Citrix VDI in a box demo day
There has been a lot of talk on here about Citrix VDI in a box (formally Kaviza) in the past few weeks and using my experience of it I have tried to help anyone with any questions they have.
In the past we have however run a ‘demo day’ here in Abingdon (Oxfordshire) for a small number of schools and I was wondering if people would be interested in me getting hold of a few of our contacts and arranging another one?
We are hoping to expand our VDI grid in the next few weeks using a second server which will be using SSDs instead of HDDs however until I get it working I wouldn’t want to hold any presentation.
That pretty much rules out doing anything this holiday but how would people feel about us holding it during term time or waiting to the June Holiday? (4th – 8th June).
As far as I can tell the best way to go would be-
Live Demos (as many as possible)
Get a thin client vendor on site (should be able to do)
Get a Citrix guy on site (should be able to do)
Get a VAR on site (might be able to do)
Maybe a little VDI licencing workshop (would need someone who knows someone to make this happen)
We could probably accommodate up to 20 people in our meeting room for presentations and I think a program from 10am – 3pm should work well.
So what do we all think?
