Baum's session, "The Future of the Virtual Enterprise: Two Steps Forward Three Steps Back?" will be held Tuesday, August 5, 11:30am-12:30pm.

Baum's discussion will cover what can be done to overcome data management and infrastructure challenges that virtualization raises. "While server virtualization provides an incredible value to the enterprise, it also brings a great deal of complexity to data center management," said Baum. "Being able to index data across all tiers of the IT Infrastructure is essential to effectively managing the virtualized server environment."

"Virtualization is moving into the mainstream, bringing with it a new set of challenges in securely deploying and managing a virtual infrastructure," said Melinda Kendall, vice president and general manager, Next Generation Data Center. "NGDC's virtualization sessions will address these challenges head-on and arm attendees with information on today's virtualization solutions while preparing them for the next generation of technology."

NGDC focuses on new technologies and their impact on the data center, covering mission-critical applications and the technology supporting those applications including storage, servers, networking and communications. Targeted to many types of data center professionals, ranging from IT architects, to system administrators, to application and information administrators, NGDC will help IT Pro's identify the right products and services to add to their end-to-end solutions as they adapt to ever-increasing needs for flexibility, scalability and performance with reduced risk and complexity.
