But how do you unshackle desktops from hardware and OS constraints to create agile "anytime, anywhere, any device" mobile desktops with Citrix XenDesktop or VMware View? This session will profile how Florida Atlantic University migrated to high-performance, personalized virtual desktops using powerful user management solutions with "nonpersistent, stateless" VDI, thus managing workspaces, users, applications, and local resources such as printers more efficiently for greater IT staff productivity.
