  • End user computing can really drive down the total cost of ownership (TCO) -- if you take advantage of the virtual desktops. View this video to learn how Horizon 6 can optimize your application delivery and ease of management, while lowering the costs of virtual SAN to truly begin creating your own software-defined data center.
  • End user computing solves many complex issues in today's fastest-growing industries: Healthcare, financial services, government, education, manufacturing and retail. In today's session, you'll learn about how VMware Horizon 6 address these industries' requirements using customized solutions to minimize risk for customers and accelerate time-to-value.
  • This webinar details a survey of the top 5 IT infrastructure performance issues in the education vertical. We will share how education institutions can evaluate and evolve their network infrastructure performance and get the most out of their IT applications and assets. Understanding and evaluating your IT environment can have a positive impact on the education environment, which results in a positive experience for educators and students alike. This webinar will also address the benefits of conducting IT infrastructure analytics to identify and solve these issues within your environment.
    This will help IT leaders understand their IT environment, get problem and issues under control and help plan for IT change.

    This presentation will co-presented by RISC Networks and CDI Computer Dealers Inc.
  • One of the biggest concerns for IT professionals today is finding a Disaster Recovery plan that isn't going to break the bank. Join this webinar to hear best practices in implementing an affordable and easy-to-use Disaster Recovery option for your VMware production environment and discover the latest technologies that can provide continuous and asynchronous byte-level replication over any distance between your primary and secondary locations.
  • Learn about free security books for teachers, topics taught in technology classes, topics students like the most, cell phones and drama, and why "the talk" about technology needs to start at home.

    A Call to All Teachers -- thanks to Microsoft sponsorship, McCarthy's book Digital Drama is available for free download on (September 24th - 27th) in English and Spanish. Join in on our talk and learn how teachers are using these free resources to educate the next generation workforce.

    Linda McCarthy will be talking with Fran Staniec, Technology Teacher, Taft High School, Chicago

    Taft High School in Chicago is one of the schools leading the pack by creating lesson plans and teaching their freshmen important safety measures. For example: how to create safe passwords, how to configure a secure Facebook account, antivirus installation and software updating, responsible posting for ALL devices, antibullying, and Internet safety.

    Staniec will talk about how they use the free books to create lesson plans and teach Internet safety and security in the classroom. Ask yourself: are your students ready to hit the ground running when it comes to security and entering the professional world?
  • Looking to remote workstation experiences for employees who need high quality graphics performance, including full multi-monitor and video support?

    This webinar will provide you with information on:

    - How financial services organizations, schools, media and entertainment and computer aided design/engineering companies can benefit from remote graphics deployments

    - How the AMD FirePro™ R5000 remote graphics, featuring the TERA2240, can deliver high quality graphics without compromise, anywhere on the corporate network

    - How Florida Atlantic University is able to meet its energy saving goals and deliver a robust computing experience for its students

  • BYOD is no longer a consideration, it’s a reality. Every day over 2 million new wireless devices are being activated and these devices will show up on you network. And while most wireless vendors are talking about the potential security risks, which are considerable, almost no one is discussing the impact the sheer numbers of devices will have on your networks performance.

    A recent Gartner study did and stated that ‘By 2015, 80% of newly installed wireless networks will be obsolete because of a lack of proper planning’. Many administrators still designing for coverage, when capacity limits are the true Achilles heel of wireless deployments. This session will discuss the varied client types and their capabilities, best practices to address growing device densities and how both impact overall network performance. IT administrator looking at a BYOD deployment or even just a wireless upgrade will gain valuable insight from this presentation.

    Perry Correll is a Senior Technologist as well as the Director of Product Marketing at Xirrus. His extensive networking background extends from original Ethernet Thicknet technology, through the switching revolution and now is involved in pushing advancements in Wi-Fi technology to displace wired solutions. Previous roles included technologist and management roles at Cabletron, Xylan and Alcatel.
  • If Cloud and Virtualization monitoring seem straightforward and not that big a change from what was done a few years ago, think again. These technologies add complexity that requires more than simple monitoring techniques. Join this webinar to learn what complications can arise from these technologies and why everything you ever learned about monitoring needs to be changed.
  • Desktop Virtualization is the top cloud-based technology impacting End User Computing. And, user-centric, Service Level Agreement (SLA) Management is the primary factor against which cloud-based virtual desktop solutions and providers are and will be evaluated. If you are currently evaluating, planning, or managing application performance in a Virtualized Desktop Environment, don't let your VDI project get derailed by poor end user experience.

    In VDI environments, traditional system metrics, such as CPU, memory, and network utilization, are marginal indicators of actual performance. As a result, Desktop Virtualization demands a user-centric vs. device-centric approach to service management. End User Experience (EUE) management becomes an essential barometer to ensure that end-user facing systems are responsive and high-performing. During this webinar, the following topics for ensuring Desktop Virtualization SLAs through a user-centric approach to service management will be covered:

    - How to gain comprehensive visibility into exactly how virtualized desktop and remote workstation users are experiencing critical application performance
    - How to proactively detect when performance degradations occur
    - Methods for correlating PC-over-IP® (PCoIP®) latency with the actual business
    transaction response times and the VM image’s health
    - How to gain an in-depth understanding of application performance within the VMware View™ environment, exactly as experienced by the users themselves
    - Advanced analytics around key PCoIP metrics, such as Image Quality, Round Trip Latency, Packet Lost Percentage, Available Network Bandwidth, and many other performance impacting factors
