This morning waiting for the shuttle I met:
- A gentleman from a financial services company excited by the performance of initial pilots of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure with SunRay thin clients connecting to a Sun x4600. The AMD guys beside him were happy to hear about it. (See also this similar lab setup.)
- A Latin American consultant excited about rolling out server consolidation and virtual desktops alongside their Citrix practice.
- Someone from a company rolling out their business applications with VMware Server after having started by downloading and trying VMware Player.
- An IT exec from an energy company looking into consolidating 1000’s of Windows- and Unix-based workloads — his initial calculations show 6 dollars returned for every dollar spent.
If you see me at the conference, say hi!
