Virtualisation: State of the Union

An opportunity to learn about Microsoft’s end-to-end virtualisation strategy – from the desktop to the datacenter, to the cloud. In this overview session we’ll review how Microsoft virtualisation products/technologies can be used to solve today’s core IT issues (reduce TCO, increase application availability, improve business continuity, establish sustainable computing); deploy new computing models (desktop virtualisation); and build a foundation for a more dynamic IT environment (private cloud computing). Product overviews and demos cover Microsoft’s desktop (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, RemoteFX, App-V) and server (Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, Dynamic Memory, Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager) virtualisation technologies.
