For those of you coming to my VMworld sessions I have couple updates. Firstly, for those coming to the EUC5145 – Enterprise Mobility Management: What is It We Need to Manage? panel , I regret to inform I will not be able to attend this panel due overlapping commitments. In my place you now have VMware’s EUC CTO Scott Davis who kindly agreed to replace me for this panel with VMware Sr. Director Mobile Work Solutions, Srinivas Krishnamurti and blogger Jack Madden.
My session EUC5434 – Enterprise Architecture Design for VMware Horizon View 5.2 still stands and should be fantastic, as the subject is close to my heart and soul. In this session you’ll learn deep technical insights of the VMware Horizon View 5.2 Reference Architecture – a validated virtual desktop solution for hosted virtual desktops. Horizon View introduced many new features such as Content-Based Read Cache (CBRC), SE Sparse disks, 10,000 desktops per vCenter Server, 3D Software and Hardware rendering– and more. In this session we will cover the caveats and recommended practices to put all this technology to work in your favor and improve end-use experience.
So many things have changed with the latest VMware Horizon View release; specially around system’s architecture. In this session John Dodge and I will explain how to architect and use many of these new features, and also uncover major pitfalls that should be avoided when architecting Horizon View solutions. I Highly recommend this session for Consultants and Architects involved with VMware Horizon View solutions. It will be like ‘drinking from the hose’.
New face-melting session that I will be presenting with my colleague Ravi Kumar. The official summary description for this session is below, but you should expect to see all the amazing things we planning to deliver with Horizon View and the features you should expect in the foreseeable future. It’s like peeking into the future!
There is a 30 minute gap between this and the previous sessions and you are welcome to run with me from one session to another. It actually makes a lot of sense to attend both sessions in a row.
“Enterprises are under pressure to improve business agility and workforce productivity with declining IT budgets. To meet the demands of an increasingly mobile and dispersed workforce IT organizations are evolving and delivering new capabilities to connect and collaborate. Virtual workspaces deliver ubiquitous access to applications and data with increased security, availability and continuous compliance. In this session, we will first review the planned security and networking enhancements in VMware View releases including global server load balancing to improve availability and performance of multi data center deployments, context aware adaptive security, and IPv6 support. Second, we will discuss storage solutions particularly useful in enhancing the performance of VDI while drastically reducing the infrastructure cost. Finally we will discuss a few customer case studies and architectures on how they plan to use these new features to expand their VDI solutions.”
NEW Group Discussion! EUC1006-GD – View with Andre Leibovici
This will be an amazing intimate conversation/discussion that I will be moderating with anyone interested in all things View. Group Discussions are a good way to join together with peers, guided by a VMware expert, and discuss a VMware key topic as selected by the group. Come to this session prepared to dive-in, engage, and share best practices
Thanks and I’ll see you at VMworld!
