If it is not virtual it is not cool appears to be the latest trend and that is before you even think about how lame it is not to have a smart phone or tablet. In this session we will examine the end to end network issues involved in keeping up with technology. Extended Overview: At a conference last week I was struck by the total lack of laptop PCs. Last year it was a sea of flipped up screens but this year it was all tablets and smart phones. As I networked with colleagues each one showed me their latest favourite app while the IT guys showed off the new VDI implementation. I met a networking guy quietly sobbing in the corner he relayed his worries over security, over network access and datacentre capacity. He and I discussed the issues and some ideas on how to resolve them. In the session "Virtual Reality Check" I will share some of the thoughts from that meeting.
