KVM is gaining market awareness and adoption amongst clients as the Open Alternative to costly hypervisor solutions. Virtualization is a foundational component of the Cloud, and decisions made at the hypervisor layer have significant ramifications in terms of cost and flexibility as IT departments journey towards the Cloud. Supported by industry heavyweights such as IBM, HP, and Red Hat, KVM and Open Virtualization is at the heart of delivering flexibility, performance and cost savings that free customers from single-source hypervisor solutions that lock you in.
This session is targeted at IT leaders, LOB and C-level professionals who have overall responsibility for budget, planning and strategies of their IT departments. The required technical knowledge is low, as this presentation will focus on the business benefits of KVM and strategic planning as related to Cloud.
