Virtual Desktop Initiative at UTC

What is desktop virtualization?

A thin client device can be used instead of a full size computer. The thin client remotely connects to a server and displays the Windows 7 operating system on the thin client device connected to a monitor.

  • Less energy ( more than 89% more energy efficient)
  • Easier to manage and maintain
  • Most people are just using Microsoft Office products and surfing the web
