Register now to hear HP experts on latest support strategies for unique challenges of virtualized and cloud environments

Summary:While the technology to support and fix these virtualized environments is essential, the people, skills and knowledge to manage these systems are perhaps the most decisive elements.

Advanced and pervasive virtualization and cloud computing trends are driving the need for a better, holistic approach to IT support and remediation. Keeping virtualized servers that support mission-critical applications and databases at top levels of performance 24 x 7 is a much different problem than for maintaining physical servers in traditional configurations.

That's why HP has made the service and support of global virtualization market leader VMware implementations a top priority. And while the technology to support and fix these virtualized environments is essential, the people, skills and knowledge to manage these systems are perhaps the most decisive elements of ongoing performance success. Live discussion To find out more, I'll be moderating a live deep-dive discussion on Dec. 7, with a group of HP experts to explore how to make the most of the available people, technology and processes to provide an insurance policy against systems failure. [Disclosure: HP and VMware are both sponsors of BriefingsDirect podcasts.]

The stakes have never been higher for keeping applications and business up and running.
