Desktop Virtualization


Thomas hoover associate vice chancellor and chief information officer

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.

Thin Client Device

Why desktop virtualization?

  • Less money (48% cheaper than PC)

  • 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
