Windows 8.1 Quick Guide for Business

without comments

Microsoft has published a great guide for Windows 8 which gives you an overview of how the OS functionality can be used for businesses. I really like the last few slides as they explain all important keyboard shortcuts and swipes.

Windows 8.1 brings together everything you do across all your devices whether at work or on the go. Windows helps you stay productive and connected while mobile. Windows allows you to create a truly one of a kind experience that is made for the way you work. Whether you’re brand new to Windows 8.1, or just want a refresher, this quick guide will show you the basics and beyond.

without comments

Cisco and VMware are together simplifying the physical and virtual infrastructure management associated with virtual desktops deplyoments. to learn more, please check the VMware blogs. you’ll find the link at the end of the article.

Both Cisco and VMware have diligently delivered on our joint vision to regain control of the corporate desktop environment. We’ve integrated VMware View with the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS). We’ve made the Cisco Desktop Virtualization Solution with VMware View a core module of the Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) system. Known simply as Cisco VXI with VMware View, the solution addresses today’s IT and end-user challenges: achieving scalable, high-performance desktop virtualization with media-rich communications, unified management, pervasive security and an uncompromised user experience. The integration of voice, video and virtual desktops transforms desktops into virtual collaborative workspaces.

In an effort to simplify implementation, we are working with our ecosystem partners including NetApp and EMC to deliver Cisco Validated Designs that provide detailed technical guidance based on validated and tested configurations. Both NetApp and EMC have worked with Cisco and VMware to deliver separate validated reference architectures for shared infrastructure and virtual desktops.

Customers of VMware, Cisco and NetApp, including Metro Health (a regional healthcare provider based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan) have embraced our joint solution, achieving significant cost and efficiency benefits. Read about optimizing clinical workflows with VMware View and Cisco VXI or hear what Metro Health has to say about utilizing desktop virtualization to optimize clinical workflows and improve care.

Metro Health in example is using VMware View with Cisco VXI and NetApp.

without comments

Today VMware announced the acquisition of Socialcast, a leading provider of collaboration solutions for the enterprise. Socialcast enables business communications. The deployment approach is very interesting. Companies get offered a SaaS Service, or a private cloud solution (hosted or on-promise).

Steve Herrod, CTO of VMware published an excellent article with loads of information about the solution.
