John Kelbley, Data Center Specialist, Microsoft

VDI and Client Virtualization: Look before you leap!

Lots of folks are talking about VDI, but do you really need it?  There are many forms of “client” virtualization besides managing client VMs in an expensive datacenter.  Did you know that you can quickly create an entire VDI infrastructure with Windows Server 2012?   Did you know that you can run Windows 8 from a USB stick?  Attend this meeting to get a broad perspective on and see demonstration of client virtualization options including User Experience Virtualization, Remote App, Windows To Go, and VDI using tools from Microsoft you may already own!
