DMTF at Synergy 2009

Speaking Session, Synergy Virtualization Congress

Simplifying Virtualization Management Using New Industry Standards
Winston Bumpus, DMTF President
Thursday, May 7, 2009 - 10:00am

Abstract:  As organizations look to maximize investments in the heterogeneous data center, the issue of vendor interoperability comes to the fore. Capitalizing on multi-vendor industry standards is at the heart of any data center optimization effort. This session will address the challenges and opportunities in a multi-vendor environment, and explain how the DMTF's Virtualization Management Initiative (VMAN) and standards including the Open Virtualization Format (OVF) and the Virtualization Management Profiles will form the foundation of an interoperable end-to-end management strategy in today's distributed infrastructures.
