While at the recent Symantec Vision and Microsoft Management Summit events, we had a chance to interview IT managers and ecosystem partners and ask them to help with our marketing of Intel Core vPro processors. Specifically we asked them to fill in the blank to this line: "Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors have the intelligence of (Fill in the blank) on every chip." Watch the video to see what they said.

 

While at the recent Symantec Vision and Microsoft Management Summit events, we had a chance to interview IT managers and ecosystem partners and ask them to help with our marketing of Intel Core vPro processors.  Specifically we asked them to fill in the blank to this line: “With Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors, you can secure your PCs, cut you costs and have more (Fill in the blank).” Watch the video to see what they said.

 

 

While at Symantec Vision, we had a chance to film Ganesh Rama, Senior Product Manager at Symantec, who demonstrated how IT can better align application licenses with actual use via Symantec Workspace Streaming and Intel Core vPro processors. In the video, he showcases how PCs with an Intel Core vPro processor and Symantec Workspace Streaming enable more efficient application provisioning by streaming applications as employees need them, instead of loading them on every machine, and how IT can release and reharvest licenses that are not in use by the employee.

While at Symantec Vision, we had a chance to video-tape Sean Waddell, a Product Manager at Symantec, demonstrating a preview of hardware-based KVM Remote Control from a Symantec Altiris Client Management Suite to a laptop PC based on the 2010 Intel Core i5 vPro processor. 

 

With the ability for IT to now see what the user sees through all states, even when the Operating System "blue or black screens", is starting-up or shutting down, IT can now solve problems that many times previously required a deskside visit in the past.  One example is when the network adaptor is disabled in the Operating System.  Now IT can use a hardware-based KVM Remote Control communication channel from the Symantec management console, and remotely connect to and repair the PC based on 2010 Intel Core vPro processors, even when the user disables the network adaptor in the Operating System.

 

Watch the video below to learn more about the power of 2010 Intel Core vPro processors with KVM Remote Control.

 

Absolute Software is one of the leading vendors providing support for Intel Anti-Theft technology, and they have a cloud-based application that helps business of all sizes with their anti-theft needs.  In a previous blog, I covered how Absolute Software can disable laptops with 2010 Intel Core vPro processors if they are lost or stolen.

 

A recent development is a new Absolute Software Management Pack that helps connect Absolute Software and Intel Anti-Theft technology with the new Microsoft System Center Service Manager 2010.  This new management console is meant for IT problem resolution technicians, and the management pack helps IT managers easily integrate Intel Anti-theft technology capabilities into their existing IT workflow.

 

For a demonstration, we recently filmed Absolute Software's Geoff Glave while at the Microsoft Management Summitt 2010. Watch the video below to learn more.

 

 

 

Also - while at MMS, we had Travis Wright, a senior program manager lead with Microsoft, talk about the benefits of 2010 Intel Core vPro processors (including Intel Anti-Theft technology) with Microsoft System Center Service Manager 2010.  Watch the video below to learn more.

 

 

While at MMS 2010, we had Matt Royer, a Senior Technical Integration Engineer with Intel, give a demonstration of KVM Remote Control with Microsoft System Center Service Manager 2010. He shows how the combination allows IT to "get behind the user's keyboard-video-mouse (KVM)" through all PC states without leaving their chair and see what their users see - even when the Operating System blue-screens, is starting-up or shutting down.  Please note that in the demonstration, Matt is using a hardware-based communication channel between Service Manager and the 2010 Intel Core i5 vPro processor based laptop, and is not using a software or agent based remote communication channel.  The demo is especially applicable for problem resolution IT technicians who want to be more efficient and effective by using these new tools to solve more problems remotely, instead of having to visit an end-user's desk (or have an unresponsive laptop shipped back to IT).

On April 13th, Intel Vice-President Rick Echevarria was part of the opening ManageFusion keynote led by Symantec's Steve Morton.

 

After Steve showcased the need for Intel Core vPro processors by visiting donutsforlife.org, Rick talked about how more than 70% of the Fortune 500 customers are realizing value today with Intel Core vPro processors and getting a return on investment that pays for itself in less than one year.  He also talked about new Intel Core vPro processor developments with Altiris Client Management Suite and KVM Remote Control (or the ability for IT to remotely control an end-user's keyboard-video-mouse, even during OS "Blue and black screens" and OS start-up and shut-down).

Intel vPro Technology enhances existing PGP Whole Disk Encryption solutions by enabling IT to remotely disable PCs (and the associated data on the hard drives) that are lost or stolen, regardless of whether the PC connects to the Internet. To learn more, watch the below video from PGP Director Sanjit Shah:

 

Intel vPro Technology enhances existing Absolute solutions by enabling the remote disablement of PCs that are lost or stolen, regardless of whether the PC connects to the Internet. In addition, the lost PC can feature a custom screen that can feature instructions on how to return the PC in case it is found. To learn more, watch the below video from Absolute Software Product Manager Geoff Glave:

 

As part of our efforts to introduce the all new 2010 Intel Core vPro processor family, we put together a series of videos that feature Steve Grobman, Intel's Chieft Architect in our Digital Office Platform Group.  He's been on the team that has led the development of Intel vPro technology for the past half decade, and was once in Intel IT's department. The videos also feature Intel's Josh Hilliker - who helps Steve demonstrate the new technologies.

 

In his first video, Steve talks about the new developments in Intelligent Performance - and he also showcases how Intel Turbo Boost Technology and AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard - New Instructions) help improve performance for today's office worker:

 

 

In his second video, Steve talks about the new developments in Smart Security - and he also showcases how Intel vPro technology helps disable lost PCs and data, and can also help IT manage encrypted hard drives remotely:

 

 

 

In his third video, Steve talks about the new developments in Cost Saving Manageability - and he also showcases how Intel vPro technology helps IT or IT service providers control an office worker's keyboard-video-mouse (KVM) remotely ... even when the Operating System has blue-screened:

 

 

In his fourth video, Steve talks about how small businesses can benefit from Intel vPro technology, and how service providers like AT&T are excited about  the all new 2010 Intel Core vPro processor family:

 

 

In his last video, Steve talks about how Intel vPro technology is bringing proven results to organizations today:

 

As part of our launch of the all new 2010 Intel Core vPro processor family, Microsoft Vice-President Brad Anderson talked about how "vPro enables us to do things inside of System Center that in the past required the help desk to actually visit a desktop ... [including] remotely troubleshooting PCs even when the Operating System has not been booted."  To see a demonstration of how Intel vPro technology with System Center Config Mgr 2007 helps reduce time-consuming desk-side visits, watch the demonstration below from Jeff Wattlaufer of Microsoft's Systems Center Product Group:
