CA's Dan Juengst to Present at SYS-CON's Virtualization Conference

Juengst will present Optimizing Web Application Performance in a Virtualized Environment

Dan Juengst, Vice President of Technical Sales for CA's Application Performance Management business unit, will deliver the presentation, Optimizing Web Application Performance in a Virtualized Environment, at SYS-CON's 5th International Virtualization Conference & Expo in New York City this coming March 30-April 1, 2009.

For all the simplicity that virtualization drives in the data center around hardware, it also drives complexity into production/run-time environments, introducing new application-performance and availability-management challenges. The combination of Web-based applications running in a virtualized environment equals added support challenges simply because there are more places for the application and its associated transactions to fail. It also makes it harder to track the dependencies between application assets. A practical approach is to implement an Application Performance Management (APM) solution that is specialized for Web-based applications. Learn how APM enables enterprises to monitor applications in virtualized infrastructures in real-time from the perspective of the end user to help troubleshoot problems quickly, measure Service Level Agreements (SLAs) accurately, and identify the business impact of poorly performing applications.

Speaker Bio: As Vice President of Technical Sales for CA's Application Performance Management business unit, Dan leads a world-class technical team that helps enterprise IT organizations improve their service availability and application performance through the application of the industry leading CA Wily APM solution. Dan has 8 years of experience with CA Wily Application Performance Management and has personally helped many Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies manage the performance of their mission-critical Web Applications. Prior to his tenure at CA, Dan worked at Sun Microsystems and Silicon Graphics Computer Systems (SGI) helping their customers optimize the performance of their software applications in supercomputing and grid-computing environments. Dan's roots in high performance software design originated in the seven years he spent in the Aerospace industry developing software for computational fluid dynamics analysis and visualization.

5th International Virtualization Conference & Expo - New York City - March 30-April 1, 2009
Virtualization is reorganizing the IT industry. It underpins cloud computing by making it possible to separate the software from the hardware.Overall, the virtualization market has grown from approximately $560 million in 2005 to a forecasted $2.7 billion in 2009, according to IDC. According to Gartner, virtualization will be the highest-impact IT trend changing infrastructure and operations through 2012.

While data center virtualization is still the #1 market segment, it's starting to get competition from application virtualization, storage virtualization, I/O virtualization and virtualization for end users - so called endpoint virtualization. In fact, in almost any credible survey of Top Technology Trends for 2009, Virtualization and Cloud Computing top the list. In Gartner's Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2009, it ranked #1, up from #5 last year.

Top Keynotes, Top Technical & Business Sessions, Top Delegates
The 5th International Virtualization Conference & Expo will feature 100+ technical sessions from the leading industry players from the main layers of the Cloud ecosystem - the infrastructure players, the platform providers, and those offering applications and services.
