Join us for en evening of Pizza and Tech Talk as we explore an important part of virtualization -- where we put our stuff.  It's storage night in the big room!  We have two great presentations on tap looking at two different aspects of storage and the impacts they have in our brave new virtualized world.

7:00-7:50   
The Impact of Logical and Physical Fragmentation in a Virtual Environment by Bob Nolan of PerfectDisk (Raxco)
 
Abstract: Fragmentation is a normal byproduct of the Windows file system, but there is a great deal of misunderstanding with respect to what it really is and its impact. This presentation debunks the myths, describes the differences between logical and physical fragmentation,  and explains the impact both have on real and virtual system performance. We examine the implications of fragmentation in a virtual environment where there is competition for finite resources between guests, and between the guests and the host. The presentation addresses issues with both ESX and Hyper-V virtualization platforms and offers solutions to minimizing the potential for conflicts and maximizing virtual I/O throughput.
8:00-8:45   
Presentation by Bob Boule of StarWind Software
 
Abstract: Bob is back!  We first met Bob at our Deep Dive Day last year, and he came back to help out at our Summer Camp in August.  No doubt, Bob will talk ISCSI and the like.
