  41. 41. Reasons/Business Drivers<br />Adding value to the user – TCO/ROI was a bonus.<br />Providing mobile and “non-managed” access.<br />Enabling services for long distance learning students.<br />Reduce the complexity of the traditional desktop model.<br />Windows 7 Migration.<br />Service continuity.<br />
  42. 42. Solution Requirements<br />Support for, Windows, Mac and Linux clients. <br />User environment management.<br />Application Integration – MSI installs, Application Virtualization, etc.<br />Remote Desktop Services (terminal services) support.<br />Location aware – Ability to assign “resources” based on location.<br />Granular administration – Helpdesk roles, etc.<br />Easy scalability.<br />
  43. 43. Rollout<br />By the end of March 2011 we will (“should”) have the following;<br />Support for 2500 - 3000 virtual Windows 7 desktops.<br />Support for 1500 - 2000 Remote Desktop Services connections.<br />400 - 800 Windows 7 RemoteFX “ready” desktops.<br />Applications streamed using App-V (with shared cache).<br />Started the next phase of our NxTop (virtualcomputer.com) pilot with vWorkspace integration.<br />
  44. 44. Infrastructure<br />
  45. 45. What we are Achieving with vWorkspace<br />Dynamically assembled desktops at login.<br />Single image management.<br />Deployment of images across local storage (no SAN requirement).<br />Desktops as a Service (DaaS).<br />A University without walls!<br />
