Presenter: Ruben Spruijt
Co-Presenter: Jeroen van de Kamp
In this energetic session, Spruijt will present all the important results and best practices for Virtual Desktop (VDI) and Terminal Server workloads found in Project: Virtual Reality Check.
This unbiased and independent R&D project started early in 2009. All together more than 400 tests were carried out. The goal of Project VRC is to analyze the developments in the application and desktop virtualization market and present the results in a unbiased and independent way. In the haze of the extreme amount of innovations and many marketing promises, this information is highly appreciated.
The topics in this fast paced session are:
- Introduction on Project VRC
- Highlights performance differences and best practice conclusions for Terminal Services and VDI workloads on bare metal Terminal Services; 2003/2008/x86/x64
- Hypervisors: Microsoft Hyper-V v2, VMware vSphere 4.0, Citrix XenServer 5.5
- VDI: Windows XP, Vista, Windows7
- Performance impact using different HP Proliant state-of-the-art hardware solutions
- Performance impact of application virtualization in virtual desktop environments
- Future plans and roadmap
Whether you are looking for an independent advisor and a "reality check" in relation to virtualizing Terminal Server and virtual desktop workloads, curious what the impact of different hypervisors and the performance differences with various hardware is, or you are searching for best practices for your virtual desktops, you must attend this presentation!
