Replacing a vWorkspace VDI at the University of York – Pritpal Rehal, EUC Specialist/Architect, Desktop & Printing Group, University of York

What happens when a product gets shut down and you have to replace it

This was the challenge that the University of York have faced as Dell decided to cease further development of its vWorkspace product, a desktop virtualisation (VDI) tool it acquired along with Quest back in 2012.

This will be a discussion on the journey that the University of York took, what plans they put in  place, product and funding options to replace Dell vWorkspace VDI at the University with an alternative solution

Pritpal explores:

  • How VDI has changed?
  • How do you deal with the here and now, Cloud  and future of the platform?
  • Workspace seems to be the buzz word in Virtual Desktops and Mobile , was vWorkspace ahead of the rest ?
  • What did they do and learn
