Public Beta of service pack for windows 2008 r2 and windows 7 is on the way…

dynamic memory allocation, 3-D graphical experience for remote users via Remote FX and preparation for Cloud computing are few of the major promises to come along with it. In an opening-day keynote speech at Microsoft Corp.’s Tech•Ed 2010 North America conference they has release the official note saying public can expect this service pack on end of the July. Stay tune for this and see what experiment you can experience.

I would be more happy to see the Dynamic memory allocation feature which will allow the VPC to dynamically borrow the memory from other VPC’s when they’re under utilized.

Battery life decrease after the Apple IOS 4 upgrade to the Apple iTouch

I was keep in counting the days until the Apple release the free IOS 4 update for the iPod devices. If I’m correct June 22nd they released the update OS and I managed to upgrade my iTouch OS on 3 a.m.!

Everything is normal for me initially until I notice how quickly the batter drain after 1-2 hours usage of the device. Under the previous OS I didn’t experienced of this apart from occasional playing of SNIPER 3D game. Of course anyone can understand the graphic intensive games like that can drain the juice very quickly from that device. After some forum search I found out I’m not the only moron screaming and blaming Apple for this issues.
Finally I decided to do a hard reset of the device. Most of the forums has clearly mention to backup the data and settings and proceed with that. But as a thumb rule I didn’t do that 🙂 But found out I didn’t loose the data but now the device is functioning smoothly with longer battery life.

In order to do a hard reset hold down the home button and the reset button nearly 10 seconds until the apple log appears. As a thumb rule backup the data!! you’ll not be luck as I’m 😛

Remote Desktop virtualization host capacity planning

 

After the main buzz of the server virtualization the next key thing in the industry is Desktop virtualization or else known as VDI. Some of the enterprise companies looking at this solution as a way to increase their hardware life cycle and for some it is a method to tightly control the access point for their central data access. Never the less this is a important technology for the Service partners as well.
