hi guys. Our first target was tablets, since that's the most typical use case. As mentioned above, phones are convenient in a pinch, but not a device you'd want to use all the time. Windows RT launched with a great RD client in the app store, and the new Android and iOS clients happen to work on phones as well as tablets, because they share the same OS. We are committed to the Windows Phone platform and are working on a client - as a Windows Phone user, I want it as much as you do!
hey Mike. I used a Lenovo W520 for my demos. It's got an intel i7 proc and 32gb of RAM. I pulled the Bluetooth module and put in a 64mb flash drive for the OS, and it's got 2x 256gb SSD's in the 2 drive bays that are striped in a server 2012 storage pool for my VMs.
You're right, Server 2003 included a feature called Quarantine Services, you can read more about it
here. Brent talks about it a bit in the video when he talks about Microsoft's Remote Access implementation. Quarantine services work only on VPN connections, and rely on custom scripts to do all the inspection on the client. NAP can be used on VPN, IPSEC,
802.1x, or DHCP, and uses client issued health statements for the inspection. It covers more scenarios and is a faster inspection process.
you can specify what to do with unhealthy machines. Typically, you'd configure your network to put the machines on a remediation v-lan where they can only access a remediation server that pushes down any required patches, antivirus signatures, etc.
You might also have a v-lan that has internet access only, so guests on your network that don't meet your criteria for health can still get to the net.
