Want to know how the Federal Government uses virtualization?

John Little Profile: Xjlittle

I have often wondered how the really big technology users, like the Federal Government, utilize various technologies such as virtualization.

Now we can all get a first hand look by watching an eSeminar presented by Government Computer News. They are presenting Anil Karmel, a solutions architect in the network and infrastructure engineering division at Los Alamos National Laboratory, in an eSeminar at 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 24.

In the seminar Mr. Karmel will present on the initiatives taken by Los Alamos to address such things as green computing, disaster recovery and security. During the presentation he will discuss

How Los Alamos National Laboratory implemented virtualization to reduce their carbon footprint and consolidate data centers across their campus;

How to leverage server virtualization to cost-effectively supplement your disaster-recovery or business-continuity plan;

How to identify “low hanging fruit” for your agency’s green initiatives while achieving a substantial return on your investment; and

Moving computing from the desktop to the data center to enhance your agency’s security.

Sounds like a good place to learn about how some really smart people implement virtualization. I certainly plan on being there. You can read more about it here.
