Virtualization Platforms

The theory behind virtualization has been around for years, but the hardware has just arrived with the power to put this theory into application and use. The when and why to use it will be discussed along with the many implementations. The major implementations will be compared and how to install and configure them will be covered. While this symposium will not make one an expert in the field, it will present material to expose, describe, and explain sufficiently the how, when, and why of virtualization.
