The introduction of many new storage technologies and boutique vendors in the past few years has made it very difficult to choose the right products and architectures for best performance and manageable costs in VDI projects. Join Storage Switzerland's expert George Crump and Liquidware Labs CTO Jason Mattox as they head a discussion about new storage options, and outline the considerations that will go into making informed decisions about VDI storage build outs. At the end of this presentation you will have solid answers to: Are persistent or non-persistent architectures better for your organization? How do you tailor storage configurations for your use cases? How do you optimize the user experience for high performance? How do you continue to right-size and configure storage optimally as you scale?

Roaming profiles are a case study in good intentions. They try to capture user configurations, and they try to work everywhere. They just don't accomplish the job well. Judgment: #FAIL. But, you already know this. What you might not know is that an entire ecosystem of user management solutions have stepped up to fill the roaming profiles void. These solutions use different architectures with smarter features to deliver a better user experience. They're also much easier on you the IT administrator. Judgment: #WINNING. Do you want happier users, if only because happier users make for a happier IT pro? Join Greg Shields of Concentrated Technology and Jason E. Smith of Liquidware Labs as they discuss six ways these roaming profile-replacing User Management Solutions are turning a big #FAIL into an even bigger #WIN for businesses everywhere.

Liquidware Labs co-founder Tyler Rohrer explains how a singular vision early on drove the company to develop a desktop transformation methodology for the four pillars of a virtual desktop project: assessment, design, migration and validation. Tyler goes beyond theories to explain in very practical terms why each of these steps is required and builds upon each other and how each step is specifically supported by a Liquidware Labs solution. At the end of this webinar, you will understand how to: advance through a virtual desktop project with confidence, leverage real, highly accurate data about your company for planning and decision-making, ensure virtual desktop performance is on par with your physical desktops, manage costs in every phase, and perform optimization for easier desktop management over time.

Moving from a controlled desktop virtualization pilot into broader production can be tricky without having the right solutions in place. Adding and scaling the production environment with new users and new applications can also have a dramatic impact on system performance. Best practices dictate that desktop virtualization initiatives have end-to-end monitoring solutions in place right from the start which is the key to greater utilization and ROI from the VDI investment, not to mention preventing unplanned downtime. This webinar from experts at Liquidware Labs and SolarWinds will be moderated by VDI expert Doug Brown of DABCC and will walk through VDI monitoring strategies, best practices and use cases, including: Validation: that is creating a before/after picture of desktops to ensure that virtual desktops perform as well as physical desktops. Diagnostics: understanding where problems arise and getting to remediation quickly. Utilization: Being able to take full advantage of the capacity of your systems resources without negative impacts. Capacity Planning: Modeling changes to the environment and planning needed capacity well in advance of implementation.
