Presented by Brian Madden, Industry Analyst and Blogger
A lot has been written about the concept of the “client hypervisor.” Some people think these things represent the future of computing and that they’ll soon be “built in” to every PC in the world. Others think they’re a bunch of hogwash.
Regardless of what you think, they’re coming! Neocleus and Virtual Computer are both shipping products today, and both Citrix and VMware have announced their client hypervisor visions and plan to release something by the end of the year.
Meanwhile two huge companies, Microsoft and Symantec, have both publicly made fun of client hypervisors.
In this session, Brian Madden will look at the promise of the client hypervisor. He’ll provide some hands on show-and-tell of the two shipping products, and he’ll talk about what’s publicly known of the offerings from Citrix and VMware. Finally, he’ll share insight into his talks with Microsoft and Symantec, two (big and powerful) companies who arguably have a good stake in making sure client hypervisors never reach the mainstream.
