RMWTUG Announces Its Virtualization Conference in Denver, Colorado

ARVADA, CO–(EMWNews – July 28, 2008) – The Rocky

Mountain Windows Technology User Group (RMWTUG) will hold its Virtualization

mini-conference on the afternoon of September 29, 2008 in Denver, Colorado.

CIOs, CTOs, managers, developers and system and network administrators are

invited to spend a half-day with the RMWTUG. Expected attendance is 400 – 500


“With the recent release of Microsoft’s Hyper-V technology, a new major

player has entered the competitive landscape and a great number of

questions about server virtualization have arisen in the minds of many IT

professionals,” said Dennis Martin, RMWTUG President. “Many want to compare

the two technologies side-by-side, and this mini-conference is the perfect

place to do this.”

Because this event is run by the non-profit RMWTUG, the general point of view of the

presentations will be neutral with respect to the virtualization

technologies. The focus of this event is to show how server virtualization

configuration, usage and management tasks are performed on these differing

technologies. Features and functions that are common to these technologies

will be demonstrated, and features and functions that are unique to one or

the other will also be demonstrated. Network and storage management

functions will also be demonstrated.

Technologies at this Conference

The main presentations will be performed with real servers, networking and

storage infrastructure on the stage. On the stage will be four identical,

large, name-brand servers along with enterprise-class networking and

storage infrastructure including iSCSI and Fibre Channel storage. Two of

the servers will be running VMware ESX and two will be running Microsoft

Hyper-V. The Gold and Silver sponsors have the opportunity to participate

in the on-stage demonstration with their hardware and software.

Some of the technology that will be used in the on-stage demonstrations

includes 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networking, 4- and 8-Gigabit Fibre

Channel storage, and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) storage. This event

may be the first public demonstration for some of this technology.


This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required to

insure adequate food, beverage and seating. Register at: Additional event
