Attendees will understand how to:

  • Deploy multiple desktops with VMware View 4 using linked clone technology in order to save space
  • Simplify desktop management by breaking the bond between your desktop operating system, desktop applications, and desktop hardware
  • Manage each independently, allowing you to effectively update, provision and control thousands of virtual desktops from a single console in minutes rather than a day

Dell EqualLogic PS Series iSCSI SAN arrays and VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) software offer an integrated, cost-effective solution for automated site recovery and testing. Learn how to:

  • Easily setup, implement, and document a Data Recovery plan
  • Demonstrate it works to management by performing a live test during production
