Configuring a VDI image is a complex task for the systems engineer. This session will help prepare the engineer for creating an image as well as vetting and troubleshooting it before it gets to production. Topics include:
- Image Creation Best Practices (Scripts, What-to-dos, What not-to-dos)
- Image Testing (Tools free and not)
- Troubleshooting (How to find out what’s wrong when it goes wrong)
- VDI Deployments (Why?)
- User Experience Monitoring (You need it, but how?)
Horizon 7 allows you to deliver virtual or hosted desktops and applications through a single platform while providing end users access to all of their virtual desktops, applications and online services through a single digital workspace. Join our 3-part webcast series, Modernize your VDI Environment with Horizon 7 to learn how Horizon 7 provides a streamlined approach to delivering, protecting and managing virtual desktops (VDI) and apps while containing costs and ensuring that end users can work anytime, anywhere, across any device. In episode three we will explore common VDI desktop models. More specifically, we will cover the 4 basic models for VDI desktops and how to choose the one(s) that is right for your organization.Read more >
After much thought and hard work, your VDI environment is finally up and running, but are boot storms and unpredictable user workloads bringing you down? Tired of getting calls from your users that their desktops are slow? Are rogue VDI users eating up tons of bandwidth causing your entire environment to suffer? See how easy it can be to set up 1000 VDI seats with VMware Horizon View 7.x and not have to worry about storage!Read more >

На вебинаре мы расскажем о применении гиперконвергентных систем HPE на основе опыта партнеров и заказчиков, полученного в 2016 году.
Среди примеров: полная миграция ИТ-окружения заказчика в гиперконвергентную среду, оснащение филиальной сети крупного федерального предприятия стандартными масштабируемыми системами HPE, решение для организации инфраструктуры виртуальных рабочих мест (VDI) "из коробки" с HPE HC380.
Storage benchmarks are not made equal. In fact, it's easy to stretch the truth, or obscure less palatable data. That's why we subjected Tintri to the Evaluator Group's IOmark VDI benchmarking. Turns out, Tintri's data reduction efficiency surpassed any storage system tested to date for VDI workloads. Tintri could boot 3,000 fully provisioned virtual desktops in 1,004 seconds. Moreover, Tintri provided performance and capacity monitoring at the per-VM level. The Evaluator Group's numbers don't lie: if you're looking into VDI, look no further.Read more >

In episode one we will deep dive into user segmentation, provisioning and delivery tools within your Horizon environment. More specifically, we'll identify the different user groups inside your organization and collect the data you need to be successful as well as examine the options for creating virtual desktops and understand how each applies to different use cases.Read more >
The goal of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is to lower the operational costs of supporting an organization’s desktops and laptops. A VDI project should make it easier for IT to support users, keep the organization safe from viruses and better protect its data assets. The key to a successful VDI project is user adoption. But while many organizations consider using an All-Flash Array (AFA) to deliver the performance that will lead to user adoption, the problem is AFAs drive up the cost per desktop, increase the vulnerability of the architecture and encourage additional storage silos.
Join Storage Switzerland and Cloudistics for an informative webinar that will provide an alternative approach that meets user’s performance expectations while leveraging existing – and often already paid for – storage hardware and does not introduce new silos of storage.
Wes Wright, CIO of Seattle Children's, describes how ExtraHop helped to find the "ghost in the machine" that was slowing down their Citrix VDI deployment. ExtraHop provides real-time ICA analysis as well as correlated visibility for the rest of the Citrix environment. Also speaking is Tim Holt, Senior Director of Enterprise Architecture.Read more >
The rapid evolution of technology means that something difficult to manage or expensive one day, can become simple and inexpensive in a blink of an eye. This is how hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is transforming virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) as VDI’s biggest challenges rapidly disappear. If you’re still hanging on to your Sony Walkman, then maybe VDI isn’t for you. For everyone else, join us to learn why VDI makes sense today.
In this business webinar we will look at five specific VDI challenges that are disappearing thanks to HCI and technology advances:
•New instant clones in Horizon 7 and their impact on storage requirements
• All-flash HCI solutions that lower costs and improve performance—without tradeoffs
•The benefits of VMware Virtual SAN over other HCI solutions and traditional storage models
During this webcast, VDI experts will cover a wide-range topics to insure your VDI rollout will be flawless.Read more >
The benefits of virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) are clear - enabling secure and efficient BYOD, streamlining IT administration, and reducing operational costs. Key to any VDI deployment is end-user satisfaction and adoption.
Because best practice dictates disabling Windows indexing to ensure optimal resource performance, end-users tend to be frustrated by poor search experiences.
With X1 Search Virtual Edition™, it is possible to provide an excellent end-user search experience while deploying VDI in a way that conserves virtual computing resources. It creates a win-win solution because both IT and end-users are happy. As a result, VDI deployments gain traction and breadth.
That is why Gartner says, "Budget for a product like X1 to provide search capabilities to improve the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) user experience" in the April 2, 2015 report Cool Vendors in Endpoint Computing, 2015.
Hear Citrix and X1 search experts discuss how to harness the benefits of VDI while maintaining and improving end-user productivity.
In this webinar you will:
- See why desktop and enterprise search are critical elements of end-user productivity
- Learn how to enable lighting fast end-user retrieval of emails and files even without Windows indexing
- Understand how to reap all the benefits of VDI while still providing end-users with a user-friendly, intuitive search solution architected to also conserve VDI resources
- See how one large organization is using X1 Search as a carrot to get more users on to virtual desktops
No registration required - Join Storage Switzerland and Cloudistics as we discuss the storage challenges that VDI creates and discuss if All-Flash is the only way to solve those problems.Read more >
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.
