Webinar Series: Introducing VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure


Virtual Desktop Infrastructure provides desktop environments as an enterprise hosted service. It provides isolated PC environments that are centrally located and managed in the data center. This enables users to be provisioned with desktop resources on demand and also helps protect against the loss of intellectual property (IP) as it is used externally by contractors and other firms. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure allows administrators to provide PC environments with all the benefits of virtualization: central management, hardware consolidation, and resource flexibility. Many firms in the financial, call center, off shore development and disaster recovery fields are already benefiting from this technology.

VMware has created the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Alliance, a technology partnership with leading hardware, software and service providers to build virtual desktop offerings on VMware virtual infrastructure software. In this Webinar series we will feature key partners from the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Alliance to demonstrate the joint solution and review the feature and benefits.

Event : Simplify Remote Desktop Management with VMware & Citrix
Date and Time : Thursday, June 1, 2006
10:00 am, Pacific Daylight Time

Description : With enterprises facing an ever increasing distributed end-user population, Citrix and VMware believe that virtual desktop infrastructures will be an important deployment model. By employing the Citrix Access Infrastructure in conjunction VMware VDI, enterprises that now require virtualized OS infrastructures for their remote desktop users can easily deliver and manage those desktops.

Event : Effective Desktop Disaster Recovery with VMware & Route 1
Date and Time : Tuesday, June 6, 2006
10:00 am, Pacific Daylight Time

Description : As companies adopt business continuity programs that also encompass desktop environments, the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure will be a key initiative. Route1 and VMware enable organizations to simply and cost-effectively deploy the combination of virtualized environments built with VMware’s Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and Route1’s SAFE Response solution. Route1’s SAFE (Simplified Access For Emergency) Response Solution for proportional business continuity utilizes the Route1 MobiKEY to lessen the operational impact of potential worker quarantines and other disruptions resulting from man-made and natural causes. MobiKEY provides simple and secure remote access to your computer’s applications, files, and network resources, from wherever you are. The MobiKEY is powered by Route1’s core delivery platform – MobiNET which is a highly secure, global managed service that manages users’ identity, and the services which they are authorized to access.

Event : VMware & Leostream Secure Off-Shore Development
Date and Time : Tuesday, June 13, 2006
10:00 am, Pacific Daylight Time

Description : Off-shore development provides a cost effective option for many enterprises that was not previously available. Although lower in costs, this software delivery method also poses its own challenges associated with providing secure development environments to large teams of off shore developers. Attend this session to learn how Leostream’s Virtual Desktop Controller with VMware virtual infrastructure enables virtual desktop deployments to successfully scale to thousands of users. It enables end-users to log on via a web browser, be authenticated against Active Directory, and then automatically connected via RDP to the appropriate virtual machine-hosted Windows Desktop system.

Event : Streamline Your Outsourced Support Operations with VMware & Propero
Date and Time : Tuesday, June 20, 2006
10:00 am, Pacific Daylight Time

Description : Virtual Desktop Infrastructure is a secure way to provide desktop environments for transaction workers such as call centers and order processing, particularly for outsourced and off-shored environments. Many call center operators do not need the local flexibility of a thick client and are typically using the computer for one single application. By serving up a server hosted desktop, a company can easily refresh the application or desktop to these professionals centrally. Propero’s workSpace for VMware provides seamless, secure access, with full single sign on, to personalized virtual desktops and virtual applications from any location with a browser. In addition, workSpace’s dynamic load-balancing and session management features ensure virtual machines consume server resources only when they need to, keeping costs low and simplifying resource management.

Event : VMware & IBM Simplify Desktop Management for Branch Office Operations
Date and Time : Tuesday, June 27, 2006
10:00 am, Pacific Daylight Time

Description : IBM’s Virtualized Hosted Client Infrastructure (VHCI) brings together all the benefits and control of a standalone desktop to end users while providing centralized management and increased security and control for the IT administrator. An ideal solution for remote employees or branch office environments, IBM leverages VMware virtual infrastructure software to help improve IT department efficiencies by optimizing resource utilization, as well as increase end user performance by dynamically provisioning resources to meet the performance needs of each virtual hosted client machine. This enables companies to support more users with fewer resources, while offering the best possible desktop experience from virtually anywhere and on virtually any device.

Event : Ensuring Sarbanes-Oxley compliance with VMware & Wyse
Date and Time : Tuesday, July 11, 2006
10:00 am, Pacific Daylight Time

Description : Sarbanes-Oxley legislation requires that organizations have internal controls as they relate to financial reporting. One such area for this control is access to the financial systems and data. With the Wyse and VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure solution, organizations are able to host and stream complete computing environments from within the data center, allowing access through the Wyse thin computing solutions. This provides enhanced manageability and security for our enterprise customers of their financial information and systems.

Event : Cost Effective Solutions for Educational Institutions with Ardence & VMware
Date and Time : Tuesday, July 18, 2006
10:00 am, Pacific Daylight Time

Description : Educational organizations face particular financial challenges when approaching technology implementations. As public sector entities, finding a combination cost effective and best of breed can oftentimes prove difficult. The Ardence Desktop Edition in conjunction with VMware virtual infrastructure allows administrators to stream virtual machine images to diskless desktops from network storage. This breakthrough in desktop management and software distribution radically lowers the total cost of desktop ownership. IT administrators are able to provision virtual desktops from private or shared images over the network in seconds, providing unprecedented scalability, flexibility and responsiveness.
