The first wave of virtualisation projects are done and dusted, with many applications consolidated and running (reasonably) well. But in a lot of cases the business is still looking for more - faster response times, better availability, quickfire provisioning and on-demand capacity.
Creating a dynamic infrastructure is becoming established as an effective way to achieve this – but while standalone or lightweight apps can be virtualised relatively easily without thinking about the impact on the IT infrastructure, when it comes to the systems and applications that provide the foundation for core business services there is a whole lot more to think about.
It's not about the hypervisor, but much more about the suitability of the infrastructure and how the management, orchestration and licencing come together to allow end-to-end service delivery.
At this webcast we have a team of experts in our studio to talk about how you get into this nirvana.
The Register’s Tim Phillips is your host for the hour. With him are Andrew Buss from our friends at Freeform Dynamics, Andrew Fryer from Microsoft and Alun Rogers from Risual.
Between them, they’ve either done it, analysed what everyone else is doing or they’ve done a bit of both. So consider the onion knowledge at a high and the wisdom free to share. Better still, they’re up for taking your questions.
