3D CAD apps and demanding power users across 30 regional offices aren't your typical VDI use case. Yet, architectural engineering firm STV, Inc. is finding success implementing virtual desktops in its private cloud.

How is STV on pace to deploy VDI to 1,000+ users, with day-to-day administration handled by Tier 1 IT staff?

  • How to package and update all apps in minutes - even complex ones like Autodesk
  • How to market and sell VDI internally
  • How to maximize IOPS and graphics performance
