Desktop Virtualization Overview

Desktop Virtualization

Server-Based Virtualization

Runs virtual images on a server, and provides remote access from any endpoint (with zero-touch deployment)

  • Client-Hosted Virtualization
  • Creates a local copy of the virtual image, available to work offline, and with no servers

Key usage scenarios for Desktop Virtualization

Current focus: Accelerate upgrade to Windows Vista®:

  • Enable legacy applications that requires (Windows XP/2000) to run on the new OS platform
  • Jumpstart to future OS deployments

Future focus: Deliver a corporate-managed virtual desktop to unmanaged PCs

  • Increase manageability and usability of employee laptops
  • Drive business continuity and migration of new subsidiaries
  • Increase productivity for contractors, offshore, branch offices
  • Enable work-at-home and increased mobility

what does med v add to vpc
What Does MED-V Add To VPC?

MED-V upgrades an industry-standard virtual machine…

… to an enterprise-managed workspace:

End-user Experience and Usability

Usage Policy and Data Transfer Control

Centralized Management and Monitoring

Image Creation, Delivery and Update

Kidaro is no longer available to evaluate/purchase

Available through Microsoft Desktop Optimization

Pack (MDOP) – v1 expected in H1 CalendarYear2009

  • No change to MDOP pricing for managed desktops
med v v1 server requirements
MED-V v1 Server Requirements

OS:Windows Server 2008 (Standard/Enterprise)

Image repository: IIS web server

Reporting database (optional): MS SQL Server (2005 SP2 Enterprise or 2008 Express/Standard/Enterprise)

Scale:

  • Up to 5000 users for the management server
  • Use IIS web proxies to off-load image delivery from the management server
med v v1 client requirements
MED-V v1 Client Requirements

Host:

  • Windows Vista SP1 – 32-bit (2GB RAM Recommended)
  • Windows XP SP2/3 - 32bit (1GB RAM Recommended)

Guest: Windows XP Pro SP2/3 , Win2000 SP4

Languages: EnglishUI (with support for other Western-EU OS)

Browsers:

  • Host – Internet Explorer 7 or 8
  • Guest – Internet Explorer 7 or 6 SP2
med v v1 features
MED-V v1 – Features

Virtual images repository and deployment

  • Centralized virtual images repository for image creation/testing
  • Standard MSI for corporate software distribution
  • Auto-install package for self deploymentvia removable media (e.g. DVD) or from a website
  • Efficient image delivery and updates over LAN or WAN(using TrimTransfer de-duplication technology based on IIS)

Centralized management and monitoring

  • Centralized management server to control deployed VMs
  • Image provisioning based on Microsoft Active Directory®users/groups
  • User authentication (online over SSL or offline based on local cache)
  • Support heterogeneous environments
  • Automate first-time virtual machine setups (e.g. initial network setup, unique computer name, domain join)
  • Adjust VPC memory allocation based on available RAM on host
  • Centralized database for client activity and events

MED-V v1 – Features (cont.)

Usage policy and data transfer control

  • Per user/group usage policies (e.g. expiration, time limits for offline work)
  • Host-guest data transfer control (e.g. copy-paste, file transfer, printing)
  • Automatic redirection of predefined websites (e.g. corporate intranet) to the virtual environment

End-user experience

  • Background VM management - hide the Virtual PC session from the user, and automatically troubleshoot
  • “Publish” applications from VPC image to host Start Menu
  • Single desktop experience – applications that run in the VPC seamlessly appear side-by-side with native applications (including task-bar, tray-icons)
  • File transfer tool – share files between host and guest
