Michel RothFor those of you familiar with RES Software, it should be no surprise that we have a strong heritage as a key component of a successful desktop virtualization deployment…first with RES Workspace Manager in 1999, later with RES Automation Manager in 2005 and now with the RES IT Store.

RES Software is also a strong supporter of the desktop virtualization community as a participant in a multitude of events including, but not limited to, BriForum, E2EVC and the various Citrix users groups. In staying with this mantra, we are also supportive of the great work conducted by Project VRC including their new State of ... READ MORE>>

Sean DonahueUnless you live under a proverbial rock, or are not in the tech industry, you know this past week was the 10th annual VMworld Convention…and what an insane show it was.

Sean DonahueI write this as I sit at Chicago O'Hare International Airport and wait for my seat belt extension (Note to self: eat less steak with customers). I just attended my first BriForum in Chicago. It was an interesting experience to say the least. BriForum – In With the In-Crowd Being a grizzled veteran of the tech conference circuit I am well trained in the “art of conventions” but BriForum is not your average tech conference. The attendees here are not interested in any “Marketechture.” They don’t want any “sales pitch” they want straight-to-the-heart, deep-in-the-weeds technical content.

Sean DonahueWhen I was young and foolish I ignored some of the biggest pot holes on the road to VDI salvation. But I am here to warn you against the mistakes I have made. 1 - Thou Shalt Not Be a Bandwidth Glutton Since Ethernet, and then fiber, became so prevalent and displaced slower speeds of ARCnet and Token Ring, we all too often take our bandwidth for granted. But when too many users are all accessing virtual desktops in a data center and using our Ethernet as their twisted pair, highway traffic jams can, and will, occur. And what is the result of binary traffic jams? Slow speeds for those users ... READ MORE>>
