Deep Dive on Virtualization Technology - Server, Desktop, Application, and Storage Virtualization

This is an all day virtualization event for the North East US (New England) Region. We will have speakers from all over the country coming here to present mostly 200-400 level content on the hottest topic of the year. We will have a 360 degree look at virtualization technology as a whole then throughout the day dive deep into many of those technologies. Pick a platform, pick a technology or mix and match. Topics will include (but not limited to): Virtualizing… Servers, Desktops, Applications, Folders, Storage, Files and many others. We will cover Security, Performance, Management, Architecture, Implementation as well as Best Practices for all areas. Help your user group community and get an education while you are at it. 

 

"Hands-on" and "Experience-on" Sessions

Some breakout sessions will be designated as "Hands-on" or "Experience-on" Sessions; these sessions will be limited to a very small number of participants due to space constraints.  "Hands-on" means that you will be learning skills by making changes on your own equipment, and may be able to take the result home.  "Experience-on" means that you will be learning skills by using your equipement in conjunction with session provided equipment; your equiptment will remain unchanged.  You will need to bring your own laptop, and additional requirements may exist in certain of these breakouts (for example the laptop might need to be running Windows 7).  Additional information regarding these breakouts, as well as instructions for signing up for them, will be available closer to the event.

 

Recording

Many sessions will be recorded and placed on the web site for later viewing/listening.  With five simultanious sessions and this lineup there is no doubt you will miss something!  Access to the recordings will require a small subscription to help defray the hosting cost.  Recordings will not be available until at least three days after the event.

 

Simulcasting to Remote Sites

We also plan to simulcast live the keynote, lunch session, closing session, plus the MPR-B room breakout session from each period to certain remote locals.  The New York Enterprise Windows User Group is committed to host a remote site in New York City for this event, and the St Louis Virtualization Group is committed to host a remote site in St Louis.  Others groups have also expressed interest, so if your group is interested please contact Dan Stolts immediately.   Live simulcasting will not be available to individuals, only groups.

 

Food

For those attending at the primary location, we have you covered with Coffee in the morning, plus Lunch and Beverages are provided with your registration.

 

Recommended Audiences

Technology Executives, IT Managers, IT Professionals, CIO, CTO, IT Directors, Solution Architects, Software Developers, Technical Decision Makers, Developers.  If you can spell virtualization, you will be interested!

Streaming - The Key to "Just-in-time" Computing
Brian Duckering
Join Symantec's Senior Product Manager, Brian Duckering, as he explains the importance and techniques of streaming technology.
 
There are so many ways to access a Windows desktop these days, both physical and virtual, but the varying demands of each user group make it difficult and costly to plan for all of the locations, methods and flexibility that users require today.  When application streaming is well deployed, all users can leverage a simple and common base image, yet instantly have the applications they need, when they need them, in any physical or virtual environment.  Learn how to leverage application streaming, not just for instant, on-demand delivery, but also to create proactive license management that could save money by automating the license accounting and recovery processes.

The Impact of Logical and Physical Fragmentation in a Virtual Environment (Raxco)
Bob Nolan
Fragmentation is a normal byproduct of the Windows file system, but there is a great deal of misunderstanding with respect to what it really is and its impact. This presentation debunks the myths, describes the differences between logical and physical fragmentation,  and explains the impact both have on real and virtual system performance. We examine the implications of fragmentation in a virtual environment where there is competition for finite resources between guests, and between the guests and the host. The presentation addresses issues with both ESX and Hyper-V virtualization platforms and offers solutions to minimizing the potential for conflicts and maximizing virtual I/O throughput.

The Economics of Desktop Virtualizatin
Doug Lane
Based on work with IDC, Join Senior Director Doug Lane of Virtual Computer as he dives into the art of cost and savings analysis when it comes to Virtualization projects.
 
Organizations of all sizes are now realizing the many cost-saving benefits of server virtualization, but for many the business case for desktop virtualization is less clear.  The total cost of ownership (TCO) advantages of desktop virtualization versus traditional approaches are very real, but it unlike server virtualization it has little to do with hardware costs and everything to do with operational efficiencies and improved security posture.  In "The Economics of Desktop Virtualization," Doug Lane of Virtual Computer will discuss the key TCO considerations when exploring a desktop virtualization initiative, including an in-depth review of the traditional PC management approaches, server-based virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) models, and emerging client-side desktop virtualization technologies.

Windows Server 2008 R2 Virtualization
Blain Barton
With Hyper-V, it's easier than ever to take advantage of the cost savings of virtualization through Windows Server 2008 R2. Optimize your server hardware investments by consolidating multiple server roles as separate virtual machines running on a single physical machine, efficiently run multiple different operating systems in parallel, on a single server, and fully leverage the power of x64 computing.  In this session we will look at Hyper-V and some of the real world way to organize your Hyper-V implementation.  We will take a look at the interface and see some of the many, many ways Hyper-V can be used to reduce cost and increase efficiency.

