Speaking at Microsoft TechEd and at BriForum
It’s a typical spring with many conferences both in the US and in Europe. In about a week I will be on my way to Citrix Synergy in San Francisco where Shawn Bass and I are invited to deliver two technical sessions. For details check out my blog article from January. But there is more. In May there is Citrix Geek Speak Live! in Zurich (Switzerland), CUGTech in Olso (Norway) and a joined expert training class with Shawn Bass in Malmo (Sweden) on my list. Only recently I was accepted to be speaking at Microsoft TechEd in New Orleans (June 7 – 10) and at BriForum in Chicago (June 15 – 17). Lots of great events and I feel honored to get the opportunity to contribute.
Here are the abstracts of my TechEd and BriForum sessions:
TechEd Session VIR316, Wednesday, June 9, 3:15 PM – 4:30 PM – Remote Desktop Session Host versus Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Smackdown: With Windows Server 2008 R2 the traditional session virtualization scenario delivered through Remote Desktop Services (formerly Terminal Services) is expanding its role to provide an extensible platform for a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). VDI enables Windows 7 desktop environments to run within centralized Hyper-V servers. But which of the two is the solution of choice? In this session, Benny Tritsch, Remote Desktop Services MVP, introduces you to the two options, highlighting pros and cons in an unbiased manner. With real-world examples and demonstrations he gives you expert guidance on when to use what.
BriForum Session (with Shawn Bass) – Remoting Protocols Turned Inside Out: RDP, ICA, HDX, PCoIP and EOP represent a selection of popular remoting protocols. But how are they different from each other and what does this mean for the users? What are the best methods when remoting standard graphics and multimedia output formats? Join presentation virtualization geek Shawn Bass and computer graphics expert Benny Tritsch in an in-depth look at how graphics and media remoting really works.
BriForum Session (with Kevin Goodman and Shawn Bass) – Profile Streaming versus Profile Segmentation: Kevin Goodman will represent profile streaming and Benny Tritsch will represent profile segmentation. Both will passionately debate the pros and cons of the two profile management concepts. Shawn Bass is the brave neutral moderator, preventing the two others attacking each other from a profile brawl.
