At Citrix Synergy, CitrixTV recorded a number of video interviews where Fujitsu were ‘extremely proud’ to announce a complete end-to-end solution, utilizing Fujitsu technologies along with Citrix, Microsoft, AppSense, ThinPrint, ChangeBASE to put together a ‘best in class offering’.

Virtualization Review: Why Myths Should Be Left To The Gods

January 5, 2011

Simon Rust, VP Technology, AppSense, has written a very interesting article as part of his series on Virtualization Review looking at some of the myths surrounding Desktop Virtualization and how in reality, when VDI is designed, implemented and managed correctly, these are in fact just myths and should not stop us from adopting desktop virtualization technologies.

In his article, Simon dispels the following 4 myths:

Myth 1: VDI is storage-heavy and therefore cost-heavy.

Myth 2: VDI is too hard.

Myth 3: Virtualization and the cloud are one and the same.

Myth 4: VDI is merely an extension of Server Based Computing (SBC).

You can read the article over on Virtualization Review here.

Hope you enjoy, and am keen to hear your thoughts.

Cheers
