Virtualization Workshop

Greetings humans and bots!

I'll be presenting and showcasing a VMware vSphere5 virtualization workshop at Kuwait IT Society in Rouda area on Wednesday at 7 PM.

What is virtualization? What does it have to do with cloud computing? What features does it offer? Is it worth the hype & the investment?
All of that & more plus a live demo of a VMware infrastructure in the session. No cats will be hurt during the demo.

Note: I'll briefly mention the differences between offerings from Citrix, RedHat, Microsoft, VMware & IBM, but most of the focus will be on VMware as it's my area of expertise.

The event is free for all to attend so feel free to invite others.

I'd very much love to know what happened since the last time I've touched VmWare.

Insha'Allah I'll try & come.

On a second thought, will you be streaming online?

do u have any similar events coming up?

MBH said...

I have explained what virtualization is and showed a demo of how to use it & the some of the features.

So there's nothing new to show with regards to VMware.

Are you seeking info about VMware in specific? You can watch YouTube videos if you'd like to see the features in action.

Currently I work for Dell and thought your article on virtualization is quite impressive. I think Virtualization technology is software technology which uses a physical resource such as a server and divides it up into virtual resources called virtual machines (VM's).Virtualization allows users to consolidate physical resources, simplify deployment and administration, and reduce power and cooling requirements.
