Microsoft kicked off the “‘Get Virtual Now” event this morning in Bellevue, Washington.  The event series is designed to educate more than 250,000 IT professionals on Microsoft virtualization products, deployment tools and partner solutions, helping customers to virtualize from the datacenter to the desktop, and manage with the same tools they’re already using for their physical infrastructure.  With more than 125 events planned, the event series started Aug. 3 in South Africa, and by early 2009 will have covered more than 50 other countries.

 

Microsoft’s Bob Muglia and Kevin Turner will begin their afternoon keynote at 12:30 PDT.  To view the live webcast, visit the Microsoft Virtual Press Room.
