Description: This year, for the first time, the number of virtual machines is on track to exceed the number of physical machines shipped. The reasons are clear -- data center cost reduction and greater agility. But, like any new, strategic technology, virtualization also transforms the way IT goes about its day-to-day business. Join Bob Melk, Group Publisher, IDG Enterprise, Dee Waddell, CIO of Amtrak, Alicia Barco, VP of IT at Paradigm Corporation, Bill Miller , CIO of El Paso County -- plus Robin Purohit, VP and GM of Software Products from HP Software for alternative thinking on virtualization.
