#VMWorld 3rd Breakout session: #PAR3241 - VMware Horizon View: Finally the Replacement for Server-Based Computing

Hello all,
Third session of the partner day. speakers Edwin Waijdema and Spencer Pitt
The description of the session is (cited)

There's been an ongoing debate for many years about the relative merits of legacy Server-Based Computing (SBC) solutions versus more sophisticated and modern virtual desktop (VDI) options such as VMware Horizon View. Arguments about cost, complexity, reliability and user experience continue to rage - is SBC 'good enough' for some use cases or is the extra expense of VDI justified by the better service and flexibility it can provide? Well, we think the latest technical advances in VMware Horizon View 5.2 finally tip the balance firmly in favour of VDI. Improvements in TCO and reductions in capital expenditure due to more efficient use of storage and support for previously 'forbidden' technologies in the VDI space such as Integrated Communications/VoIP and multimedia, mean that 'good-enough' for SBC may no longer be good-enough. Come and join us and one of our Partners as we share the very latest best practice in this area and show how VDI with VMware Horizon View has gained the upper hand over SBC, allowing organizations adopting it to gain a competitive advantage with lower levels of complexity and cost than ever thought possible previously.



Hope that 2014 will be the real year of Horizon View!
Cheers
