Presented by Eric Musgrave, VP of New Product Development, triCerat, and Andrew Parlette, Director of Product Development, triCerat
This session will highlight the new Windows 7 workstation operating system, with a focus on how it could affect the VDI market. Attendees will benefit through a clear hands-on demonstration of Windows 7 running in a virtual environment, along with direct comparisons to virtualized instances of Windows XP and Vista. The primary goal of the session is to independently determine whether or not Windows 7 will provide the VDI market with an advanced operating system.
Attendees will learn whether they will be able to show their organization that there is benefit in VDI as an upgrade path to Windows 7, versus the current perception that VDI is just a costly reimplementation of a Windows XP environment.
Additionally, attendees will be able to see and learn:
- The performance of Windows 7 running in a virtualized environment
- Performance Compared to Windows XP
- Performance Compared to Windows Vista
- Highlights of the new features in Windows 7
- Compatibility pointers for upgrading to Windows 7 from Windows XP or from Windows Vista
- Baseline ROI calculations for VDI with Windows 7 versus VDI with Windows XP
Attendees will leave this session better equipped to do their jobs because they will have a clear understanding of the upcoming Windows 7 operating system and its advantages and disadvantages. By seeing a clear comparison of Windows 7 running in a virtual environment versus its predecessors, attendees will have a head start when they begin their evaluation of upgrade paths to the latest Microsoft operating system.
