Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
Penton Technology Group today announced the launch of VMtech Pro, a, new online community offering virtualization support for VMware users. The community aims to support the growing demand for independent content to help IT professionals deploy and sustain VMware technology.
The site is guided by a qualified team of technical experts that will provide strategic direction to help users prepare for the future of virtualization and cloud computing. VMtech Pro aims to fill the content gap by providing the information IT communities are asking for – how-to, real-world solutions on systems, operations, infrastructure, and applications.
To introduce users to the site and jump-start the online community, VMtech Pro will host its first event on November 28, a free online virtualization conference, “Putting VMware to Work for You,” in conjunction with Windows IT Pro. The conference will cover fundamentals of virtualized environments, best practices for architecting, virtualizing applications for critical workloads and infrastructure as a cloud and virtualization infrastructure design.
The conference agenda will feature education sessions with virtualization industry experts, live question and answer sessions, and an interactive exhibit hall complete with prize give-a-ways and a treasure hunt for attendees. The industry line-up includes:
- Christopher Kusek, Global Cloud & Virtualization Lead for EMC, VMware vExpert
- Damian Karlson, EMC Cloud Architect, VMware vExpert
- Brad Maltz, CTO for International Computerware
