Pushing the Limits of Cloud Service Providers to Enable On-demand Virtual Desktops
Monday, March 5, 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Presenter: Jim Curtin, CEO of Virtual Bridges

Cloud computing is expanding in almost every direction; however, few have had the impact that we are seeing with regards to the management and provisioning of virtual desktops. Ideally suited for cloud services, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) allows programs, applications, processes and data from remote PCs to be stored and managed from a central location. The result is reduced costs, improved productivity, enhanced security and ultimately a significant increase in demand for cloud-based services. Deployed to customers in 2011, the combination of IBM’s Cloud Service Provider Platform and Virtual Bridges VERDE is providing a powerful service provider-ready solution that not only provisions the cloud infrastructure but also the integrated virtual desktop ‘workload’ on top of it for an immediate, integrated solution that delivers impressive results.

The Next Frontier: On-demand Virtual Desktop Services for Cloud Service Providers
Tuesday, March 6, 2:30 p.m. – 2:50 p.m.
Presenter: Leo Reiter – Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Virtual Bridges

While 2010 was the Year of the Cloud, 2011 took it to the next level - launching desktop management and provisioning in the cloud or Desktops-as-a-Service (DaaS). Using second generation Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), which is ideally suited for the cloud, programs, applications, processes and data from remote PCs can now be stored and managed from a central location. Together IBM Cloud Service Provider Platform and Virtual Bridges VERDE have eliminated the headaches and are delivering a powerful service provider-ready solution that not only provisions the cloud infrastructure but also the integrated virtual desktop workload on top of it for an immediate, integrated solution. In addition, we will demo the integration with industry leading load balancers – F5, which provide critical VDI load balancing and added security features. This session will show how on-premises or cloud hosted desktop virtualization is being used by global cloud service providers to drive results.

IBM and Virtual Bridges maintain a strong partnership, with Virtual Bridges VERDE serving as the cornerstone of IBM’s Virtual Desktop for Smart Business (VDSB) 6.0 offering, designed specifically for enterprises. IBM turned to VERDE for its cost effective approach to provisioning, managing, updating and securing PC environments as well as its broad coverage of both Linux and Windows desktops. VDSB customers enjoy the latest VERDE enhancements, including a new cache I/O storage optimizer that removes CAPEX hurdles long associated with VDI deployments, and endpoint management that integrates with IBM BigFix.
