Wanted to announce the coming of the VMware Express Virtualization Tour 2010 here on vDestination.com. Have you ever wanted to see some new VMware software and play with it without having to travel to San Francisco for VMworld, or downloading numerous eval copies of the software? Well, this is a good opportunity. VMware has deployed the Express Tour Truck that will display many of the new VMware features, specifically the VMware View desktop virtualization solution. Plus a chance to check out the WYSE Pocket Cloud, see this post.
Here is an explanation taken from VMware:
The VMware® Express mobile briefing center is capable of showing VMware products in action. On its tour around North America in 2010, the VMware Express will bring not only demos of VMware products to users and partners but also provide a detailed look at cloud computing for the desktop and server both today and tomorrow.
Inside the VMware Express, visitors will first experience the capabilities and flexibility of the VMware View™ desktop virtualization solution. The following demos highlight key VMware View capabilities addressing IT challenges, end-user requirements and key business objectives.
- Best User Experience
Highlighting the power of the PCoIP display protocol to deliver a rich user experience, perfectly adapted to the network connection and end-point device.
- Follow-Me Desktop
Enabling immediate access to desktops, applications and data while ensuring a consistent user experience across sessions and endpoint devices.
- Access Across Boundaries
Providing access to desktops, applications and data anytime, anywhere regardless of network availability.
- Windows 7 Migration
Reducing the costs and complexity associated with desktop and application migration.
