What is a Virtualization Summer Camp? As the name implies it is a place to come and have fun with your peers learning about virtualization technologies. The format of the event will be "Bar Camp" style. If you have ever been to a Bar Camp, you already know they are awesome! If you have never been to one, you definitely do not want to miss this one. Because of the style, it is also vital that you show up on time. Basically, after a short Keynote presentation (Dan Stolts) on virtualization and overview of the format, we all write down what we want to have presentations on. We solicit speakers from the audience to moderate those discussions and we all get educated on what we (the audience) wants to get educated on. We have the capacity for about a dozen different sessions so you will certainly get your money's worth and then some {it's free}. If you miss this event, you will be kicking yourself later. If you make the event, you will be thanking whomever invited you!

RSVP/Registration Links:

Virtualization Group - Boston

Mission Statement

The Virtualization Group–Boston exists in order to encourage an exchange of knowledge about all aspects of virtualization, green technology and cloud computing between IT Professionals. Furthermore, we will foster affiliation with similar virtualization groups located elsewhere to expand the reach of knowledge and training resources.

What We Do

As a local user group, we physically meet monthly, by default on the fourth Thursday (subject to change due to holiday conflicts at the end of the year) of the month. As of June 2009 our meetings will change to the second Tuesday of each month.

The 2-3 hour meeting provides an opportunity for education, knowledge transfer, and training through formal presentations, demonstrations, and discussions. As a local user group, of course networking is an important element and typically we provide some refreshments and door prizes.

Unless there is an objection from a presenter, all presentations will be recorded. These recordings may be downloaded and viewed by our members offline at a later time, and may be shared with other local user groups that are part of the Virtualization User Group Alliance. We plan at some point to make the presentations streamed live over the internet as well.

From time-to-time we also host special events. A great example of this is our inaugural event "Virtualization Deep Dive Day"

What We Cover

We use a very inclusive approach in determining what we consider to fit under the Virtualization umbrella. The list of interest areas that we have defined is expected to change as technology and interests advance. Currently, we have identified the following areas of interest to the group:

Server Virtualization

Desktop Virtualization (Hosted and Local)

Presentation Virtualization

Application Virtualization

Storage Virtualization

Cloud Computing

Going Green

No two people are likely to give you the same definition to any of these terms; see "Areas of Intereest" below for more information on how we define these areas.  See our website for definitions or more informaiton
