Optimizing Storage for VDI

The session was led by Tommy Armstrong (Vmware), Mike Slisinger and M.Vaughan Stewart (both from NetApp)
Tommy starts explaining the basics of VDI and introduces VDM2 (connection broker): with VDM2 we have:
· Automatic provisioning of desktop
· SSL encryption and Single Sign On
· USB redirection
· Active Directory and Secure ID integration
· High Availability and easy scalability
· DMZ support and Internet deployment
· Windows / MAC / Linux clients support
The session continues with the introduction of NetApp VDI facilitator that alleviate (a lot) the lengthy mass deployment timeframe: in the demo they deployed 100 VMs in about 2 minutes ( normally you can do a maximum of 5/10 VMs deployment per hour)
