This is a video of a breakout session from BriForum 2008, presented by Joe Shonk and Steve Greenberg.
Session Description: If you strip away the marketing fluff and took a look at VDI from a business and technical requirements perspective you’ll find there are many cases in which a VDI solution makes more sense than a traditional SBC solution.
- Application Integration is getting more difficult, talk about 15 year trends and challenges
- Developed many application compatibility tricks and technologies over these years, got closer each year, but the slope approaches zero, the goals continues to slip away
- Promise of application virtual is incomplete in practice, still encountering critical apps that don’t play well (services, object communication, etc.)
- Our recent success use many advanced techniques to accomplish integration, these are becoming harder to transition for the end user to own and maintain
- Applications are getting worse not better particular in the areas of run-time environments such as .Net and Java, what was intended to be portable and highly efficient is ending up bloating and loading down servers, particularly in RAM
- Management of a VDI solution promises to simpler and inline with existing workflows used to manage and maintain traditional PC. SBC solutions typical required company to invest in highly skilled employees to deploy and maintain.
