Learn how Desktop Virtualization Technologies (DVT) provides a consistent Windows experience has enterprise-scalable solutions. Get the details on how toolbar and desktop options help define the experience and how the DVT experience follows the user from device to device.
Hear a discussion on scenarios for meeting legal and security requirements, increasing application compatibility, management benefits of desktop virtualization, and supporting BYOD scenarios.
Discover the benefits of user state virtualization and how it decouples user state from the operating system, provides a familiar environment on different PCs, enables use of documents when disconnected from the company network, and allows for disaster recovery.
See how user experience virtualization synchronizes (only) settings, allows granular control for application settings and OS settings between Windows 7 and Windows 8(.1), along with mixed desktop environments, traditional desktops, and virtual desktops. Find out more about mixed application types, desktop apps, virtualized apps, RemoteApp programs, and Windows Store apps.
Learn how application virtualization works, with anywhere productivity and access to applications on any device without installs. Find out how to accelerate deployment, and hear about faster provisioning of virtual applications on-demand and how to reduce application testing time.
Explore usage scenarios for RemoteApp programs and how they can enhance productivity. They are helpful in branch offices with limited local IT support, custom line-of-business programs, and "hot desk" "hoteling/kspace" environments. RemoteApp programs are also helpful for deployment of multiple versions of a program, particularly when installing multiple versions locally would cause conflicts.
Learn more about App-V components, like Management Server, Publishing Server, and Reporting Server.
Get the details on the virtual desktop infrastructure: Connection Broker Gateway Licensing, Web Access, and Host Servers and Storage. Look into deployment properties, and create and explore pooled desktops.
Find out more about Hyper-V and virtual desktops and how Hyper-V is the underlying host that makes VDI possible. Hear a discussion on the seamless experience with RemoteFX and on using checkpoints and dynamic memory with virtual desktops.
Explore the design and architecture guidelines for VDI infrastructure, how to use building blocks for scale-out and multi-site deployments, and details on HA for VDI/RDS. Find out how App-V can enhance flexibility for app management.
See some sample architectural VDI deployments: simple VM-based, HA VM-based, and scale-out VM-based.
Learn more about optimizing and selecting Windows 8.1 edition for VDI Memory, disk and display configuration, Windows 8.1 Services configuration, additional optimization, and performance tools for measuring performance.
Find out how to deploy VDI components: desktop VDI deployment with Server Manager, session deployment with Server Manager, quick deployment, and standard deployment.
Explore VDI management. Learn how to add Remote Desktop Services management tools and how to update the VM template and patching. Find out about updating pooled or personal virtual desktop collections and how to monitor VDI deployments.
