Desktop as-a-Service: Can an OpenStack architecture stack up for VDI?

For Feb. we have an interesting topic - our session is sponsored by Virtual Bridges and Dell. Join us for a lively conversation on how VDI workloads can harness the power of the cloud. Join the team from Virtual Bridges, industry-recognized innovators and game-changers in the VDI space, and learn how they are contributing to, and leveraging, OpenStack technology.

Our primary speaker will be Jon Senger - the chief strategy officer of Virtual Bridges. Jon is responsible for shaping the company’s vision, identifying new market opportunities and enhancing the company’s competitive position. An expert technologist, Jon joins Virtual Bridges after spending the last six years at Dell where he served as an enterprise architect and core engineering lead, and finally leaving the company as the CTO of Emerging Technologies where he worked in the office of the CIO developing innovative strategies to support the company’s cloud computing, virtualization and BYOD programs.

Reminders: a lite dinner and soft drinks will be provided ~ 6:15pm courtesy of Virtual Bridges, and we will kick off the sessions ~ 6:30pm.

    I was really looking forward being there, but it didn't work out. I'm sure it was great and I look forward to watching how things have progressed!! Looking forward to more comments, if people would like to share.

    Good questions tonight - outside the norm re components in the stack, user experience, performance issues for desktops in the cloud.
