Enterprise Management Associates to Present a Free Webinar on Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Webinar will highlight findings from a recent research study that investigated the impact that VDI is having on the networking discipline

The allure of hosted desktop solutions is strong and growing. They offer compelling advantages in data protection, user mobility, and managed support. But a successful deployment of hosted desktop approaches such as VDI requires not only the procurement and deployment of software licenses but also careful planning around back-end systems and storage. Success also requires careful planning within the network realm for assuring that tight delivery tolerances and constraints can be met, both initially and as scale is achieved. But what steps are required of networking to assure VDI success? What networking and operations changes have been required as organizations have rolled out this new technology? What has worked and what has not?

EMA has conducted a major research study to investigate and better understand the impact that this new technology is having on the networking discipline, including how it is affecting the daily priorities of network managers and operators and the management tools, technologies, and practices they employ. The Webinar - entitled VDI Impact on Networks and Network Management: Challenges, Successes, and Best Practices - will reveal findings from this study.
