Announcing Virtualize, JPR's Remote Graphics and Virtualization Conference
TIBURON, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
In response to a recent survey of end users and managers regarding their
interest and knowledge of remote graphics, remote workstations and
virtualized computing, Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the industry's
research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia, has announced
Virtualize, the company's first conference on the subject of Remote
Graphics and Virtualization (RG&V) as it applies to businesses both
large and small.
"Based on the results of our survey, there is clearly a lot of confusion
over this nascent category, which is not too unusual given its relative
newness," said Dr. Jon Peddie, president of JPR. "However, interest in
the ability to collaborate and work anywhere at any time on any machine
with a full database is enormous."
The Virtualize Conference, October 30 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco
Airport, is designed to give real-world guidance to industry
professionals who are looking for ways to achieve more efficiency,
productivity and resource management in their organizations through the
use of virtualization technologies. The conference will feature talks
and panel discussions from people who are making virtualization work in
their organizations including large engineering operations such as
Boeing (News - Alert) and GE, entertainment companies such as Dreamworks and ILM
working with huge data sets, and in small and medium businesses who want
to make better use of their resources. .Security is also a critical
interest for all of these companies.
Leveraging Virtualization for Any Size Business
Virtualization is becoming commonplace in the enterprise, as large
companies optimize and manage their resources but thereare more
benefits to be realized from using Remote Graphics and Virtualization
for high-end computing. Professionals in a wide range of companies can
now take advantage of virtualization techniques for specialized tasks
such as engineering, design, analysis, rendering.
Additionally, IT professionals would like to extend their resources to
enable their users to access more resources when needed. But, in many
cases, there's a great deal of uncertainty about how best to take
advantage of new technology. As JPR's survey has indicated people are
not sure what they can do, and they don't know where to start.
JPR's Conference will provide an overview of virtualization options,
hands-on explanations from experienced users and detailed descriptions
of the products and configurations available for different work flows.
In addition the conference will also take a look down the road to
describe what's happening in the future, and how best to evaluate new
technology and prepare for implementation.
The Virtualize Conference will be beneficial for both principals who are
setting the strategic direction for their organization as well as for
early adopters responsible for implementation. Early bird registration
is open now through September 5, 2014 for $199 at https://www.regonline.com/Builder/site/tab1.aspx?EventID=1581461.
