"Client-based VMs will leverage the power of local computing, enable offline, allow great local performance, require smaller data center footprints, provide for centralized management, provide for easy backup and rollback, etc." and "90% of the future 'VDI' will be client-based"- Brian Madden
This session will set out to explore and examine these statements by looking at the underlying architecture and design of a client hypervisor to identify the potential benefits and limitations of this approach.
Tokeshi will cover the technical architecture of a type I hypervisor and how and where it can be successfully used. A comprehensive demonstration of XenClient will be done live as well an interactive stress test to see how and where it can be broken.
