Top Desktop Virtualization Blogs

Melanie Yarbrough Profile: MelanieYarbrough

We’re covering all facets of the desktop virtualization world at IT Knowledge Exchange, and what better way to keep up on the latest in virtualization technology than to read what practicing pros and analysts are blogging about? One of the best resources for desktop virtualization blogs is TechTarget’s very own BrianMadden.com. The site has been around a long time, offering in-depth and up-to-date analysis from original bloggers:

  • Brian Madden: Independent tech analyst who’s written books and articles on application and desktop virtualization.
  • Gabe Knuth: Independent blogger, focusing on Microsoft and Citrix solutions.
  • Tim Mangan: Founder of TMurgent Technologies, Tim is a Microsoft MVP for virtualization.
  • Ruben Spruijt: As a Solutions Architect for PQR, Ruben focuses on application and desktop delivery of hardware and software virtualization.
  • Ron Oglesby: Director of Virtualization and Architectural Services at GlassHouse Technologies, Ron has co-authored several books including VMware ESX Server: Advanced Technical Design Code.
  • Jeff Pitsch: His virtualization blog focuses on terminal services and Citrix environments and is syndicated at BrianMadden.com.
  • Charles Aunger: Also syndicated, Aunger’s blog topics range from Windows 64-bit to Citrix to VMware and VirtualPC.
  • Jason Conger: He specializes in virtualization and Microsoft.Net technologies, and blogs about his experience as a System Architect.

And that’s just from Brian Madden’s Rolodex. Here are some other great places to go when you have a hankering for some desktop virtualization morsels:

  • Desktop Virtualization: Of course any website with the words desktop virtualization in the URL should be on the list.
  • The Virtualization Practice’s Desktop Virtualization blog: Several contributors make this blog about all areas of desktop virtualization a great resource. Contributors include Joe Jessen and Simon Bramfitt, both industry analysts.
  • Simon Bramfitt: While his blog covers several different tech topics, he has a whole section dedicated to the topic of desktop virtualization.
