Several months back, I got up in this forum to talk about some good stuff for the branch office from our friends at Riverbed. As part of that discussion, I described a tech-preview of a VDI deployment architecture where the virtual desktops themselves are distributed to servers in the branch, while management stays centralized at the datacenter.  Well, today I’m excited to announce that we’re moving out of tech-preview and into full support of distributed branch architectures with partners like Riverbed, Ciscoand others.

The first solution to come to market in this space is indeed from Riverbed Technologies.  You can read all about it in the press release.

There’s a lot of good stuff in this announcement, but what I’m going to focus on right now is the potential of this new architecture itself.
