Portsmouth, NH (PRWEB) May 20, 2010
ITSessions today announced a one-day Desktop Virtualization seminar in Boston, at the Boston Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center on June 17, 2010. This seminar kicks off a new series of technology and business oriented seminars for IT professionals, which analyze technologies topics in a more revealing, questioning and learning methodology.
The Desktop Virtualization seminar entitled “Why it’s Real at Last and Why One Size Does Not Fit All” will feature the opening keynote presentation from Barb Goldworm of FOCUS. Goldworm, one of the leading independent industry experts on virtualization, will kick off the event by discussing the current state of desktop and application virtualization, including barriers eliminated available technologies and solutions, and how the available technologies map to various user requirements.
“With the move to Windows 7, IT organizations are faced with how to manage the upgrade of every desktop and application in the company” stated Barb Goldworm of Focus. “Desktop and application virtualization hold the promise of solving this problem along with myriad desktop management problems that have been plaguing IT for decades. But until recently, multiple barriers prevented widespread adoption of virtual desktop technologies, and in fact, many early desktop virtualization projects failed as a result.” “In this seminar we will present an informative and cross-vendor one-day session to hear how previous barriers now have been eliminated and why 2010 is becoming the year for desktop virtualization”, stated Wayne Nummelin, President of ITSessions.
In this seminar, attendees will learn about all the various options available today – from major virtualization vendors and emerging startups – and why one size does not fit all. Hear the latest about the available desktop and application virtualization technologies and how to assess your user desktop requirements across your entire organization and determine how to successfully select and implement the right technologies for your organization. Sessions throughout the day will include:
- Discussions on best practices for implementation including desktop image management, application virtualization and management and user virtualization
- Insights on the role of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) versus session/presentation virtualization technologies such as Citrix XenApp/Presentation Server and MS Remote Desktop Services (RDS)/Terminal Services
- The role of desktop access devices from rich clients to thin clients to zero clients to IPADs to smart phones and BYOC
- The latest improvements in handling 3D graphics and video for session and desktop virtualization
- How to build a business case that identifies all the potential benefits and savings
- An opportunity to network with virtualization thought leaders and your peers
- Continental breakfast, lunch and snacks will be served
Additional planned seminars include Storage and Virtualization, Cloud Computing, IT Cost Optimization Security and Designing a Resilient Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery Infrastructure, held regularly at the Boston Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center beginning June 17th.
