Emerging Technologies that Enable Cloud-Scale Desktop Virtualization:
Driven by security concerns, flexible BYOD policies and operational complexity, organizations are mandating rapid VDI adoption, and managed service providers, telcos and enterprises must look for ways to deliver cloud-scale VDI for their users. Offering Desktops as a Service (DaaS) calls for a scalable and affordable business solution, and making VDI attainable requires large-scale deployments. In this session, GreenBytes Founder and CTO Bob Petrocelli and OneNeck IT Services Solutions Architect IV Thomas Lehrer will present a real-world success story in the utilization of emerging technologies that are making cloud-scale desktop virtualization deployments possible.
