Virtualization Beyond Servers: Delivering a New Desktop and Application Deployment Strategy

Tuesday, May 17 | 10:30am - 11:20am | Seville Ballroom West (1st Floor)
Session Type: Professional Development
This presentation will highlight a new model for delivering desktops and applications as a service from the perspective of several leading academic institutions. This model represents a fundamental change in the way the desktops are currently constructed, delivered, and managed. Decoupling the user persona from the local OS and application layers lessen the need for local desktop support, giving technical staff located in schools and departments greater capacity to innovate. Whether delivered via server-based computing, hosted virtual desktops, a PC, or all in combination, the user experience remains consistent and predictable.
