Topic:     The Library's Move to Server Virtualization with VMware Infrastructure
Date:      Friday February 20
Time:      9:00 am - 9:45 am
Room:      MC 2009
Speaker:   Chris Gray



The UW Library has been slowly working towards virtualizing most of their servers and now have a VMware infrastructure running 20 servers on four blades of an IBM Blade Center.  Before this, the Library had one near disastrous term where servers were re-built and re-built several times for different reasons.  A way to avoid this in the future was needed.  Chris will give an overview of the Library's experience and the benefits the Library is reaping from server virtualization including better backups and greater performance.
