Take one part commodity server, one part free hypervisor, and one part Windows virtual machine. Add in the VDI-in-a-Box all-in-one virtual appliance, and in 30 minutes you can be serving dynamically generated virtual desktops over the best-in-class HDX remoting protocol for your users.
Slap that same hypervisor and VDI-in-a-Box virtual appliance on another server, point it at the first, and you have a highly available grid serving virtual desktops with built-in load balancing and intelligent connection brokering. And all this comes at a total cost of less than $500 per desktop!
Can it be that easy? Yes it can. VDI-in-a-Box from Citrix empowers Windows desktop administrators to bring the benefits of desktop virtualization and centralized management to desktops in small and medium businesses, corporate departments, and other such deployments.
In a technically oriented session at Synergy, the director of engineering for Citrix’s VDI-in-a-Box group and I will turn the raw ingredients of desktop virtualization into a VDI grid serving desktops for users in half an hour. As the lead architect of VDI-in-a-Box, I look forward to bringing this demo to you and hearing your feedback. To attend this session, register for Synergy today!
