Interesting Uses Of Virtualization

Last week, I presented two sessions at InfoWorld's Virtualization Executive Forum 2006. One was a panel on best practices for virtual test-lab automation, with representatives from VMware/Akimbi and Surgient.

The other was a solo presentation on interesting uses of virtualization--that is, compelling use cases outside of server consolidation. While hardware consolidation is still the leading driver for adoption of virtualization by IT, it will be overtaken by a slew of very interesing applications that are as yet little known. To see what I mean, have a look at the slides from my presentation. I have kept the deck short and to the point.
