  • Mobile and VDI (2.2 MB)
  • In the past few years, the world of IT has seen some amazing new technologies. We have seen the advent of mobile smart phones, intelligent tables, and ever faster personal computers.

    One of the biggest issues in corporate IT is the potential of losing highly sensitive data by using these devices. Another interesting aspect of the growth of corporate desktops in the recent years is the increase of refresh windows for end user computing devices. In the past 10 years, companies have increase the refresh rate from around 18 months to potentially over 5 year. This can make development, testing and other compute intensive work very difficult.

    Using Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)  technology, we can provide a way for end users to connect to a virtual server environment that can grow as needed. Since the environment is based on virtualization, end users can share back end computing resources. Their endpoint may not need to be refreshed as often, yet they can still have access to faster equipment. Due to the standardization of the interconnect between the end user's client and the VDI infrastructure, the client can chose from a variety of client devices. These device range from thick clients that require a workstation, to tablets like the iPAD, and even smart phones.

    This session will cover an overview of these new technologies and how they could impact enterprise computing. You may learn things that will make your job easier and quicker.
