OPENING KEYNOTER: Dr Werner Vogels, VP & CTO, Amazon.com
DAY 2 KEYNOTER: Dr Kristof Kloeckner, Cloud Computing CTO, IBM
DAY 3 KEYNOTER: David Douglas, Sr. VP of Cloud Computing, Sun Microsystems

Virtualization is reorganizing the IT industry. It underpins cloud computing by making it possible to separate the software from the hardware - Amazon Web Services is the largest cloud-based virtualization effort...and AWS is literally changing the world of IT as we knew it. Overall, the virtualization market has grown from approximately $560 million in 2005 to a forecasted $2.7 billion in 2009, according to IDC. According to Gartner, virtualization will be the highest-impact IT trend changing infrastructure and operations through 2012.

While data center virtualization is still the #1 market segment, it’s starting to get competition from application virtualization, storage virtualization, I/O virtualization and virtualization for end users - so called endpoint virtualization. In fact, in almost any credible survey of Top Technology Trends for 2009, Virtualization and Cloud computing top the list. In Gartner's Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2009, it ranked #1, up from #5 last year.

SYS-CON's 5th International Virtualization Conference & Expo will be looking at every flavor of virtualization. Top speakers drawn from the very highest echelons of the industry will be presenting in breakout and general sessions, including speakers from IBM, Sun, EMC, CA, VKernel, AppSense, Sybase, VIRTERA, Embotics, Symantec, Neocleus, Certeon and many, many more.

There are sessions on aspects ranging far beyond server virtualization to virtualization management tools and virtualized desktop infrastructure, para-virtualization, security and compliance issues, Green IT, cloud and datacenter filesystems, distributed I/O resource management, database management in virtualized environments, secure mobile device virtualization, and resource management and load balancing issues for very large clusters of up to 100,000 nodes.

Make certain your company is leveraging the performance, reliability and cost benefits of enterprise-class virtualization: please join us at SYS-CON's 5th International Virtualization Conference & Expo in New York City!

Ahead in the Cloud - The Power of Infrastructure as a Service
by Dr. Werner Vogels

Building the right infrastructure that can scale up or down at a moment's notice can be a complicated and expensive task, but it's essential in today's business landscape. This applies to an enterprise trying to cut-costs, a young business unexpectedly saturated with customer demand, or a start-up looking to launch.

There are many challenges when building a reliable, flexible architecture that can manage unpredictable behaviors of today's internet business. This presentation will review some of the lessons learned from building one of the world's largest distributed systems: Amazon.com.

Dr. Werner Vogels is Vice President & Chief Technology Officer at Amazon.com where he is responsible for driving the company's technology vision.

New York Keynote: Tuesday, March 31 - 7:30-8:15AM
Cloud Computing and the Enterprise
by Kristof Kloeckner

This presentation will draw on IBM’s experience working with customers and operating 13 cloud centers world wide to review the conditions under which cloud computing can deliver its promise of flexibility and cost savings in the delivery of IT services to the enterprise.

We will discuss the importance of dynamic infrastructures and service management for both public and private clouds, cloud service life cycles and integration between public clouds and enterprise services. We will also talk about standards required for interoperability between clouds and application scenarios that demonstrate the use of cloud computing in an enterprise context for a smarter planet.

Dr Kristof Kloeckner, CTO, Enterprise Initiatives and VP, Cloud Computing Platforms at IBM is based in Somers, New York

New York Keynote: Wednesday, April 1 - 8:30-9:15AM
