The Blade.org Technology Symposium takes place June 19, 2008, in New York.

The Blade.org Technology Symposium will feature the world's top IT companies as they plan for the enterprise of 2010 and beyond.

Session: "Dynamic IT: Leveraging Virtualization and Why iSCSI Boot Plays a Dramatic Role" As compute and storage resource requirements grow, enterprise IT users are redefining their server and storage infrastructures. An increasingly prevalent trend is to deploy large numbers of blade servers and modular storage rather than large frame arrays to serve core and departmental application workloads. This session will cover the advantages of iSCSI booting for grid type computing environments for engineering test, core test and development, and production environments.
