> Photos and Write-up of Virtualization & Community Cloud Day <

In 2011, NJEDge hosted Dr. Steven Herrod, VMware’s CTO, for a “town hall” style gathering of member CIOs and datacenter managers for an open dialogue about the future of virtualization and the impact of cloud computing on education institutions. Last year, NJEDge brought VMware-certified instructors on-site at member campuses for in-depth courses server and desktop virtualization technologies. This year, NJEDge is bringing together the best of both worlds.

Please join us on March 28 at the Institute for Advance Study for a free, one-day event featuring strategic keynote speakers, in-depth technical workshops and an executive forum where participates will have the opportunity to discuss their virtualization and cloud computing challenges with these experts, as well as their NJEDge member colleagues.
