Two videos in two days? Don't worry. We're not converting the website over to a video-only format. This second episode of Brian Madden TV was recorded at the same time as our first episode (with the same beta feel). Originally we were planning on releasing this episode on the regular Thursday schedule a full week after the first one, but as it turns out, next Thursday's episode is already scheduled to be our VMworld round-up, and then we have the Microsoft MVP Summit and the Symantec ManageFusion round-ups the two Thursdays after at. So today's show is sort of an out-of-cycle bonus release.
In this episode of Brian Madden TV, Brian and Gabe discuss their predictions for the desktop and application virtualization industry for 2009. Specific conversations include:
- An analysis of The Yankee Group's predictions for which vendors will win and lose in 2009.
- 2009 will be the year of the client hypervisor discussion
- What VECD means for Microsoft moving forward
- Windows 7 will be a catalyst for desktop change
- Windows 7 and Calista
- VMware's Teradici co-development agreement
- What will Red Hat do with spice?
- Quest's EOP protocol
- Citrix owned the Terminal Server space, but no one owns the VDI space
- Cloud-based desktops
Tune in next Thursday, February 26 for Brian Madden TV Episode #3 - recorded live from VMworld Europe in Cannes, France.
