The state of virtualization

Virtualization remains a force in the datacenter for enterprises of all sizes and types. While the majority of enterprises have established virtualization architectures in their datacenter, only about 55% of applications worldwide have been virtualized. 

In this 3-part webinar series, we'll review the state of virtualization based on a recent worldwide survey by Red Hat. Then, we'll look at a use case often overlooked in virtualization—that of the virtualized high-speed workstation. Finally, we'll review virtualization technologies and solutions from Red Hat.

Virtualization and high-speed workstations: A case study in review

Often we think of virtualization as server virtualization—it's the most common use case we run into. However, there is a strong market for virtualization and high-speed workstations. 

In this webinar, we'll delve into this lesser known use case from a large enterprise in the oil and gas industry. We'll look at their requirements, results, and experiences virtualizing their high-speed workstations.
