Exploring virtualization, cloud computing and big data infrastructureDate: Aug 30, 2013
IT professionals are in various stages of virtualizing their infrastructures and exploring cloud computing. In this VMworld 2013 video, attendee Greg Ericson talks about his recent virtualization, cloud computing and consolidation project.
