The Future of Virtual Desktops: Turning Rich Desktops into a Ubiquitous Service

Desktone's VP Julian Weinstock to Present at SYS-CON's Virtualization Conference & Expo, June 23-24, in New York City

Does virtualization matter? Can virtual desktops go beyond the sum of the virtual parts? What is the business value and at what price?

As server virtualization continues to gain deeper traction and provide benefits beyond server consolidation, desktop virtualization is widely expected to follow a similar trajectory and address many of the challenges associated with enterprise desktops. Virtual desktops hold the promise of increased business agility at reduced complexity and cost, while providing high fidelity user experience at a lower carbon footprint. How is this promise delivered?

This session explores the current technology trends, business scenarios and economic imperatives that are shaping the future of virtual desktops, enabling new delivery and consumption models.
