Sun's VP of xVM to Speak at SYS-CON's 4th International Virtualization Conference & Expo, Nov. 19-21, in Silicon Valley

Steve Wilson will give breakout session on Virtualization from Desktop to Datacenter

In 45 jam-packed minutes that will include case studies and live technology demonstrations, the VP of xVM at Sun, Steve Wilson, will at this week's 4th International Virtualization Conference & Expo in San Jose, CA, be giving a session entitled "Virtualization from Desktop to Datacenter" - in which he will examine how an enterprise can combine the use of layer-2 "desktop" hypervisor technology, layer-1 dedicated server virtualization software and next-generation management software to rapidly speed the rate at which they can develop and deploy new software within their enterprise.



"With software developers able to easily create and encapsulate software withing virtual machine containers, and then speed this through staging and deployment," says Wilson, "enterprises benefit from radical cost reduction and increased time to market."

Wilson's firm belief is that virtualization will also radically simplify complex IT tasks, such as patching and compliance reporting. He is is the Vice President of xVM within the Software group at Sun Microsystems where his responsibilities include leadership of Server Virtualization, Systems Management and Connected Services.
