This year's UNITE Annual Technology Conference with the theme "Invigorate Your Data Center" will be held November 8-11 at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis Hotel, Minneapolis, Minn.
Conference highlights and events include Data Center Transformation sessions. The session "No Do Overs - Get Virtualization Right the First Time" will explore use of a decision framework that can help you make the right choices to meet your IT performance and consolidation goals. In this deep look at server virtualization decision making, you will learn the factors to consider, how to juggle them to meet your enterprise needs and how to significantly reduce your TCO.
A panel discussion entitled "To Virtualize or not to Virtualize? How Your Business Can Benefit from Virtualization" will clarify how virtualization and consolidation are best used, through an interactive discussion with Unisys experts who will talk about the practical application and pitfalls. This session is designed to provide a forum for you to ask general questions such as "What is it and how does it relate to my organization?" to specific "How does virtualizing an OLTP environment differ from an OLAP environment?"
