Implementing Virtual Data Infrastructure so desktops can be easily managed, updated and secured is a challenge many large enterprises plan to address in 2010. But the benefits of reduced costs and accelerated application delivery promised by VDI aren't easy to realize without the right processes and management tools. To help IT organizations succeed with VDI, Unidesk Chief Solution Architect Ron Oglesby will lead a how-to session called "Virtual Desktop Project Planning: How to Design, Modify and Implement" at CampIT's VDI/Desktop Virtualization Strategies conference April 22 at 11:30 a.m. CDT in Rosemont, Ill.
At Unidesk®, Oglesby specializes in a critical new component of VDI known as virtual desktop management software. Using innovative desktop layering technology, virtual desktop management software extends VDI by integrating into a single solution the ability to reduce VDI storage costs, deliver a fully personal user experience and simplify provisioning, patching and application delivery.
IT organizations deploying VDI with VMware View™, Citrix XenDesktop™, Microsoft VDI or other solutions will benefit from Oglesby's many years of desktop experience and extensive knowledge of virtualization technologies and their practical implementations. A best-selling author of advanced technical design guides for VMware and Microsoft Terminal Services, Oglesby was previously the Practice Executive for Virtualization Services at Dell, where he developed methodologies to help customers implement their virtualization and consolidation initiatives.
Oglesby's presentation will show attendees how to develop workable VDI implementation checklists, offer practical advice on how to design and modify their hardware and software environments, and explain how to manage distributed environments while avoiding pitfalls. A key focus will be on how to use VDI in conjunction with a rollout of Microsoft Windows 7.
"Our goal is to ensure VDI implementers have smooth experiences with VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop and other connection brokers, and overcome the cost, user experience and management challenges that are currently hindering widespread adoption," said Oglesby.
