Another interesting session should be "Hypervisor Competitive Differences: What the Vendors Aren't Telling You". It will be led by Richard Jones, a Service Director of Data Center Strategies in Burton Group. In this session he will talk about the differences between the leading hypervisors, and will focus on the "under-the-hood features that don't make it onto vendor data sheets".
Those who decide to attend to the session should expect to see the differences that exist with all major virtualization hypervisor vendors such as those of VMware, Microsoft, Citrix, Virtual Iron, Sun, Novell, and Red Hat. Users will also get a list of pointed questions to ask prospective hypervisor vendors.
