BriForum 2012 London video: VDI Smackdown 2012 and Understanding the Impact of Storage on VDI

More and more customers see the benefits of server-hosted virtualization desktops (VDI). There are several important players in this market space, and from a marketing perspective these solutions have a lot in common.

This presentation is based on customer cases and covers the basics of desktop virtualization, the demands of customers, the technical differences between the products, and tips on how to choose the right solution. Join Ruben Spruijt as he provides opinions and great argumentation on such topics. Specific areas covered will also include:

•             Overview of desktop virtualization players

•             Analysis and evaluation of Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft VDI, Quest vWorkspace and VMware View

•             Advantages/disadvantages of the different VDI solutions, updated May 2012

•             Strategic questions you should ask to determine which solution fits the best

•             The performance impact on storage and how different storage technologies solve the ‘VDI + storage = deep impact'!
