Virtual Desktops' Seven Dirty Secrets

There has been an increasing level of activity around virtual desktops.  Major vendors have been announcing virtual desktop initiatives with varying levels of hype.  This talk will dive in to the realities of virtual desktop deployment (as deep as we can go in 45 minutes), sort out real benefits, and shoot holes in all of the wild promises.  Where are good fits, how personal do you really want to get, and how much will it really save you?  We’ll address these questions and more.

Eric Hanselman is the chief technology officer for Leostream Corporation. With more than 20 years of virtualization and information technology security experience, Eric is responsible for guiding the strategic vision of the Leostream Connection Broker, as well as providing technical expertise in the practical application of virtualization management to Leostream's customers. Prior to joining Leostream, Eric worked with technology leaders including IBM and NEC, where he was involved in the introduction of many new technologies ranging from virtualization management systems to roll-outs for IPv6. Eric has written and spoken extensively on virtualization and security technology and their applications. Eric is a member of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.), a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), a VMware Certified Professional (VCP) and is a frequent speaker at leading industry events

We had a video issue at the meeting.  The opening session is audio only.  The presentation by Eric has the audio with the slides.  Eric's presentation is a classic at how a vendor should present to a User Group!
