I bet you think I’m going to say that the most amazing thing at Cloud Expo is my presentation, “Cloud VDI: Leveraging the Full Potential of the Cloud.” Actually, that’s the second most amazing thing.
The most amazing thing you’ll see is the tenth anniversary of Cloud Expo. Can you believe the cloud has been around for 10 years? And yet, after all that time, we’re only now starting to truly capitalize on it. And one of the key technologies in play this year is VDI, short for virtual desktop infrastructure.
Pairing desktop virtualization with the cloud delivers eye-popping benefits for IT organizations, from powering your mobile workforce to enabling you to access the full richness and wealth of your computing environment on any device at any time.
It also dramatically reduces the Total Cost of Ownership of delivering and operating desktop virtualization technology. In many cases, companies can realize a 70 percent to 80 percent reduction in common network and security administration burden by outsourcing the infrastructure to a service provider.
I’ll be covering this and more in my presentation, including the following:
- Different desktop deployment models
- How enterprises are currently utilizing these architectures
- Benefits, including centralized application publishing, security, and administration
- Hosting and presenting critical line-of-business applications
- Managing performance and application rendering in a cloud-based delivery mode
- Investment protection and virtual desktop TCO principles
- Practical examples and use-cases
Yes, the cloud has been around for 10 years, but the time is now to start capitalizing on it. And we want to show you how. Come see me Wednesday, June 13 from 2:25 p.m. to 3:10 p.m., or stop by our booth, #461.
The expo itself runs from June 11-14. Be sure to register for the event if you haven’t already.
