Step 1: Proof of Concept Appliance

by Tony Dancona | 03.04.15

Desktop virtualization is one of the hottest buzz words in IT these days, and if you’re like a lot of organizations, you’re considering taking some of your infrastructure virtual. At Connection, we offer a number of services to get you started on that journey, from healthcheck services that test the overall efficiency of your infrastructure, to installation services when you’re ready to implement or upgrade. One of the most unique things we offer is our Proof of Concept (POC) Appliance, and I’d like to share a little bit about the benefits of using one of these as step one on your desktop virtualization journey.

VDI: Past and Present

Get Your Virtualization Engines Running Using Cisco UCS

by Tony Dancona | 02.17.15

There have been a lot of changes in desktop virtualization in the past year or so. Where once we were pretty happy if we could deliver a virtual desktop directly to a client that had specific software for receiving a virtual desktop, today we have so many more options. In reality, the VDI story has changed to the EUC story. VDI is certainly one of the important use cases (for users that are well-connected to the network), but end-user computing now addresses the other aspects, from a disconnected user to a modern application delivery system that gives us SSO access to apps, SAAS, content and desktops, through devices with a HTML5 browsers—all managed with an Enterprise Mobility Manager.

Cisco has developed a groundbreaking data center architecture in Cisco’s Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) and aligned closely with Microsoft in the market.
