Desktop Virtualization

Desktop Virtualization allows IT organizations to separate the desktop from specific physical devices or locations and create a Universal Client.

Reduce Costs

  • Reduce overall cost of desktop computing by up to 45%, by centralizing management, administration and resources
  • Remove IT infrastructure from remote offices and datacenters
  • Extend lifetime of desktop hardware

Increase Security

  • Understand and mitigate risk of data loss by maintaining all data within the corporate firewall
  • Enable all corporate desktops to be at highest level of patching and AntiVirus updates

Greater Management and Control

  • Manage all desktops centrally in the datacenter instead of distributed remote sites
  • Provision desktops instantly to new users, new departments and facilitate office moves
  • Manage large numbers of desktops as one entity

Implicit Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

  • Any network point can be a work area recovery site
  • Guaranteed Business Continuity since the same desktop is accessed from Disaster Recovery scenario as ordinary workplace
  • Reduce financial and carbon cost of desktop power by up to 80% (Butler Group, “Infrastructure Virtualization”, September 2007) when used in conjunction with Thin Clients which typically use 1/10 the power of a PC
