Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Live Broadcast Desktop virtualization isn’t quite as simple as it once sounded. Today there’s a raft of fundamental implementation decisions that need to be made based on varying levels of pay-back - save cash, reduce maintenance, maintain compatability, whatever.

But which one to choose for your target environment?

On Friday 26th November at 11:00 GMT we’ve got a few guys who know a few things about virtualization. Tony Lock from our chums Freeform Dynamics will join Ian Moulster from Microsoft and El Reg’s own effervescent Tim Phillips who will be in our studios to discuss the pros and cons of each.

The three of them are taking a deep look at the benefits of all desktop virtualisation methods and trying to ascertain which ones fit which environment.

If you join us, you’ll get to have your say too – you can ask these guys anything you want, so long as it’s broadly related to the subject obviously. They’ll all welcome your input on their view of where VDI makes sense, whether application streaming will benefit the Enterprise or if Session Virtualisation – or even if a Client Hosted Desktop is the answer.

We know you’ve all got your views, and no doubt experiences, on this, so come and share them with your friends at El Reg.

The event is 1hr long, it’s free to attend and we hope we’ve built it in such a way as to make sure you’re getting value for your time.

If that all tickles your fancy, you can register right here. If you can’t make it that day, you can still register and we’ll send you the recorded version of the show when it’s ready. ®
