Desktop PCs: A Major Management Problem

Desktop PCs today are complex stacks of multiple hardware components, operating systems, drivers and applications. Maintaining and managing this hardware and software consumes more than 70% of the TCO of a typical PC, and represents the bulk of the workload of PC support staff – an estimated $4000 - $6000 per desktop per year.*

*According to Gartner Inc. and IDC estimates

A Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

A virtualization infrastructure moves the PC and all its software off the desktop and into the data center.

Zero-Client verse Thin-Client

  • Local processing capabilities

  • Operating Systems

  • No operating system

  • No CPU or non-volatile Memory located at the end point

A true zero-client device only connects a monitor and peripherals (mouse, keyboard, USB devices) back to a VDI or similar infrastructure in the data center.

VNC- or RDP-equipped PCs (or blades) are deployed in the back room – work along the lines of a Hosted PC solution
