Thanks to all attended to make this the best event we’ve held in 19 Years! More highlights to follow
Microsoft released the public beta for WVD (Windows Virtual Desktop). In our industry there are periodically game changers and this is one to watch. If you are considering a shift to VDI, O365, hosted cloud or are already using these solutions, you may be wondering how to start.
Your organization may have already benefited from a long-term value-added solution through your on-prem VDI infrastructure and application virtualization to the end point.
Even if significant value has been realized, you have had some of the same underlying issues as most of your peers have had: data center sprawl, costly refreshes, system component incompatibility, lack of resources, cost over-runs, etc.
Well, the solution to these issues is here – VDI 2.0 has arrived. Microsoft has developed a delivery mechanism to provide Windows to your organization as a cloud-based service. Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) will deliver the Windows OS directly from the manufacturer.
Let Centrinet help you assess all of the benefits of moving to VDI 2.0 and Microsoft WVD. Contact us today to start this incredible journey; you can find out more at
Many months ago a few of my good friends and former associates at FSLOGIX were part of an acquisition by Microsoft. There was plenty of industry buzz about how they might fit FSLOGIX IP into the Microsoft master plan.
Turn the page to today with Microsoft’s announcement of the public preview of WVD. Centrinet has been planning well in advance of the public preview of WVD. Those of you who know my industry background know that I’m deeply rooted in virtualization and UX. Being in the manufacturer side of app/desktop virtualization, app layering and personalization, I can say with confidence that 2019 will be an exciting year because of what Microsoft is doing in WVD and Azure.
Most of my readers will likely agree, that in most cases, non-persistent virtual desktops are the way to go. But only if you can provide personalization for your users. Enter FSLOGIX!
In the past, you would need a third party profile management solution to provide this functionality to users. 2019 may be the year to re-evaluate those third-party solutions. We still have to wait and see how it unfolds. But if Microsoft stays on the track I see developing it will be compelling. Now Centrinet can align cloud offerings like Azure with on-premise solutions.
Are you ready to start investigating WVD? Check out our WVD Assessment service. My team at Centrinet is ready to help!
With daylight-saving time ends at week’s end (Nov 4 at 2am), we wanted to provide an overview of the issues that can occur with PVS delivered desktops and XenApp servers.
