What You Need To Survive In A Virtualized World

In this session, we’ll explore the concept of virtualization, discuss the pros and cons of the various configurations (cloud based, locally based, roll your own or contract it out). There will also be discussion on the two key aspects of any successful virtualization project – security and redundancy. We’ll talk about how having two ISPs may not be enough and what you can do to ensure the most bang for the buck, when it comes to making sure the signal is always there when you need it, without breaking the budget.
