Desktop computers have been in existence for over 30 years, but the innovation in the last 10 years has fundamentally transformed the way we use them. The desktop is now increasingly found in the cloud, thanks to the technological advancements leading to the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). While VDI has been in existence for the past 8 years or so, it has become more relevant in the banking and insurance industries in recent years. Insurance agents and Wealth Managers work in a heavily regulated industry. While adhering to heavy regulations, the Insurance Agents and Wealth Managers have a critical need to access important information in real time to better serve their clients.
Now with VDI they’re able to break free from the limitations of the traditional infrastructure, being able to access real time information any time anywhere, enabling them to focus on their clients’ needs. Join us in this session to learn from Craig Beattie from Celent and Muthu Somasundaram from VMware, how VDI has helped accelerate the pace of innovation in the Insurance and Wealth management industry, while maintaining compliance with all regulations.
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) has obvious benefits: Cost-savings, centralized management and improved security. But implementing a robust solution can be difficult and often make implementation now worth the effort if done improperly.
Join former Gartner analyst Mark Margevicius as he discusses lessons learned and best practices for a practical VDI deployment so you too can see the benefits of VDI.
As organizations deploy VDI to improve desktop management, enable enterprise mobility and protect data, new security concerns can arise with hundreds or even thousands of virtualized users residing amidst mission-critical data center infrastructure.
Join us to learn how to:
Protect against the proliferation of “east-west” threats that can occur within the data center
Simplify and accelerate the on-boarding of virtual desktops to networking and security policy
Automate the enforcement of policy across your extended data center infrastructure
While VDI holds great promise for flexibility, cost savings and convenience, administrators frequently run into unexpected performance issues that cause much end-user frustration and often stall adoption or expansion of the VDI deployments.
Attend this webinar to learn real-world lessons on how a customer resolved a gnarly VDI deployment and turned it into a smoothly run operation supporting thousands of end-users.
IT organizations around the globe are faced with replacing aging traditional desktops and laptops with more secure infrastructure. For public sector organizations these security requirements are the most stringent and so many are considering a virtualized environment to improve security, save money, and ease complexity.
Attend this webinar to learn how to meet the challenges of increasing security mandates for in-office and mobile staff. Learn about the benefits of Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure and how VDI using PCoIP and zero clients provides a more secure environment immune to hacker attacks.
In this presentation we will cover:
• Recent security enhancements in virtual desktop technology using the Teradici PCoIP protocol
• How zero clients deliver an ultra-secure and easy to administer computing experience
• Zero clients are now mobile. Learn about the industry’s first PCoIP laptop and how it is an ideal solution for those who need security and mobility.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers from our PCoIP experts.
In this webinar, I will discuss some of the great Application Virtualization tools on the market today. Some tools which empower an organization to create portable application containers, others which allow streaming of applications and also some which provide the increasingly popular method of application layering. I will explain the concepts and benefits to each. I plan to discuss solutions such as App-V, ThinApp, Cameyo, Spoon, AppVolumes, Unidesk and FlexApp. Going into details of what I like and dislike about each, as well their suitability for delivering a solid experience on both Persistent and Non-Persistent virtual desktops. I would like to also discuss some of my favorite combinations of products that I've used to successfully deliver on VDI projects in the past.Read more >
Virtualization is becoming an integral of every organization's processes today and yet IT professionals are still struggling to find efficient ways of monitoring their virtual infrastructure to ensure its performance justifies the costs.
In this video, see a walkthrough of Xangati's VDI Dashboard to learn how it can help you gain visibility into your virtual infrastructure and improve performance of your VDI.
If you have an existing VDI deployment or are evaluating one, then this webinar is a must attend for you. VDI deployments are convenient for their ease of on-boarding end users.
However, many VDI deployments suffer from intermittent performance issues that are difficult to diagnose because of the layers of interconnected infrastructure components.
Being able to accurately monitor the health and performance of your VDI infrastructure can have a significant impact on productivity and efficiency of your enterprise. View this short video for an overview of the latest technologies available today that can help you achieve this goal.Read more >
The top concern for IT planners looking to implement or expand the use of their VDI investment is storage performance. This is because every step that is taken to drive down cost per desktop, or improve the user experience, impacts storage performance and capacity. All-flash arrays address the performance problem with a sledgehammer and for many environments they can be the most cost effective option. But for others, hybrid solutions may make more sense.
Join Storage Switzerland and Tegile Systems for a live, interactive webinar as we discuss the various challenges that VDI scale brings to storage and how All-Flash Arrays and Hybrid Arrays can address those challenges.
Every day hundreds of Public Administration organizations roll out hundreds and thousands of new virtual desktops. Centrally managing desktops rather than hundreds of devices is appealing but the costs associated with data storage devices with enough horsepower to handle boot storms and virus scans can kill projects before they even get off the ground. Join Vince LaPaglia, Technical Marketing Engineer and VMware Certified Professional from NexGen to discuss new value-driven data management capabilities required to roll out cost effective VDI projects that deliver a superior end user experience.Read more >
