E2EVC Virtualization Conference
 is a series of worldwide non-commercial, virtualization community Events.
Our main goal is to bring the best virtualization experts together to exchange knowledge and to establish new connections. E2EVC is a weekend crammed with presentations, Master Classes and discussions delivered by both virtualization vendors product teams and independent experts.
Started in August, 2003 with just 4 people and after 43 very successful events grown to a well-recognized event with about 250 attendees. In the last 16 years and 43 events, our conference has taken place in cities such as Athens, Munich, London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Cape Town, Frankfurt, Dublin, Orlando, Paris, Prague, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Munich, New York, Nice, Lisbon, Rome, Hamburg, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo and Vienna. On average we have 35-40 sessions at each event. Topics are - server, application, desktop, storage virtualization with products from vendors like Microsoft, VMware, Citrix and many more. Over 50 of the best virtualization community experts present their topics. Many current virtualization community leaders participated in the past or still participate in our events. It's the people that attend, presenters that present and our sponsors who make this event possible.

Its hard to be a system administrator when you’re busy fighting fires all day. And we noticed lots of administrators struggle with their existing management tools to do (what appears) to make very simple security improvements. So PolicyPak was founded on three goals:
-Don’t rip-and-replace something you already love and use.
-Make your existing tools better and more effective.
-Standardize and secure your Windows machines.
