I've been asked this question several times, so I thought it might be worth blogging it.

You are probably aware that a load balancer is required if you need your Symantec Workspace Streaming environment to be highly available, scalable, robust and all that good stuff. Now, when you do setup a load balancer, you need to make sure it has been setup correctly with all the necessary configurations implemented the way you intended it to be. Check out the connect article where it talks about configuring load balancer with Symantec Workspace Streaming.

After you think you have configured it all well, the moment of truth is when the users use. Or should that be the moment of truth? To avoid any escalations and embarassment, ideally you should test these configurations. Ideally, the following 5 functionalities should be tested.

Health check of the nodes...

I don't know how I missed the previous events, They are an outstanding way to interact with others that are implementing the same technology or for those of you that haven't made the leap, YET, to get your feet wet.

ErikW had a great presentation on the amazing things his company DinamiQs is doing. I've read hundreds of his posts here but never realized the amazing things they are doing. Congratualations!

Eric Hughes gave the lowdown on all the new 7.5 features. That concise slide with an overview will be a great help.

Andy thanks for hosting these and thanks for the call to give me a heads up! Sorry I couldn't get the OK to give a presentation. I couldn't hold a candle to Erik's 1,000,000 desktops anyway!

Whoever asked about Desktop Support removing virtual apps, feel free to contact me for the details arond the Windows Installer keys that need to be modified to prevent this.

One piece of feedback, maybe we should introduce ourselves when asking/...

I attended my first BriForum this week and it was quite interesting. If you are not familiar with this conference, it is a vendor neutral event focused on application virtualization, desktop virtualization, VDI, etc. It was held in Chicago at the McCormick convention center and I'm guessing had around 500 attendees and at least 30 vendors showcasing their wares. 

There were 3 days of sessions presented by experts from various companies. Most of the sessions were focused on best practices rather than a specific vendor. There were also sponsored sessions where vendors could pitch their products. Overall, I think it was a very good event.

The most popular topics were VDI (good, bad, and the ugly) and BYOD. The opinions expressed in these areas vary greatly and I enjoyed hearing different perspectives. Some say that VDI is just a dream with big promises that do not justify the cost. Others claim that VDI has huge benefits and is the future.

One of the more...
