Ori HusytAgile IT Consulting Team Managerorih@agileit.co.il
The explosion of devices is eroding the standards-based approach to corporate IT.
Deploying and managing applications across platforms is difficult.
Users need to be productive while maintaining compliance and reducing risk.
Users expect to be able to work in any location and have access to all their work resources.
Enable your end users
Allow users to work on the devices of their choice and provide consistent access to corporate resources.
Unify your environment
Deliver a unified application and device management on-premises and in the cloud.
Protect your data
Help protect corporate information and manage risk.Management. Access. Protection.
Why Microsoft VDI?
Deliver great user experience
Why Microsoft VDI?
Reduce time to deploy applications and updates
Balance user requirements with corporate compliance
Protect against loss and leaks of sensitive corporate data
Save resources with the flexible storage options right to your environment
Centrally administer and manage desktops
Enable users to access corporate apps and data from any device/any location
VDI with Windows Server 2012
Powered by Windows Server 2012
1 platform 1 experience 3 deployment choices
Public LocationCorporate Office Branch Office Home
Sessions Personal VMsPooled VMs
Choosing the Right VDI Architecture
Ease of management
User Profile Disk maintains user
personalization in pooled deployments.
Fair Share dynamically distributes
bandwidth, CPU, and disk use.
Flexible storage options support direct-
attached, network-attached, or storage area
network (SAN) storage of virtual machines.
Easy deployment automates deploying and
configuring server roles.
Unified administration uses a single,
integrated console for management.
Streamlined management helps IT manage
pooled and personal virtual machines.
Rich User Experience
USB redirection enables access to locally
attached devices in remote desktops.
RemoteFX for wide area network (WAN)
dynamically detects network conditions and
Seamless experience supports multitouch,
new Windows Experience, and Start menu
Graphics processing unit (GPU) support
for both physical and software GPUs.
Best Value for VDI
Automated deployment and
Admin tools integrated in
Efficient management with simple deployment, intuitive administration, and scalability
Simplifies management of pooled
and personal virtual machines
Unified administration Remote Desktop Services
of virtual machines
Easy deployment with automation
Set up a simple VDI deployment easily and quickly
Use wizard-based setup and deployment for multiple scenarios
Create virtual machines automatically with settings
Unified administration that is intuitive to manage
Provide one, integrated console for roles, servers, collections, users, and virtual machines
Session Shadowing integrated with console
Automate and manage at scale with Windows PowerShell
Offer consistent publishing applications and desktops
Streamlined management of virtual machines for scalability
Use master images for personal and pooled virtual machines
Avoid patch storms by queuing maintenance updates
Accelerate system preparation, optimize logons, and provide automatic rollbacks
User Profile Disk Multiple storage optionsFair Share
Best value for VDI with key platform capabilities
Support direct attached, network, or
SAN storage of virtual machines.
Automatic Tiering and Deduplication

personalization in pooled
High availability for all roles
User Profile Disk
Enable personalization on pooled virtual machines or sessions
Store user data and settings on a separate virtual hard disk
Simplify deployment of lower-cost VDIs (pooled virtual machines and sessions)
VDI Session Host
Personalization with User Profile Disk
User Profile Disk with pooled virtual machine collections
User Profile Disk with remote desktop session host collections
What should I deploy?
User Profile Disk
With every virtual machine pool and
remote desktop session host collection
User environment virtualization
To apply roam settings across collections
To apply roaming user data across
To centralize user data backup
BenefitsAvailable with pooled virtual machine collections and remote desktop session host collections
Stores all user settings and data
Contains roaming user profile, Folder Redirection cache, and user environment virtualization
Roams with user within collection
Appears as a local disk and improves application compatibility
Helps ensure high performance across user virtual machines and sessions
Apply to both sessions and virtual machines
Dynamically distributes resources (bandwidth, CPU, and I/O)
Multiple storage options
Use direct-attached storage, network-attached storage, and clustered or SAN storage
Leverage tiered storage to automatically optimize performance
Reduce storage cost by leveraging disk deduplication
configurationWindows Server 2012 Storage spaces
Server Message Block 3.0 (SMB3) and Hyper-V SMB support
Cluster storage volume
Scale-out file server
Online disk dedupe and tiered storage
VDI storage configuration Direct-attached, central SMB, or
central CSV / SAN
Storage location of User Profile Disks, parent virtual hard disk, and virtual machines can be configured separately for each collection
