Title: VDI: what does it mean, deploying challenges and will it save you money?

Time & Date: 12:20 – 12:50 on Wednesday 8th October

Theatre: Enterprise storage & Data Management

Speakers: Neil Stobart, director of sales engineering at Nexenta and Jack Watts, senior sales executive & cloud services specialist at Boston Limited

The educational seminar will focus on the technical challenges IT managers should consider when deploying storage in a Citrix XenDesktop VDI environment. It will offer insight into the use of a software-defined storage solution that liberates storage management from the underlying hardware, without sacrificing key features, performance, or functionality. Nexenta’s SDS solutions for XenDesktop offer the ability to control and manage the environment, with low total cost of ownership (TCO) and unlimited scalability.

Nexenta is also supporting Oktoberfest by handing out free beer between 16:00 and 17:00 on the first day of the show.
