building... will be affected by virtual machines in the next 5 years.  Do you know what other admins are succeeding (and failing) at in designing their virtual systems?

Topics of discussion at the 7:45pm event include:

  • Why do you use virtual machines
  • Biggest issues you're facing today in using more virtual machines
  • Individual virtual server hardware design
  • VMWare vs. Microsoft, what made you choose
  • Backups and disaster recovery designs using virtual servers
  • Identifying virtual machines on the network
  • Controlling virtual machine growth and resource overutilization
  • Preventing unnecessary "temp" guests from being "always on"

I hope to see you there, and learn from your experiences.
