Well on Thursday 29th we had a great number of sessions at the MVUG. I mean it was totally awesome to see a number of the sessions and some great information being passed back to the community.
Now just a recap of the event logistics;
18:00 – 18:15: Arrivals
18:15 – 18:45: Simon Cleland (Unisys) & Colin Power (Slough Borough Council); Case study: Hyper-V RDP deployment at Slough Borough Council
[JZ] Brilliant session on a real world Hyper-V deployment. The good the bad and the ugly! It was a great insight to some of the great work around that Simon and his team had to come up with!
18:45 – 19:30: Aaron Parker (stealthpuppy); Application virtualisation – what is App-V?; A look inside an enterprise implementation
[JZ] Aaron had a fab session, and some brilliant demos to add. Really deep details on the deployments that he had worked with. What was really interesting on this session was the custom built reports that his team had developed for App-V…. truly great stuff!
19:30 – 20:00: Food
20:00 – 21:15: Justin Zarb (Microsoft); Application virtualisation – in-depth look at App-V architecture
[JZ] A roller coaster of emotions ! the ups, the downs! But very deep and interesting! hopefully my session gave a good overview for all people on deployment decisions.
21:15 – 21:30: Q/A and wrap up
Now, I believe Matt recorded the session so keep an eye on the MVUG website, however, I have redelivered this session in a different arena with Adam Shepherd for an MCS talks event! so if you want to see the content and a good understanding than please watch the following!
Some details of the event below
In the last of the current “MCS Talks Infrastructure Architecture” series, we will focus on application virtualization. We’ll begin by giving and overview of the Microsoft virtualization portfolio and where application virtualization sits. We’ll then discuss in what scenarios application virtualization can be used and some common misconceptions about its usage. The remainder of the session will discuss the different delivery methodologies for application virtualization, the possible architectures for deploying Microsoft App-V in the enterprise today and how to scale the infrastructure to meet different scenarios. We’ll be including considerations for both well connected and branch office environments, and your options for both internet based and standalone machines. Finally we’ll discuss the options for integrating with 3rd party electronic software distribution systems and the built in integration with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Release 2.
