Today is the day!
eGroup is at the Charlotte VMUG on the CPCC West Campus and ready for a different kind of VMUG.
The Cisco UCS B-Series Blade System is delivering VMware View 4.5 Desktops running Windows 7 Enterprise (and a few Windows XP machines for those still loving the XP days) provisioned to deliver ThinApp’ed Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft Office 2007, Adobe Reader, FileZilla FTP Client and Internet Explorer 6 (running on Windows 7) using ThinApp v4.6.
Even with the limited Internet bandwidth the Windows 7 View 4.5 machines running on View 4.5 were streaming ESPN3 live video smoothly of the Miami vs. Pittsburgh Football Game last night.
Users will be able to…
* Take a test drive of VMware View 4.5 on one of the WYSE R90L Thin Clients.
* Access VMWare View 4.5 Configuration Portal and see the new features.
* Access the Cisco UCS Manager Configuration and see how it is all connected and works.
* Check out the performance of ThinApp’ed application with ThinApp 4.6.
