eG Innovations Webcast: Four Best Practices for Delivering Exceptional User Experience in VMware Horizon VDI Environments

eG Innovations Webcast: Four Best Practices for Delivering Exceptional User Experience in VMware Horizon VDI Environments

Topic: Ensuring exceptional user experience is critical in all VDI deployments because virtualized applications and desktops are highly performance-sensitive. Even a minor problem anywhere in the infrastructure can degrade user experience and, in turn, affect business productivity. When slowness is detected, the multitude of inter-dependent infrastructure and application elements required for VDI to function make it a challenge for administrators to identify and resolve problems quickly.

Join this VMUG webinar by Bala Vaidhinathan, CTO of eG Innovations, and learn about best practices and tips to build a robust performance and user experience management strategy for your VMware Horizon environment.

You will learn how to:
• Track all aspects of VDI User Experience – from user logon to application launch and session latency
• Monitor the performance of every session (PCoIP, Blast, RDP) and that of every layer and every tier of the VMware Horizon infrastructure
• Auto-baseline the infrastructure for proactive problem management
• Monitor VDI as a Service, not as individual silos; Use automated Root Cause Diagnosis for faster problem resolution
• Plan for capacity, using empirical data and insights, and right-size the VDI environment for maximum ROI

Deepen your understanding about ensuring a great user experience and achieving VDI performance success!

HPE Webcast: Multicloud Data Mobility Made Easy

HPE Webcast: Multicloud Data Mobility Made Easy

Topic: You run your enterprise applications on VMware and are now ready to move to the cloud. The problem is, most legacy applications expect enterprise reliability and data services that are not readily available in the cloud. To make it worse, it is very difficult to move data between on-premises and cloud while a lack of visibility leads to shadow IT and spiraling costs. In this session, you will learn about HPE Cloud Volumes and how it makes your journey between VMware and the cloud a lot easier.

- Get the simplicity of native cloud storage with enterprise-grade reliability and features
- See across clouds and your data center and easily optimize costs and resource usage
- Demo: Moving data volumes from on-premises VMware to AWS or Azure (and back again if you need to) in just a few clicks

Professional Development Webcast Series (Part 3 of 3): Mindfulness & Mayhem

Learning Studio Webcast: Mindfulness & Mayhem

Topic: “Happiness is an inside job.” — Sylvia Boorstein The world operates at a dizzying pace. Between work deadlines, the demands of home and family life, and the general stress of life and the external environment, things can start to seem overwhelming. This course will focus on mindfulness and emotional intelligence training, integrating deep personal development with best practices we’ve learned from individuals and teams creating positive change within organizations. What is mindfulness exactly? It is the moment-to-moment awareness of one's experience without judgment. In this sense, mindfulness is a state and not a trait. While it might be promoted by certain practices or activities, such as meditation, it is not equivalent to or synonymous with them. Among its theorized benefits are self-control, objectivity, affect tolerance, enhanced flexibility, improved concentration and mental clarity, emotional intelligence and the ability to relate to others and one's self with kindness, acceptance and compassion. Additionally, mindfulness is highly correlated to stress reduction, one of its most popular features for most interested individuals.

Key Takeaways:
• Identify the definition of mindfulness and what practices develop mindfulness.
• Identify at least four benefits of the effect of mindfulness and emotional intelligence on the workplace.
• Understand how to put mindfulness and emotional intelligence into your daily practice to live a more balanced, healthy and happy existence.
