7:00-7:45 Dan Stolts, Microsoft
Title: Advance Virtualization (More Later...)
Dan is back. Be sure to join us to hear Microsoft's Dan Stolts update us on Microsoft's Virtualization initiatives. We are not sure what Dan will be able to talk about, but given that Microsoft blogged quite a bit about Windows 8, including a recent blog showing Hyper-V support in Windows 8, we really have our hopes up for an exciting talk!
In addition to being a Technical Evangelist for IT Professionals at Microsoft, Dan serves as board chairman for VirtG and has his own ASP business on the side.
