At Quest we believe that desktop virtualization offers a cost-effective path to delivering Windows® 7 desktops. In this session Matt Evans explores the challenges associated to Windows® 7 migrations, providing best practices for using desktop virtualization technologies to enable both the migration and extension of Windows® 7 in the enterprise.

Matt will be providing guidance on:
Application Compatibility Issues
User Acceptance
End Point Device Support
User Profile Management
Windows Licensing
VDI/ TS/ Local VDI Sizing

Not all employees have the same desktop and application requirements, so no single desktop virtualization technology will work for all users. Quest vWorkspace lets you deploy a blended model – pairing the appropriate technologies to users based on their unique needs while keeping the average cost per virtual desktop to a minimum. In a single solution set, vWorkspace provides choice and flexibility to simplify the deployment and management of desktop virtualization technologies, allowing customers to choose from hosted Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Offline/Local VDI, Terminal Server/RD Session Host, Application Virtualization, and Blade PCs.
