12.45 - 13.30 Virtualization with XEN and High Availability – Peter Bats (Team Leader SE XenServer Benelux & Southern Europe) & Sander van Vugt
Sander will wake the audience after siesta & show how Novell and Red Hat already have the solution(s) on an Open Source way into High Availability computing. Those solutions are ‘free-ware’. Why should the system administrator pay Citrix if the same functionality is offered free of charge by Novell and Red Hat?
After Sander Peter Bats will talk about high availability – and we can pull Simon on stage again at the end of this session to give comments.
