2009-04-23 Meeting What's New with Citrix 




Sorry to inform you that due to technical difficulties, the ONLINE portion of the event will not happen this month.  We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.  Hope you can make the LIVE event in Waltham.  We should be able to work out the technical difficulties by next month.  We have plenty of giveaways today so hopefully that will make up for the inconvenience.


Virtualization Group - Boston will hold our monthly virtualization training and networking meeting on 4/23 TODAY. We will start off the meeting with “What’s in the News” along with Networking and Q & A. We will jump into the heart of the presentation at 7pm. Though we will typically have two topics per night, we will only have one topic split into two parts on this night due to the sheer vastness of the topic, we want to have plenty of time for Q&A and prizes.

Meeting Date: April 23, 2008 - Today

Title: virtualization- let me count the ways!

6:00-6:45 What’s in the News, Networking and Q & A
7:00-7:45 Citrix XenApp, XenServer, XenDesktop and More: Part A
8:00-8:45 Citrix XenApp, XenServer, XenDesktop and More: Part B


We will discuss what, where, and when to virtualize. How all the types of virtualization fit together and then see a demo of how Citrix and Microsoft are working together in this area.

Presenter: Jerry Shea, Lead Systems Engineer, Citrix

Jerry Shea has worked in the IT industry for over 30 years, and has been working with Citrix products since 1996 filling such roles as Citrix Administrator, Engineer, Architect and consultant.
