- Gary Wroblewski

Students
Access to site licensed software
VDI is complex, expensive,
and delivers a worse user experience than desktops.
Microsoft TCO study: VDI is 11% more expensive than traditional PCs. One reason? Increased costs of Microsoft licensing!
Device independance?
-can you really use a desktop on a tablet/mobile?
Are virtual desktops a fad?
Over 90% of students bring their own computer to campus.
Can we build a robust, scalable, cost efficient infrastructure to provide access for our students

licensing costs and model
user experience
simplicity of use
server virtualization....clear win.
How does cloud computing impact Virtual desktops?
Cloud computing:
A standardized IT capability (services, software, or infrastructure) delivered via the Internet in a pay-per-use and self-service way
-Forrester Research, Inc.
Trends
Managing Virtual desktops
Customer perspectives
Problems to solve:
Customer expectations are being set by new platforms, and new delivery models for software:
App stores
Tablets and mobile devices
Web platforms like Google Apps
Current support and management processes do not accomodate VDI desktops well.
What type of virtual desktops make the most sense to host in the cloud?
Labs
Task workers
How do we ensure user experience:
latency
edge locations?
Systems and processes for managing desktops in the cloud
Application provisioning
Has anyone ever asked IT for a virtual desktop?
I just want it to work!
Why can't I use a "insert device here"?
User perception of virtual desktops
Vendor projects
Geared towards addressing more customer responsiveness....self service provisioning:
Citrix Xenapp
Vmware Horizon
Horizon is intended to establish a "cloud identity" and federate on-premise directory services between private and public clouds, so users can access apps from within an organization or from outside with a single identification. Access to those internal and SaaS-based apps would be controlled by IT.
