Learn the benefits of IPM at Gartner Data Center Conference

Raj Patel, Sr. Director, Corporate and Field Marketing –

Most people associate December with seasonal holidays, and while we certainly don’t disagree, here at Virtual Instruments we have another reason to look forward to this final month of 2014: the Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference in Las Vegas.

There’s a lot happening at this event, with plenty of prominent keynote speakers, exhibitors and workshops to educate and inform the many IT professionals in attendance. The Virtual Instruments team will be there in full force, and we’ve compiled our offerings for you to check out. Here’s what we’ll be up to during the conference:

  • John Gentry, our vice president of marketing and alliances, will speak on Wednesday, December 3 from 11:15 to 12:00 p.m. in Room Titian 2301A. His session, “Infrastructure Performance Management (IPM): How to Align Applications and Infrastructure to take your weekends back,” will cover new research that sheds light onto how some of the top global companies, including 38 of the Fortune 100, are investing in IPM strategies. John will look at how businesses can ensure that their application infrastructures—across on premise, cloud and virtualized environments—are optimized to perform at peak levels for the lowest possible risk and cost; enabling IT performance teams to do less reactive troubleshooting, more proactive trouble-killing and performance optimization, and take back their weekends.
  • We’ll be at booth 352 with plenty going on for those who stop by. The team will be offering free live demos of our VirtualWisdom4 platform, but it’s not going to be all business. We’ll also be holding two drawings for anyone who gets scanned at our booth – you can win a Parrot AR. Drone. Lastly, for anyone who’s interested in scoring some free swag while at the event (and who isn’t?), we’ll be giving away T-shirts, journals and – a crucial accessory – 5-in-1 charger cables.
  • If you’re not following @Virtual_Inst yet on Twitter, now is a good time to start. We’ll be doing an Image of the Day contest. All you need to do is follow our feed, be on the lookout for the image and then retweet it with the hashtag #TakeBackYourWeekend. You’ll be entered into a prize drawing for our giveaways: $250 gift cards to American Express, American Airlines and Sports Authority. With the holidays right around the corner, now seems like a good time to get an extra gift card in your wallet. Just make sure you don’t leave before the drawing; you need to be present at the event to claim your prize.
