"Over the past few years, OpenStack has gained popularity as a solution for controlling large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources," comments Mike Palin, CEO of Leostream. "Why not use it to lower the cost of deploying virtual desktops?"

The open source cloud operating system offers a feasible alternative to running desktops on dedicated hardware in the data center. Using OpenStack, IT has access to technology that can help mitigate the cost of VDI.

The 45-minute webinar will offer advice from Leostream's virtualization experts on how to deliver OpenStack VDI and DaaS at scale. Specific topics being covered include:

Why OpenStack is well suited to VDI and DaaS workloads
Key considerations when hosting VDI/DaaS in OpenStack
How to manage an OpenStack VDI deployment 

The session will also provide a behind the scenes look at the Leostream Connection Broker, which can be used to simplify large-scale hosted desktop deployments. During a product demonstration, Karen Gondoly, COO of Leostream, will highlight features for inventorying and power controlling existing OpenStack instances, provisioning new desktops from images, and more.

The live broadcast will take place on April 22, 2015 at 11:00AM EDT. Soon afterwards a replay of the event will be made available for immediate download. To register for the live event or to request the recording, please visit:
