Windows 7 Migration and VDI – TBL’s June Lunch and Learn Summary
By Steve Glissman | Jun 16, 2011 | Blinky Fun, Insights
Harley Stagner led off TBL’s Lunch and Learn series with a discussion on virtual desktop infrastructure and how it relates to Windows 7 migration. As TBL Networks’ lead virtualization engineer (and only VCDX in Virginia) Harley arrived at the events in Richmond and Virginia Beach armed with a whiteboard, laptop and the promise (which he kept) of no PowerPoint!
Harley began by reviewing the three distinct components of the desktop – the OS, applications and user data. From there, he discussed how operational efficiencies can be gained by separating these individual components in a virtual desktop environment. Finally, Harley provided a live demo of entitling VMware ThinApp packages to a desktop pool using VMware View 4.6.
Thank you to everyone in Richmond and Hampton Roads who came out for our June discussion. We had a lot of great audience participation and some very insightful questions. Our July Lunch & Learn topic is “Business Video – Not Just For Teleconferencing,” and the discussion will be led by TBL’s Patrick Tredway.
