Running and Managing Virtual Appliances – Recorded Panel Discusion

A few weeks ago I was part of a panel discussion with GroundWork Open Source and Novell about using and managing virtual appliances. It was a “live podcast” (a recorded webinar) and the recording is now up. You can have a listen here if you’re interested (also from here). It was fun talking about the uses, strategies, and benefits for virtual appliance use.

Here’s the panel participants and summary:


  • Matt Richards, Director, Emerging Technology Marketing, Novell
  • Michael Cote, Analyst, Redmonk
  • Simon Bennett, Sr. Dir. of Product Management, GroundWork Open Source
  • [And David Dennis who MC’ed the event]

Virtual appliances can make life a whole lot easier for IT managers. And with their increased use in production IT and cloud settings, our panel of experts will discuss:

  • Benefits of using virtual appliances vs traditional deployments.
  • Most popular types of virtual appliances.
  • Trends in virtualization adoption.
  • How to monitor and manage virtual appliances.
  • Performance tuning virtual appliances.
  • Migrating virtual appliances to and from the cloud.

There’s also a Q&A at the end.

Disclosure: GroundWork Open Source is a client.
