Real-world Virtualization
Speaker: Matt Yotko, Director of Technology Infrastructure, IAC
Description: Faster service delivery, higher asset productivity, aff ordable data protection, increased fl exibility, and dramatically lower cost at the same time? Learn how director of technology Matt Yotko from Barry Diller's IAC has made this happen by implementing a utility computing architecture based on a highly virtualized server and storage implementation for mission-critical database, messaging, and other applications. See how virtualized storage can lead the way to high and consistent service levels and maximum cost-effective consolidation and disaster recovery protection of virtualized servers.

Clustering for Performance
Speaker: Greg Schulz, Founder, Storage IO
Description: This session looks at clustered storage as a technique to scale both I/Os to meet transaction processing and bandwidth for video and content rich media applications along with other cluster storage scaling benefits for both SAN (Fibre Channel, iSCSI) and NAS including InfiniBand environments.

The Benefits of Networked Storage with Virtual Servers (VMware)
Speaker: Mark Peters, Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group
Description: A recent ESG research study of more than 500 respondents showed that 57% are using virtual server technology in production environments. Server virtualization users are deploying virtual machines across a variety of storage solutions. There are inherent benefits, inclusive of increased availability, efficient data protection and improved utilization if virtualized servers are deployed with networked storage.
