If you're virtualizing your data center then the Virtualization Launch will be of great interest to you!!!!
Currently, the launch will take place on September 8th, 2008 in Bellevue, WA. However, there should be additional events around the US to be announced shortly! So if you're in the Seattle area sign-up for the launch NOW as space is limited!!!! If you're not in Seattle, once I know what other cities will have launch events I'll post it here!!
(Are virtualizing and virtualization real words? If so, why do they fail in spell check? J )
Here's some of the information from the getVIRTUALnow site:
