An IT Admin's Dream Come True: The Promise of Desktop Virtualization

MokaFive's Founder & CTO, John Whaley, to Present at SYS-CON's Virtualization Conference & Expo

It’s 4 am in the morning and you awaken to the sound of your pager blaring… Joe CEO calling from halfway around the world after his computer crashed during an investor presentation. Another beep… The east coast team is plagued with a zero-day worm that will cripple their PCs for a week. Yet one more beep… Due to licensing issues, all 500 employees at your company need an updated service pack ASAP. Sound like an IT administrator’s worst nightmare?

Join MokaFive co-founder and CTO, John Whaley, as he discusses desktop virtualization as a potential dream-come-true for IT administrators faced with demanding users and impending disasters. Whaley will cover how desktop virtualization provides solutions to accommodate a mobile workforce including secure remote access, ability to work online or offline, running complete operating systems and applications off a USB flash drive or iPod, and centrally-managed updates delivered simultaneously. Whaley will also talk about key security benefits to building and deploying virtual desktops including malware immunity, backing up to the cloud and automatic rejuvenation.
