Another Quick Look

Definition: Desktop virtualization centrally hosts and delivers a cost efficient desktop environment from within the datacenter by consolidating many physical desktops onto a single server or server farm.

Desktops, Laptops, Thin Clients


The “Broker”

  • Scalable
  • Persistent or NOT (Not is Better!)
  • Integrated Load Distribution
  • Failover – local / geographic
  • Optimized Performance
  • Management & Automation
  • Automated provisioning
  • Sysprep editing
  • Directory integration
  • Pooling, Persistence etc.
  • Policy-driven power management
  • Policy-driven access
  • Phyiscal and Virtual
