Desktop Virtualization 2014 Seminar with Shawn Bass, Brian Madden and Gabe Knuth

The future of desktop delivery is here now. But you still have to design it right.

VDI has been on everyone’s hot list for almost ten years, but it’s only now that we’re seeing the breakthroughs that make it possible, and affordable. In just this past year alone, two major game changing technologies have come to light, including support for GPUs and high quality graphics in VDI alongside low-cost storage systems that support persistent desktops. You’ll learn how to make your VDI implementation a reality with today’s newest technologies and proven techniques for any environment.

Merging of VDI and Consumerization of IT

Our jobs as IT professionals delivering end user computing are pretty complex!

In the old days, we just had to worry about delivering the Windows OS to Windows desktops. The arrival of laptops fifteen years ago changed some of the logistics (we had to learn about new things like modems, RRAS, and VPNs), but at the end of the day our job was still about delivering Windows desktops to users.

Microsoft's Surface Tablet

I guess we have to talk about Microsoft's Surface tablet. There are literally thousands of other articles describing what it is. (BW, NYT, Engadget) So instead of re-hashing that, let's get right into the real conversation that's missing from the big news sites.

The VDI Delusion

You may have noticed that I haven't written much on BrianMadden.com for the past few weeks. That's because I've been putting the final touches on our new book, The VDI Delusion: Why Desktop Virtualization Failed to Live Up to the Hype, and What the Future Enterprise Desktop will Really Look Like. This book was cowritten by Gabe Knuth, Jack Madden, and me.
