Virtualization is one of the hottest areas in IT today. Understanding how to leverage virtualization in database and middleware infrastructures is becoming a fundamental skill for DBAs, Application Server Administrators and System Administrators. Along with the virtualization events we are hoping to put together an additional expert panel or birds of a feather to see how we can optimize virtualization activities in the user community. Below are key virtualization events during the week at at the Collaborate 2010 conference.
