VMware’s 3rd Annual Federal Technical Conference in DC

Submitted by on June 12, 2010 – 8:31 PM

VMware, Inc. makes virtualization software that runs on Microsoft Windows, Linux and Mac OS X as well as directly on server hardware without requiring an installed operating system call VMware ESX.

The VMware 3rd annual federal technical conference will be in Washington DC on Tuesday, June 15, 2010 between 8:30am – 4:00pm at the Grand Hyatt.  It is the largest federal end-user event where IT and IT Security personnel will learn about the latest VMware solutions and how they support federal enterprises in all areas of government.

Adrian Williams of SecurityOrb.com, which is an Information Security media organization based in the Washington DC Metro area stated, “We have long seen the benefits of VMware’s workstation product in the incident response side of the game.  VMware workstation would allow us to run malware or analysis compromised systems in a safe environment.”

Due to limited space, the event is giving priority to government and systems integrator personnel first.  Key topics of the event will include Desktop Virtualization with VMware View 4.5, Managing & Automating Virtual Enterprise Infrastructure, Security in a Virtual Environment and Building & Managing Cloud-Ready Applications to name a few.

Sponsoring the event are Dell, Swish Data Corp, Force 3 and Quest Software.
