Quest's Rob Mallicoat shows some new features of vWorkspace 7.1

I had a chance to catch up with Quest this week while at MMS 2010, just a few days after their announcement of vWorkspace 7.1.  Rob Mallicoat (who also joined us for Geek Week earlier this year) took a few minutes to show off some of the new features. In this video, we talk about the addition of support for Hyper-V diff disks, the integration with Microsoft's Windows 2008 R2 Connection Broker, and we'll have a quick conversation about the updates made to Quest's EOP Xtream enhancements to RDP.

Thanks for the update on vW 7.1. Very interesting. Really.

Regarding audio. Yeah, I laso had that. It just vanished, came back, vanished.... Rather than being a Flash 10.1 RC issue I think it's down to prioratizing stream within the codec when b/w suffers -  where audio is taking the low prio beat. Well, thats my guess :)

Sorry all,

It appears that the lower bitrate renditions of this video work well, but the higher bitrate ones aren't working. I'll have to re-upload this video before I can change it, so we're looking at a couple hours.

Some excellent stuff. Quite a good set of new features for a DOT release/update.

It would be good to get some info on differencing disk scaling/limits/etc. How does it compare to the not-so-impressive link clones from VMware? - limits of 64VM's per LUN/replica?

The sysprep addition is most welcome too. I hate Windows System Image Manager!!

Dan.

@ Daniel, Microsoft has a document on the performancing and scaling of VHDs in 2008 R2.
