IDC forecasts that the software appliance market will grow to $1.2 billion by 2012. Skip Paul, appliance architect at Novell, will explain why appliances are growing in such popularity at next week’s VMworld 2010, Aug. 30-Sept 2, 2010, in San Francisco.
Join Skip on Monday, August 30th from 12:00-1:00 p.m. PT to learn why appliances are fast becoming the preferred choice when it comes to deploying and integrating software applications. His session, “Virtual Appliances: Simplifying Application Deployment and Accelerating Your Journey to the Cloud,” will also cover how the strategic partnership between Novell and VMware is delivering innovative appliance versions of VMware products running on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, and how they can help enterprises move applications to the cloud.
Skip will demonstrate SUSE Studio, used by ISVs and enterprises to build appliances in minutes for on-premise and cloud environments.
