As with the rest of the Connect communities, Endpoint Virtualization will have a newsletter of it's own containing the most interesting information that has appeared in the community in the previous month. Anyone remember the old SVS Newsletter? Well if you do, then you know what I'm talking about - you won't want to miss an issue! But you will if you don't subscribe! It's simple. Go to your user profile and click on the "Newsletters" tab (see? not rocket science), then check the box next to "Endpoint Virtualization", finally click "Save Settings" and you're done!

One note - occasionally our newsletters end up in your spam folder (imagine that!) I set up a filter in my email client that makes sure everything from Connect@symantec.com goes to my inbox. I work here, it seemed like the right thing to do!

Sign up now and Happy Reading!

I had the pleasure of participating in the latest Citrix Geek Speak event this past week.  Hosted by Shawn Bass, representatives from Citrix, Microsoft, VMware, Quest, and of course Symantec (me) all had an opportunity to respond to some of the most common concerns and issues around practical implementations of VDI.  This included a discussion of current challenges, as well as how each company was addressing them and what we thought it might look like in the future.

As Shawn indicated at one point, this was the first forum where every vendor participant agreed that there was not one single solution to address all ecosystems (a theme Symantec has promoted for years).  Among topics discussed were the viability of pooled hosted virtual desktops, user state management, “heavy” applications that may not work well in this environment, WAN performance, and more.

So in case you missed this discussion, the archive is available at the link...

Last year, Symantec Workspace Virtualization was included in a report from "Devil Mountain Software" hosted on the XPNet site.

The report was not flattering to our SEV application virtualization product. Based on the writing style and testing methodology we felt it was likely written by Randall C. Kennedy as a paid piece for VMware, although that information was NOT revealed in the report which was presented as an "independent" third-party opinion.

The report highlighted specific areas where ThinApp would indeed have performed better, but which we believed were misleading and largely irrelevant to a production community of users. For example, the testing left out a broad range of requirements for running application virtualization in an enterprise environment.

Well, today Network World posted an article reporting that it was indeed Kennedy working under an "alias" of "Craig Barth," the so-called CTO of Devil Mountain...

After two very successful day's at the previous Altiris headquarters in Lindon I had to travel to Jacksonville Florida. Sunday is my first day off after 8 very exhausting day's of traveling, working, catching up some sleep and traveling again.

I'm making a tour through the United States. Actually I will hit on 10 States in 12 days.

I started in Somerset, New Jersey on Sunday. Traveled to Manhattan Wall Street on Monday.
On Tuesday after a very exiting day of work on Wall Street I took the Acela train to Boston.
I left Boston Thursday very early to get to Salt Lake City with a short stop in Phoenix, Arizona.
Saturday morning very early I left Salt Lake where it was snowing and freezing and made a short stop in Atlanta (22 minutes) to go to Jacksonville.
Monday I will do a VirtualStorm implementation in Jacksonville and Monday evening I fly to Atlanta.
Tuesday I do a VirtualStorm Installation in Atlanta and Wednesday morning I have a Flight...

Hey friends and fans of Symantec Workspace Virtualization, formerly known as SVS…

SYS-CON has opened their Virtualization Journal “Readers’ Choice Awards” 2009 and this year Symantec Endpoint Virtualization Suite has been nominated for Best Application Virtualization.

Last year Symantec was proud to win this award, as well as “Best App Virtualization Solution” for SYS-CON’s West Coast event.  It’s very cool to see our community participate and get this recognition.  For many years the SVS IT community has been bringing virtualization technology benefits into server-based-computing and alternative desktops, but primarily into the mainstay of IT - traditional rich client computing environments.

As part of our Juice and Connect community, you’ve come from Altiris desktop management backgrounds, AppStream, with traditional and SaaS delivery models, nSuite in healthcare and SMB site support, and have...
