My Sessions at Citrix Synergy 2010 in San Francisco
Citrix has finalized the program agenda for Synergy San Francisco on May 12 – 14, 2010. Yesterday they confirmed that they have scheduled Shawn Bass and me for the breakout session “Mastering User Profiles in Virtual Desktop Environments”. Session date-time/location is Thursday, May 13, 11:30 a.m. – 12:20 p.m. in Moscone West Convention Center – Moscone 2016-2018.
Here is the session description: When looking at user profiles, it’s about each user’s individual digital personality. As an IT professional, you better try not to reduce workspace flexibility, or your users will make your working life harder every day. When you only needed to deal with one desktop and one profile per user, things were relatively simple. But now, with remote desktops and applications delivered through a range of virtualization technologies, we are facing a very different situation. CTPs Benny Tritsch and Shawn Bass present an all-up view of the different user profile scenarios in multiple virtualization setups.
In addition to our breakout session, Shawn and I will also be speaking at Citrix Synergy Geek Speak Live! Our session will be about “How Graphics and Media Remoting Really Works”. Here is the description: It’s an urban legend that Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) shipped with Terminal Services has design shortcomings and scalability limits. Many IT professionals heard more than once that the Citrix ICA protocol is superior. Is that true? Are there ways to improve graphics remoting performance for common user scenarios? And what are Microsoft and Citrix doing to improve graphics remoting with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2? How good are RDP and ICA in dealing with GDI, GDI+, DirectX, OpenGL, Windows Presentation Foundation, Flash, Silverlight, videos and animations? Join virtualization experts Benny Tritsch and Shawn Bass in an in-depth look at how desktop, application and media remoting works. After attending his session, you will have no excuse for not knowing what RDP and ICA are good for.
Hope to see many of you in San Francisco.
