      Presentation by Simon Crosby:
      "Enterprise Grade Virtualization with Open Source Technologies"
      ======================================================================

      Open Source operating systems like Linux offer the potential to make
      virtualization fast, easy and a commodity by introducing the required
      changes into the OS as part of the standard kernel. Fast virtualization
      with a low overhead, furthermore makes it possible for the first time to
      use it in production environments (rather than just test and development).

      Xen, the leading Open Source virtualization technology has quickly become a
      standard adopted by many leading ISVs to build comprehensive data center
      efficiency and management solutions. This session will provide an overview
      of Xen and discuss best practices for deploying it to achieve enterprise
      grade virtualization.

      Simon Crosby is the VP of Technology Strategy at XenSource and joined
      XenSource from Intel, where he was a Principal Engineer leading strategic
      research in distributed autonomic computing, platform security and trust.
      Previously Simon founded CPlane Inc., a network optimization software
      vendor. At CPlane Simon held the roles of President & CEO, Chairman, CTO
      and Chief Strategy Officer. Prior to CPlane Simon was a tenured faculty
      member at Cambridge University, UK, where he led research network
      performance and control and multimedia operating systems. He is author of
      over 35 research papers and patents.
