9/11 I can never forget that day.

A long time ago, it seems to be ages I was working as an independent contractor for a local governement in the Netherlands. My tasks were to turn a unmanaged Citrix environement into a managed one. During the weeks I looked at Altiris and thought it might be a good product to do the task and I started a develoment team to write and deploy the necessary scripts. With these scripts we could deploy Citrix servers very fast, ensuring all the necessary software was on the server and that the server became a member of the farm. It looked like a very difficult task, but all the way it went pretty smoothly. Not many problems and when they occured we could easely solve them. I really enjoyed the work as every day I saw the environment growing and during the development we also descovered how we could utilise the software more and more.

Now today I remember this job like no other. Not because of the software, the tasks or the succes...

WOW! DVS SMART has almost reached 10.000 downloads. It's amazing and it tells us that there is a demand to have something between SVSadmin and SWS.

A lot of the users who downloaded the software have asked us for improvements and enhancements and we listened to this.

In a few weeks, yes I will let you know, a new version of SMART will be released that makes managing SWV layers even much easier.

A full list of all functionality and improvements will be posted soon.

So for everybody that is not aware of SMART:

Smart stands for Simplified Management Application repository Tool and you install it on every desktop, laptop or VDI image that you use to run SWV virtualised applications.

Traditionally Symantec has two tools available for you

  • SWV admin
  • SWS streaming

SWV admin allows you to locally manage layers and to perform certain tasks, but you need administrator privileges. When end users have admin...

This video presentation from BriForums 16 Aug 2011 - can be found on BrianMadden.com

Presented by: Brian Duckering for Symantec Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is the most sought after client computing technology of the past decade, due to the enormous potential benefits for IT. However many are finding that these advantages can come with increased costs and greater infrastructure complexity. Much of this comes from the dynamic nature of VDI, and its ability to be deployed, multiplied and recycled very easily and rapidly, and having to coexist with other computing models, like laptops, desktops and terminal servers. Endpoint Virtualization is rapidly becoming a standard component of successful VDI implementations. This session will discuss the specific technologies and methods that best...

One of the biggest issues facing IT today is user demand for greater mobility and increased personal choice in the devices they use. More and more employees are growing less willing to live with IT mandated devices. Choice is the new paradigm. On top of this, for many, their personal and business lives are coming together. Thus, our computing devices are increasingly being used for a blend of personal and business activities.

The massive proliferation of smart mobile devices has made this challenge – known as the consumerization of IT – more complicated. But it didn’t start there. It actually started a while ago with laptops and remote workers. Regardless, the issues are still the same: security and management. What smart mobile devices have added to the equation are many more platforms and operating systems to deal with, instead of just a single OS.

In a world where mobile devices are incredibly sophisticated, the risks surrounding these devices and...
