Red Hat CTO Keynoting Today on The Future of the Virtual Enterprise

Brian Stevens Leads Virtualization Conference & Expo 2007 Line-Up

The Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Engineering of Red Hat, Brian Stevens, will be giving the Virtualization Keynote entitled "The Future of the Virtual Enterprise" at SYS-CON Events' upcoming Virtualization Conference & Expo 2007 West in San Francisco (November 12-13). An industry luminary, Stevens is credited with having pioneered new technologies that contributed to the rise of Linux as an industry-standard operating platform.

The keynote will take place on November 13.

Stevens has over 20 years of enterprise engineering experience in UNIX and Linux technologies, including work as a developer on the first commercial release of the X Window System. Since joining Red Hat's senior management team in 2001, he has been critical to the company's enterprise operating system, storage, and clustering strategies. He now leads the Emerging Technologies group.

In his keynote, Stevens will consider how the astonishingly rapid rise of virtualization technology has made it a vital component of any Enterprise IT strategy today. "The technology is triggering dramatic changes in product offerings and business practices to support virtualized operational models," he notes. 

"These breakneck speed developments have lead to a plethora of solutions, with the attendant confusion that typically surrounds fast moving technologies."

In his keynote Stevens will outline current trends in virtualization technologies and examine their potential impact on, and benefits for, future Enterprise IT deployments. Topics will include tradeoffs between open source and proprietary solutions, hardware integration efforts, deployment models, and long-term, high-volume serviceability/security considerations.

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
