I wonder how thin clients are doing with fitting into my network's POE. #E10_SESS107

U of AZ on VDI providing good video... "still working through it" - I read that as a pretty serious issue #E10_SESS107

U of AZ has a nice "classroom in a box" using thin clients. Very handy for Ad-hoc computer labs etc #E10_SESS107

VDI: once size does not fit all! Various solutions will be required based on various user needs. #E10_SESS107

U AZ 3 ESX boxes to run their vdi for 6000 users. #E10_SESS107

I tried to talk this VDI session into a Pano V Wyse debate, but they wouldn't go for it #E10_SESS107 :)

Getting ready to convene #E10_SESS107 Saving Money and Energy by Ditching PCs at #educause10 . I need a joke.