Application Virtualization: How to maximize desktop stability
With Symantec's Brian Duckering.
 
A huge percentage of help desk calls can be traced back to applications either behaving badly or conflicting with other apps and/or the base OS.  Application virtualization can eliminate these conflicts by containing files and registry entries in separate containers.  But isolation is not enough – apps still need to interact with each other, as designed.  Done properly, the benefits of application virtualization extend from reduced pre-deployment testing, to instant remediation, and even simplified OS migration.  Learn how to assess and implement this high ROI solution to drive down helpdesk calls.

Staying Secure While Going Virtual
Kevin Amorin
For many organizations, improved endpoint security is a key business driver for deploying desktop virtualization solutions.  Virtualization technology opens the door to a variety of advanced security techniques that simply aren't possible using traditional operating system deployment methods.  At the same time, care must be taken to avoid disturbing the effective operation of existing desktop security measures such as antivirus agents, which were not developed with today's one-to-many virtual desktop deployment models in mind.  Kevin Amorin of Virtual Computer will explore optimal approaches for deploying existing desktop security technologies in virtual desktop environments, highlight some of the new advanced security capabilities that desktop virtualization enables, and outline the steps that virtualization vendors must take to avoid introducing new points of vulnerability in the virtualization layer.  Kevin is a CISSP and teaches several courses on information security at Northeastern University.

Perceived Performance in a Virtual World
Tim Mangan
Tim Mangan created the concept of "Perceived Performance" in his ground-breaking whitepaper of the same name in 2003.  That work, which looked at the impact, causes, and measurement of performance in a remote world (then Terminal Services/Citrix) is now updated to include the effects of Server/Desktop Virtualization and new technology in general.
 
In this session, you will learn how performance issues affect users perception of performance in ways that the "traditional texts" on performance do not address.
 
Then we will review the latest test results for performance impacts of using Hyper-V, XenServer, and Esx/VSphere for Terminal Server and VDI loads.

MicrosoftMicrosoft XP Mode
In this session, Microsoft's own Blain Barton will explore the Windows 7 add-on feature known as "XP Mode".

 

Although this is not an official hands-on lab In this hands on lab, you may bring your Windows 7 Machine (Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate only) and Blain will walk you through the process of setting up windows XP mode and getting it working on your computer.  In order for XP-Mode to work, your computer must have hardware virtualization built in.   We will have a DVD with all the files you need so you just need to bring your Windows 7 LAPTOP.  (Laptops only please). 

 

Note: We are unable to set up tables or power in this room to support this as a "hands-on" lab.  So get here early for a seat near power, or with a full battery if you want to "do" instead of "watch".

PerfectDiskThe Impact of Logical and Physical Fragmentation in a Virtual Environment
Fragmentation is a normal byproduct of the Windows file system, but there is a great deal of misunderstanding with respect to what it really is and its impact. This presentation debunks the myths, describes the differences between logical and physical fragmentation,  and explains the impact both have on real and virtual system performance. We examine the implications of fragmentation in a virtual environment where there is competition for finite resources between guests, and between the guests and the host. The presentation addresses issues with both ESX and Hyper-V virtualization platforms and offers solutions to minimizing the potential for conflicts and maximizing virtual I/O throughput.

Virtual ComputerThe Economics of Desktop Virtualization

Based on work with IDC, Join Senior Director Doug Lane of Virtual Computer as he dives into the art of cost and savings analysis when it comes to Virtualization projects.

Organizations of all sizes are now realizing the many cost-saving benefits of server virtualization, but for many the business case for desktop virtualization is less clear.  The total cost of ownership (TCO) advantages of desktop virtualization versus traditional approaches are very real, but it unlike server virtualization it has little to do with hardware costs and everything to do with operational efficiencies and improved security posture.  In "The Economics of Desktop Virtualization," Doug Lane of Virtual Computer will discuss the key TCO considerations when exploring a desktop virtualization initiative, including an in-depth review of the traditional PC management approaches, server-based virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) models, and emerging client-side desktop virtualization technologies.

Virtual ComputerStaying Secure When Going Virtual

For many organizations, improved endpoint security is a key business driver for deploying desktop virtualization solutions.  Virtualization technology opens the door to a variety of advanced security techniques that simply aren't possible using traditional operating system deployment methods.  At the same time, care must be taken to avoid disturbing the effective operation of existing desktop security measures such as antivirus agents, which were not developed with today's one-to-many virtual desktop deployment models in mind.  Kevin Amorin of Virtual Computer will explore optimal approaches for deploying existing desktop security technologies in virtual desktop environments, highlight some of the new advanced security capabilities that desktop virtualization enables, and outline the steps that virtualization vendors must take to avoid introducing new points of vulnerability in the virtualization layer.
