SOA and Virtualization: The Ultimate IT Power Couple

The Virtualization Freight Train Is Coming & SOA Is On Board

SOA and Virtualization are viewed today as the ultimate IT power couple.

They've been called two of today's hottest technologies: virtualization provides cost savings and flexibility, while a service-oriented architecture (SOA) affords application reuse and fast response to business needs.

At SYS-CON's 3rd International Virtualization Conference & Expo in New York City next month (June 23-24) a top lineup of industry experts will offer you the answers to the four big questions preoccupying every administrator, system analyst, system engineer and IT architect: What is a virtual machine? How does virtualization work? What are the advantages? What are the issues to watch out for? And the event is co-located with the 13th International SOAWorld Conference & Expo, so you can get the best of both worlds.

SOA and Virtualization are viewed today as the ultimate IT power couple: Virtualization simplifies SOA by easing provisioning of new hardware resources; in return SOA helps with virtualization by breaking applications into smaller chunks that are more easily spread across multiple servers or CPUs, even off-loaded to outside service providers.

Step aboard the Virtualization Freight Train in New York City - Register today and you can still save $50 on a Golden Pass to both events.

Traditional Middleware is Dead, But SOA is Alive – Come Learn How To Embrace It in Your Business
Service Oriented Architecture represents a long-term change in thinking and management of all aspects of the enterprise. Now that traditional middleware systems are generally acknowledged not to meet modern requirements, its time has truly come.

SOA is an indispensable business strategy for business agility and with interest in Web 2.0 and Rich Internet Applications increasing monthly, the need for SOA becomes ever more urgent - making SOA middleware one of the fastest growing segments of the software industry.

Come to the 13th International SOA World Conference & Expo and learn first-hand just how much SOA can do for your business, for your developers and for your customers. Register today and you'll also save $50 on a Golden Pass!

Both SOA and virtualization deal with abstraction of resources from across the network, and offer technology neutral interfaces removed from the original system. Of course, virtualization these days is mainly about running different OSes within logical partitions on a machine, while SOA is mainly about standardized interfaces, composite applications, and shared services.

The success of any SOA requires that one must gain an understanding of the true nature, performance characteristics and availability of the business transactions that flows in real-time through these highly distributed services and their supporting IT infrastructure

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
