Microsoft Desktop, Part 4 of 8: DFSR Server and Virtualization

with Chris Bell

When OS deployments are preformed remotely across different sites on the enterprise using MDT we need to ensure the network performance is not affected. Microsoft offers two features, Disrupted File System Replication or DFSR and System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, known as SCCM 2012, to support OS deployment with optimized network performance. It is also important to ensure that a user is not bound and restricted to one desktop. It is our responsibility as a system administrator to allow the user access to required data from any PC or location. We can perform these tasks using User State Virtualization. Through this course we’ll get familiar with configuring of the DFSR server and SCCM 2012. We’ll see how we will be able to enhance the manageability and the scalability of our network during the OS deployment process. Then we will see how managing User State Virtualization will lets us create a centralized data center that providers our use the flexibility to access the required data from any location.
