Desktop virtualization– or a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)– utilizes the same basic technologies as server virtualization. This represents a tremendous potential for any organization with regards to desktop management and cost. VDI is designed to give system administrators and end-users the best of both worlds: the ability to host and centrally manage their desktops in the data center while giving end users a full PC desktop experience identical to that of a regular PC. This transparent experience is available from current PCs or a thin client device, from the same office or remotely.
The two dominant solutions today are Citrix’s XenDesktop and VMware’s VMware View. A solution like Citrix XenDesktop is an open solution that integrates as well with VMware’s ESX/vSphere and Microsoft’s Hyper-V as with its own integrated XenServer.
Let’s discuss how virtualization could become your most competitive business advantage. Virtualization is no longer a technology for technology’s sake, but a technology for business’ sake.
