Robert Smith Optimize for VDI

About Show #305

Richard chats with Robert Smith about his experiences tuning Windows to operate with Virtualized Desktops. Robert starts out with dealing with boot times with Windows 7 - some customers were waiting up to ten minutes to boot! Careful boot log analysis finds answers. The conversation also digs into the whole cycle of patching, WSUS, service packs, hot fixes - every time a base image has to change, it impacts users. If you're even thinking about VDI, there's some great tips here!


Robert Smith started with Microsoft in July 1998 for technical support in Windows 95 and NT4. Within a year he was a premier field engineer. Robert specializes in performance analysis, tuning and debugging.
