infrastructure in the marketplace? Without that, isn't virtualization potentially hazardous,
rather than beneficial?
At the Virtualization Conference & Expo 2007 West, power panelists Gordon Jackson, David Christian, Ken Jisser, and Ben Rudolph, joined by moderator Jeremy Geelan, engaged in a lively discussion about the many different layers of virtualization, such as server virtualization, and how virtualization can help your business to succeed. For those new to virtualization, the power panel also covered the most basic question - 'What is virtualization?'
