  • I guess most people have their own ideas an thoughts about virtualization, but what do you think might be the biggest misconceptions about virtualization?
  • Rushing into virtualization deployments. Why does this happen, how can it be prevented, and what are the consequences?
  • Why are people still only using agents for backups and what problems does this create?
  • I know both tony and James are using vCenter. What are people missing out on if they are not fully leveraging vCenter?
  • So this topic I’m going to have James cover because tony, I believe you are using all Vmware and no Citrix. So James please go ahead.
