Compellent CTO and Customers Discuss Virtualization During CIO Virtual Trade Show

On June 16th, Compellent will be participating in an exciting virtual trade show hosted by CIO discussing the benefits of virtualization and how it’s helped organizations cut costs, optimize resources and enable disaster recovery and business continuity.

During the event Compellent CTO, Larry Aszmann, Burton Group analyst, Chris Wolf, and Compellent customers Tom Gonzales (Credit Union of Colorado) and Ping Ooi (Ares Management) will take part in a “Virtualization at Work” panel discussion. They will address ways virtualization can answer pressing budget questions, the current and future state of virtualization and cloud computing, industry trends and personal experiences with the technology.

The event will air live on Tuesday, June 16th, and be available on demand from June 17 – September 17, 2009. All attendees who visit the event on June 16, 2009 may win an Apple® – iPod touch® 8GB MP3 Player compliments of CIO.

Session Panelists Information:

  • Vendor: Larry Aszmann, CTO, Compellent – Larry serves as the pacesetter for the panel discussion, speaking first on almost every topic and dictating the direction and tone of the panel.
  • End User 1: Tom Gonzales, Credit Union of Colorado – Tom serves as the primary back-up for Larry, offering an end-user example to many of the points Larry initiates. Like usual, Tom does an excellent job discussing CUoC, while promoting Compellent.
  • End User 2: Ping Ooi, Ares Management – Ping has a limited role throughout the first half of the discussion, but begins to speak more effectively towards the end. He seems to miss a few opportunities to discuss Compellent.
  • Analyst: Chris Wolf, Burton Group – Chris seems to serve as the impartial participant, providing a general industry perspective. He often speaks for long periods of time without interruption.

CIO’s Virtualization Virtual Conference will provide a drill down into the trends shaping how CIOs are leveraging virtualization. It’ll look at wringing out the maximum cost savings; hidden benefits like green IT and disaster recovery; how virtualization is poised to push cloud computing past the tipping point; best practices for managing your virtual environment; Open Source Virtualization: Ready for Prime Time?; and virtualization and security: the critical issues confronting CIOs.
