Architecting and Supporting the Back-End Infrastructure for the Consumerization of IT
Windows 7 is the hottest OS on the planet, but as end-users try to use non-Windows devices for work it is more important than ever that IT stay on the ball. VDI is the solution to deliver Windows 7 securely on both unmanaged Windows clients as well as non-Windows devices.
This free lunch and learn session will show you how to plan for, build, and manage your VDI environment on Microsoft’s Hyper-V, using Citrix’s Xen Desktop and System Center Virtual Machine Manager to manage it, including creating templates, easy provisioning, and improving the end-user experience.
Come see how you can make your life easier while giving the end user what they want in a safe and secure way!

There are lots of players out there in the Virtualization Market. All of them have options to help you build a highly available solution to virtualize and protect your servers all with varying costs associated with them. Did you know Microsoft has a solution that you can cut your teeth into even if you are just learning the ropes and don’t have access to high end SAN hardware? Join us for a demo intensive 90 minute session that builds a solution from scratch and gives you the skills to bring this technology into your organization or customer environments for a fraction of the cost of the competitors offerings (you know who we’re talking about). This session will cover the story of an organization looking to enhance their current infrastructure and virtualization solutions. It will start with the requirements, proceed into the build process and demonstrate all of its capabilities including post deployment management. Do you have questions to ask? Are you more familiar with “the other guys” offerings and need to have some clarity on what is actually capable with the Microsoft Virtualization offerings? This session is for you – we’re leaving plenty of time for questions along the way.
