IT Architecture Forum - Virtualization & Intel Macs

Tuesday, 7 November, 2:30pm
G01 Biotechnology Building
Racker Seminar Room

Virtualization means one computer can have multiple personalities, allowing you to run more than one operating system, sometimes simultaneously, or more than one "sandbox" running the same operating system, as with the VM operating systems of our IBM mainframes. Virtual PC and VMWare paved the way on the desktop.

The Macintosh virtualization picture has gotten much more interesting with the arrival of Intel-based Macs. Now, such tools as WINE, Apple's Boot Camp, and Parallels Workstation let you run what you want, when you want. ATA's Mark Anbinder will show different ways of running Mac OS and Windows (or even Linux) simultaneously on Intel-based Mac hardware, and even when you do and don't need Windows. We'll also talk about how server virtualization can help keep your sandboxes separate.

Refreshments will be served! Join us tomorrow for another in ATA's series of free IT Architecture Forum sessions. For archived video, audio, and presentation files from past seminars, visit the ATA web site.
