Virtualizing Apps, Desktops, Servers, and Everything in Between

Tuesday, March 09 | 12:30PM–1:20PM | Room 553
Session Type: Professional Development
“Virtualization” is a trendy buzzword in IT, but knowing what and why you're implementing it will help decide the best approach. At Wesleyan and Sacred Heart universities, we have implemented several different solutions. Learn what some of our unknown and unexpected costs were before you roll out virtualization on your campus. We will share insight on the critical role of user experience in a successful implementation and give a live demo of virtual desktops for users in action. Whether you're looking at 50, 500, or 5,000 nodes, a few bad user experiences can bring the project to a halt.
