11:00 – 11:45 a.m.: Hardware Virtualization and Why It Could Change Everything
Once upon a time there was a box. That box had a dedicated function. And a broadcast facility had lots of boxes. But the industry is now poised to, at least potentially leave those days behind as the processing power of those boxes can be separated from specific functions, making them nimble and more useful. Learn how hardware virtualization could change everything from the way products are bought and sold to how they are deployed, maintained, and amortized.
