Desktop Virtualization

Desktop Virtualization Technical Briefing with Citrix, Microsoft, AppSense and more key ISV’s

Learn the difference between just throwing in a VDI solution, and designing a true Desktop & Application Delivery Architecture. Learn why most VDI projects fail, and the best practices that will show a solid ROI to your CFO/CIO.

Don’t try to bolt-on a Frankenstein solution, – come hear from our team of technical experts. You’ll also experience a great networking opportunity to meet your peers, and learn from their projects as well. Some questions we will help you answer…

* Why is desktop virtualization different than server virtualization
* Is VDI the same thing as Desktop or Application Delivery (hint: it is not)
* What architecture/designs are available
* What are the SAN requirements for Desktop Delivery
* How do you handle user profiles
* How is printing different with virtual desktops or Terminal Services
* When do you use Terminal Server based Application Delivery versus Desktop Delivery (or both)
* What licensing is needed from each manufacturer to implement a solid desktop virtualization architecture

A solid line up of technical presenters; from Microsoft, Citrix, AppSense, and AGSI coming to a city near you…

Why Offsite Backup? Free 30-Day Trial
Not only is it difficult and costly for business to achieve secure, reliable and guaranteed backups in-house, it also intrudes on your businesses core activities, and the majority of staff treat it as a low priority.

The data is seamlessly transferred using its pre-defined scheduler, whilst being confined to fixed, secure connections to remove any risk to your company’s valuable information.
Once implemented Desktop Network Systems and Safe Data Storage Ltd ensures complete data security.
Your data is encrypted both locally and while in transmission across the Internet to our secure bank of highly specified data storage units. The data remains your property at all times.

An allocated security code allows only you, the holder access to your data.

Once the backup has been received by our first set of storage units, a copy is immediately transmitted via a secure link to our second bank of servers in a separate location, where it is backed up on disk.

            All data is fully encrypted prior to leaving your computer.
            Transfer is secure and our servers are protected using the latest technologies.
            Our small software application runs on your computer.
            No training or extensive IT knowledge necessary.
            Wizard guided backup configuration.
            Automated Schedule Plus "backup & shutdown" facility.

            We will honestly advise you as to what data you need to backup.

            Unlimited technical support.
            Comprehensive reporting.
            Backup & restore 24/7.
                        Web management facilities.
