Virtualization Track

Virtualization has evolved from an emerging technology to an essential element of IT in a remarkably short time. Conversations have moved from "what" and "why" to "how," as in, "How can we best operationalize and manage virtualization, how do we contain costs, and how can we extend its benefits further into the infrastructure?" At the same time, virtualization continues to evolve; it’s the lynchpin of hyperconverged infrastructure and private cloud deployments, and emerging technologies such as containers are extending the scalability of virtualized environments. Interop’s Virtualization Track assembles experts and practitioners to help you optimize your existing virtualization deployments and prepare to take advantage of the next phase of its evolution.

How to Integrate DR Services Into a Virtual Environment
Historically, disaster recovery efforts focused on building tomes of run books that are out of date the moment they are created. The advent of virtualization made this process exponentially more difficult; servers are now rapidly brought online, consume shared disk volumes with one another, and can move around the data center. Is it even possible to protect such a constantly shifting and changing environment? This session will focus on how to properly abstract resources for easier DR efforts, build DR services into your VM creation workflows, and create successful DR tests.
