Virtual, cloud-based desktops for education - ready for frosh week

On Demand

 A virtual desktop architecture, or VDI, can make a world of difference in education. Affordability, security, and scaling according to "at the moment" needs are just a few of the ways VDI can be a game-changer for educational IT providers.

On July 19th, join ITWC CIO and Chief Content Officer Jim Love and special guest Diego Magalhaes, Amazon Web Services (AWS) Senior Solutions Architect, as they discuss the provisioning of virtual, cloud-based desktops for educational users. In this session, Love and Magalhaes will delve into topics including?
• The evolution from legacy desktop machines to virtual desktop
• The challenges that cloud-based VDI can address - security, affordability, scalability, and more
• Comparing traditional computer labs to cloud-based VDI workspaces

Love and Magalhaes will look at Amazon WorkSpaces for Education - a cloud-based VDI solution that gives students and instructors consistent access to teaching and learning software, and IT departments the ability to offer the services today's students demand, at a cost that won't break even tight education budgets.

Love and Magalhaes will welcome special guest, Marty Sullivan, Cloud Engineer at Cornell University, one of the premier private universities in the US, to discuss how they reinvented course delivery using cloud, and specifically how they went about implementing Amazon WorkSpaces.

Don't miss this one.
