New! Listen to this post in our daily podcast.
This week, Guise Bule from tuCloud joined us on Brian & Gabe Live. You may know Guise as the CEO of tuCloud, and while we wanted to ask about how all that works, we invited Guise on to talk about his latest activity in the ongoing Microsoft/OnLive licensing fiasco. Last week, he announced a DaaS offering that purposefully defies Microsoft licensing rules. That alone was enough for us to invite him on the show. Thanks to everybody for the great conversation!
Here are the topics we actually covered in today's show:
- Guise launched a proof-of-concept website, but it's not actually possible to legally deliver VDI desktops for $10.
- Security is a concern because hacking other people's IP will always have better ROI than doing your own R & D.
- Multiple VMs for security—is this realistic?
- Non-persistant VDI versus non-persistant Terminal Server.
- Microsoft doesn't allow VDI multi-tenancy, which kills a lot of use cases.
- How single TS users in non-persistant sessions can affect an entire persistant Terminal Server.
- We're done with our new book, "The VDI Delusion"!
- VMware posts a job opening for Senior Director of Product Marketing for Horizon.
- VMware WSX—where does it fit? (We don't know yet.)
- Sites like Wired and Engadget are easily impressed by 5 and 10 year old desktop virtualization technology.
- Employee created corporate data versus corporate-created data: Can one file syncing solution work for both?
