Virtualization Field Day

Virtualization Field Day (VFD) focuses on server and desktop virtualization and management technologies. VFD brings together the best independent thought leaders in virtualization to discuss pressing issues and technology advancements with key companies in the space.

We have produced Virtualization Field Day events since 2010, and virtualization has been a key topic for the original Tech Field Day series since the beginning.

We also produce in-person and online Roundtable events to present key virtualization technologies to a broader audience. This includes our participation in VMworld starting in 2010 and continuing through 2012.

If you would like to get involved with Virtualization Field Day, either as a delegate or sponsoring presenter, please contact us! We have pages for sponsors and delegates, including forms to use to get in touch.

Topics Covered

Virtualization Field Day covers many diverse topics of interest to our delegates and their audience. In the past, companies have discussed the following areas:

  • Server hypervisors and management products
  • Storage, data protection and replication solutions
  • Alternative hypervisors, including desktop, personal, and mobile
