A Deep Dive Into the Cost Benefits of KVM and Open Virtualization

A session at LinuxCon North America 2012

  • David Hsu

Friday 31st August, 2012

11:55am to 12:40pm (PST)

KVM and Open Virtualization are at the heart of delivering flexibility, performance and cost savings that free customers from single-source hypervisor solutions that lock you in. This session will dive deep into the license, subscription and support costs that showcase a comparison of KVM versus other industry alternatives. We will look at different operating environment scenarios, volumes, acquisition costs, and 3-year TCO for KVM versus VMware and Microsoft solutions.

This session is targeted at IT leaders, LOB and C-level professionals who have overall responsibility for budget, planning and strategies of their IT departments. The required technical knowledge is low, as this presentation will focus on a cost competitive comparison of hypervisor and management solutions.
