The MCS team have been delivering a number of sessions for “MCS Talks Enterprise Architecture Session 10 – Application Virtualization” on 10 December 2008 16:00 GMT, London.
In the last of the current “MCS Talks Infrastructure Architecture” series, we will focus on application virtualization. We’ll begin by giving and overview of the Microsoft virtualization portfolio and where application virtualization sits. We’ll then discuss in what scenarios application virtualization can be used and some common misconceptions about its usage. The remainder of the session will discuss the different delivery methodologies for application virtualization, the possible architectures for deploying Microsoft App-V in the enterprise today and how to scale the infrastructure to meet different scenarios. We’ll be including considerations for both well connected and branch office environments, and your options for both internet based and standalone machines. Finally we’ll discuss the options for integrating with 3rd party electronic software distribution systems and the built in integration with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Release 2.
