This is a video of a breakout session from BriForum 2008, presented by Brian Madden, Ron Oglesby, Jason Davidson, and Brian Duckering.
Session Description: Virtualization takes on many forms, from application virtualization to OS virtualization to hardware virtualization. As you look at the industry trends, everyone is building a portfolio that encompasses many of these options. Do hardware features have a role amongst these solutions? Would application or OS virtualization operate better if there were features on the computer for it? Is there a clear winner in this space which will deliver a compute model which can address enterprise needs, or are we trending towards a hodgepodge of solutions? Are new devices and hardware going to provide new usage models when paired with virtualization?
In this panel discussion, we’ll talk about the role hardware plays in virtualization, or whether it’s all just purely a software solution.
