End users have flexibility.<br />Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity<br />Provide continuous availability of desktops by making high availability and disaster recovery solutions more cost-effective, simpler, and more reliable.<br />Desktops as a Secure Service<br />Eliminate the need for moves, adds or changes. Allow third parties to access corporate applications in secure, controlled way.<br />Focused Solutions<br />Offshore development: giving developers control while keeping IP in data center. Platform migration: providing access to, e.g. from Vista to XP and vice versa. Application compatibility resolution. Mergers and acquisitions.<br />
  11. 11. Case Study: Huntsville Hospital<br />Business Challenges<br />Quickly and easily provision desktops to the users<br />Lower Cost of PC Management<br />Satisfy HIPAA requirements<br />Access desktop anytime, anywhere using multiple devices<br />Desktop Disaster Recovery<br />Solution<br />VMware View deployment ( Carts on wheels) <br />SAN Storage, Blade Servers (60 desktops/blade)<br />Why VMware View?<br />Payback period: 7 months for all 1600 desktops<br />Rapid provisioning: &lt;15 mins to provision<br />Desktop Business Continuity solution for doctors<br />Flexible secure access to sensitive data <br />“We’re in the process of opening a new emergency room at the hospital. Because of the critical nature of the computing environment, it has to be up and running extremely quickly. With VMware View, instead of having to buy 150 PCs and fully configure them, we’re going to roll out 150 thin clients, connect them to their pre-configured hosted virtual desktops, and be on our way.”<br />Tony Wilburn, <br />Network Specialist, <br />Huntsville Hospital<br />
  12. 12. Case Study: NEC<br />Business Challenges<br />Reduce operational costs<br />Increase security <br />Desktop tasks were time-consuming<br />Solution<br />VMware View and NEC Virtual PC Center <br />Why VMware View?<br />3 Support staff for 12,000 desktops<br />TCO cut by 46%, admin tasks reduced by 1/3<br />Software deployment time reduced from 3 months to a few hours<br />Zero data left on thin clients<br />20,000 desktops to be deployed by end of &apos;09<br />“While it once took not only a substantial amount of effort but also two or three months to deploy new software, it is now possible for this to be accomplished in a matter of just a few hours.”<br />Susumu ShimanoSr. Manager, MIS Division<br />
  13. 13. Why is the User-Experience so important?<br />Agenda:<br />VMware View Overview and Background<br />PCoIP – Why a new protocol?<br />Other elements of the View solution<br />Questions?<br />
  14. 14. The VDI user-experience is crucial!<br />Desktop virtualisation projects need to deliver these elements of the user-experience:<br />Easy-to-use connection interface at first log-on – the user should simply have to enter username and password <br />A user-experience that mirrors that of the full PC as closely as possible<br />The ability to view video, flash applications and embedded html content without noticeable degradation of image or performance<br />The ability to integrate other convergent devices, e.g. softphones, within the virtualised PC instance <br />Some VDI projects fail to gain acceptance within customer environments because they do not deliver these elements of the user-experience.<br />
  15. 15. So how does VMware overcome the “user challenge”?<br />
  16. 16. Why is the User-Experience so important?<br />Agenda:<br />VMware View Overview and Background<br />PCoIP – Why a new protocol?<br />Other elements of the View solution<br />Questions?<br />
