Hier veröffentliche ich einen Gastbeitrag von Carsten Rachfahl (MVP Virtual Machine):
Vom 16 – 19 Mai 2011 fand in Atlanta wieder die TechED 2011 North America statt. Die TechED ist eine jährliche Großveranstaltung von Microsoft, auf der einerseits Neuerungen vorgestellt, sowie Wissen über die vorhandenen Produkte vermittelt und vertieft wird. Meist treten namhafte Redner, Entwickler und MVPs auf, die ihre Kenntnisse über das gesamte Spektrum der Microsoft Palette verkünden.
Da nicht jeder die TechED direkt besuchen kann, werden die Vorträge aufgezeichnet und online über “Channel 9” bereitgestellt. Die Videos sind dort aber nicht nur für TechED Teilnehmer, sondern für alle Interessierten kostenlos zum Ansehen und zum Download verfügbar.
Aus der Menge von Vorträgen habe wir nun einmal für Sie die Videos zum Gebiet der Virtualisierung herausgesucht. Die Vorträge geben einen hervorragenden Überblick über Themen, wie RemoteFX, VDI, Server Überwachungstools und vieles mehr.
Wir wünschen viel Spass beim Anschauen. [Aufgrund der Lokalisierung des Veranstaltungsortes in Atlanta (Nord Amerika) sind die Vorträge in Englisch]
Virtualization: State of the Union
· Speaker: Michael Schutz
· Year: 2011
· Event: Tech·Ed North America
· Duration: 1.15 h
Learn about Microsoft’s end-to-end virtualization strategy – from the desktop to the datacenter to the cloud. In this overview session we review how Microsoft virtualization products/technologies can be used to solve today’s core IT issues (reduce TCO, increase application availability, improve business continuity, establish sustainable computing),deploy new computing models (desktop virtualization),and build a foundation for a more dynamic IT environment (private cloud computing). Product overviews and demos cover Microsoft’s desktop (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, RemoteFX, App-V) and server (Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, Dynamic Memory, Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager) virtualization technologies.

App-V has always been a great way to deploy applications on RDS machines. The latest App-V release is compatible with Windows Server 2008 R2 and also has a “shared cache” feature added for use in VDI deployments. The shared cache feature allows VDI machines to share a single cache of sequenced applications,thereby reducing the on-disk footprint and centralizing the management of those applications. App-V’s shared cache coupled with its state management creates a compelling VDI story. This session is about using App-V with RDS and VDI deployments. The focus is on how to best deploy App-V on RDS and how to use the shared cache in a VDI deployment.
