BITS Pilani Bond with the Best to be a Cut above the Rest

One of the hottest technology topics these days, Virtualization is the creation of substitutes for real resources, that is, substitutes that have the same functions and external interfaces as their counterparts, but that differ in attributes, such as size, performance, and cost. Virtualization benefits include reduction of hardware cost by consolidation, optimization of workloads, IT Flexibility and responsiveness.

On Saturday 08 Sep 2007, with Virtualization as the focus, the IBM Technology Day celebrations took off at the Lecture Theatre Complex of BITS Pilani with Prof Rahul Banerjee’s crisp welcome note. BITS Alumnus Kalapriya Kannan from IBM India Research Labs (IRL) gave a talk on Recent Research in Virtualization which was followed by a talk on Virtualization in P series by BITS Alumnus Radhika Parameswaran from IBM India Software Labs (ISL).

MSRI Research Fellow Biju Raveendran who is doing PhD at BITS Pilani gave a talk on Energy Efficient File System for Flash Devices. Srikanth Srinivasan from ISL spoke on Distributed and Cluster File Systems. Dr RK Shyamsundar Manager Programming Languages and Software Engineering from IRL gave an enlightening talk on Research and Opportunities at IRL.
