Trends in Server Virtualization: A conversation with IDC
Date: Wednesday, September 27 at 11am PT / 2pm ET
New IT workloads are racing towards cloud and cloud-native implementations; however, most IT workloads are hosted in virtual machines (VMs) and will continue to be. Significant changes to the virtualization landscape are causing IT decision makers, virtualization administrators and infrastructure architects to evaluate their choice of vendors for server virtualization. IT teams have several options from maintaining status quo, replatforming, or rebuilding their current workloads.
Join speakers, Gary Chen and Peter Lauterbach, for a discussion on industry trends and where and how technologies like Red Hat® OpenShift® Virtualization can help navigate a path forward.
In this webinar, we’ll cover:
- An assessment of the current virtualization software market
- Considerations when evaluating a workload infrastructure modernization strategy moving forward
- Actions to take to minimize risk and maximize innovation with your traditional workloads
