Presenter: Brad Maltz
While virtual desktops have been around for a few years, organizations are starting to truly transition into newer virtual desktop designs through VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft VDI and others. Unfortunately backup and restore environments have not been redesigned along with the new VDI rollouts.
During this session, Maltz will discuss many facets of backup and restore for VDI including: Do you need to backup anything? The Desktop OS? Application Data? What are backup technologies / vendors that can simplify VDI backups? How do other large VDI environments backup their environments? What administrative best practices can be implemented to simplify VDI backups?
