Health IT: How to overcome in-house server complexities


Many health care organizations utilize XenApp farms to centrally manage applications and computing resources. And although this makes remote access of clinical applications more convenient, XenApp farms are typically very complex and expensive to license and maintain. Virtualizing these farms with VMware can alleviate some of the shortcomings, and increase overall effectiveness.

Join industry experts Greg Shields, Founding Partner at Concentrated Technology, and Frank Nydam, Director of Health Care Solutions & Business Development at VMware,  to get expert tips and best practices for virtualizing your XenApp servers, including:

  • Virtualization strategies that reduce infrastructure complexity Allowing the servers to be included in the same management and DR pools with other virtualized servers
  • Allowing common management and DR pools in mixed environments
  • New approaches to reduce or eliminate planned and unplanned downtime
  • And much more
