Greetings and Welcome to Virtualization Group - Boston!

You are receiving this message because you subscribed to the Virtualization Group – Boston meeting notification and Member List.

Our first event is behind us and judging by the evaluations that were handed in, the Virtualization Deep Dive Day was a huge success.  I want to thank all of you who attended and for those that were not able to make it, we hope to have a similar event at least a couple times a year.  Virtualization technology is changing very rapidly.  With many products on the market and the number of players in the space increasing rapidly, I expect there will not be a lack of technical content to share. 

NEXT MEETING:    March 26, 2008
Microsoft Waltham Office
201 Jones Road
Sixth Floor: Room MPR-A
6:00 - 9:00
Directions & Map link

Virtualization Group - Boston will hold our first of many monthly virtualization training and networking meetings. We are going to have a very special guest presenting to us from Seattle Washington.  We will start off the meeting with “What’s in the News” along with Networking and Q & A.  We will jump into the heart of the presentation at or slightly before 7pm.  Though we will typically have two topics per night, we will only have one on this night due to the popularity of the topic, we want to have plenty of time for Q&A.

The Microsoft Hyper-V Product team will be presenting on What’s New in Virtualization on Windows Server 2008 R2

There are many changes in Windows Server 2008 R2.  We will take a close look at the many changes with Microsoft’s next Windows Server OS as it pertains to virtualization.  Don’t miss this opportunity to be one of the first to see what’s coming in the new Hypervisor on Windows Server 2008 R2.  In this session, Bryon Surace will be covering what's new in Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2.  We will be looking at the next generation of Hyper-V feature-by-feature including a Live Migration demo.  There will be time at the end of the presentation for questions and active dialog.


I hope to see you there!

The Virtualization Group–Boston exists in order to encourage an exchange of knowledge about all aspects of virtualization and green technology and cloud computing between IT Professionals. Furthermore, we will foster affiliation with similar virtualization groups located elsewhere to expand the reach of knowledge and training resources.   

We use a very inclusive approach in determining what we consider to fit under the Virtualization umbrella. The list of interest areas that we have defined is expected to change as technology and interests advance. Currently, we have identified the following areas of interest to the group:

  • Server Virtualization
  • Desktop Virtualization (Hosted and Local)
  • Presentation Virtualization
  • Application Virtualization
  • Storage Virtualization
  • Cloud Computing
  • Going Green
