Atlantis Computing CTO Chetan Venkatesh and Expert Jim Moyle Debate the future of VDI with Brian Madden and Gabe Knuth

(July 18, 2011)
DMN Newswire--2011-7-18--
Atlantis Computing, the leader in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) storage and performance optimization solutions, today announced that Chetan Venkatesh, CTO and founder of Atlantis Computing and Jim Moyle, Lead Northern Europe Solutions Consultant for Atlantis Computing, will deliver four sessions at BriForum Chicago.  

The Atlantis ILIO software virtual appliance allows organizations to slash the amount and cost of storage for VDI deployments, boosts desktop performance to ensure user acceptance and allows security to be deployed without impacting server density. The solution is easily deployed by Citrix, VMware, and Quest channel partners into existing Citrix XenDesktop, VMware View, and Quest vWorkspace deployments to either support more users on the same infrastructure, or address current scalability and performance issues. To learn more about Atlantis Computing solutions visit us at booth #6.

Atlantis Computing Experts to Address the Obstacles and Solutions to Overcoming VDI Challenges

- Brian & Chetan's VDI-in-the-Cloud Argument (One Year Later)
Chetan Venkatesh and Brian Madden debate the future and adoption of VDI vs. client-based desktop virtualization and what percentage of desktops will ultimately run on VDI and client devices.

- Windows IOPS Deep Dive: What IOPS Means to You and Why You Can't do VDI Without Knowing About Them
Jim Moyle presents new test data establishing how critical IOPS are to Windows 7 virtual desktops performance to dispel some of the myths behind sizing VDI storage.

- Does It Make Sense and Save Time Migrating to VDI by P2Ving Your Existing Systems? 
Jim Moyle and Gabe Knuth discuss the idea of converting existing PCs to virtual PCs as a first step to VDI migration before tackling all the required components of the stateless desktop.

- A Single Handheld Device for Everything: The Nirvana Phone?Heaven or Hell?
Jim Moyle and Steve Greenberg will discuss the convergence of devices, the Citrix Receiver and whether users will adopt a single mobile device connected to VDI as their desktop.

BriForum is the only technical event that is 100 percent dedicated to desktop virtualization and VDI. The event is a unique opportunity for Atlantis Computing experts, top-notch industry analysts, bloggers and best-selling authors to talk honestly and openly about the future of desktop virtualization, the technical challenges they faced in real-world deployments, how they addressed them, and what worked  or did not work. 

Last year Brian and I had a great debate with the BriForum audience about the future of desktop virtualization and whether the majority of desktops would end up running on VDI or client devices, said Chetan Venkatesh, CTO and founder, Atlantis Computing. A year later, and with more data points, I look forward to discussing the direction that desktop virtualization is taking.

Even though Windows 7 migration projects drive many VDI deployments, many customers are still unaware of the incredible amounts of storage needed to achieve the equivalent desktop performance of a physical PC, said Jim Moyle, Lead Northern Europe Solutions Consultant, Atlantis Computing. At BriForum, I will be presenting new test data that illustrates the relationship between storage throughput and desktop performance and I will explain how to size VDI storage to achieve optimum desktop performance.

The Nirvana phone concept leverages the combination of a smartphone that docks with a full size keyboard and display to access a Windows 7 desktop and applications running in a datacenter on a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, said Jim Moyle, Lead Northern Europe Solutions Consultant, Atlantis Computing. With VDI, the performance and user experience is not limited by the phones CPU, memory and local storage.
