In the autumn of 2010 a seminar, about virtualization and Hybrid clouds, was held in Karlstad. Lectures were given by Johan de Gelas, Liz Van Dijk and Philip Dubois from The Sizing Server Lab part of Howest in Kortrijk, Belgium.
During a full day the 21 participants learned about how to optimize current applications and infrastructure in a more flexible virtualized environment. They were taught how to build a green and high performance infrastructure and optimizing with focus on databases. They shared their findings on present hard and software on the market from global suppliers to the participants. Finally the group got a glaze of the future with elastic databases in the cloud.
Contacts between Compare companies and The Sizing Servers Lab were made and will hopefully result in future cooperation and business.
