The last few years have proved to be transformative years for VDI. Storage technologies that solve the performance and cost issues of virtual desktop infrastructure have come into the mainstream. We are seeing improvements in GPU technologies that have enabled the highest-end workloads to be virtualized. Now that VDI technology has advanced and more companies are actually starting to implement it, it's time to focus on the 10 things you can do to be successful with VDI in 2015!

Join us when the Virtual Desktop Road Tour rolls into your city to get a behind-the-scenes look at real-world VDI implementations, so you can learn from early adopters – and design your environment with a no-fail strategy.

This seminar is MUST ATTEND for IT strategists and administrators who are considering (or expanding) investments in desktop virtualization, virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) or investigating options around "Desktop-as-a-Service" to help manage and secure the end user compute environment.

Here is your once-a-year, no-fee opportunity to get the most honest, vendor-neutral advice you'll find anywhere on VDI. Explore 10 steps to success with VDI:

  1. Distinguish vendor hype from reality (which products do what, and who’s actually using them)
  2. Design your environment with a no-fail strategy
  3. Determine when NOT to use VDI - and discover the alternatives
  4. Understand the key technical requirements that every IT pro should consider before selecting a VDI solution

Admission to this seminar is FREE but seating is limited.
