Virtual Desktops Virtual Desktops are often presented as the next best thing to sliced bread. You probably think that this is somewhat over the top. But if you look closer, Virtual Desktops can solve many of your today’s challenges. As business owners demand a lower total cost of ownership, better security, greater mobility and a more agile IT infrastructure, the traditional desktop model is defaulting on most of these requirements. Not identifying your exact requirements while moving towards Virtual Desktops is however your best recipe for failure. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) hasn’t replaced traditional desktops and laptops in the way that server virtualization has replaced physical servers, but most industry observers acknowledge that desktop virtualization use cases do offer a large additional value compared to traditional desktop and laptop delivery. To help you deploy virtual desktops for the right reasons, here are some examples of common desktop virtualization use cases. Disaster recovery As business continuity and disaster recovery plans are gaining importance, IT managers increasingly rely on desktop virtualization to provide on-demand access at a failover site. Traditionally, businesses looking at full disaster recovery would store PC inventory at a secondary, stand-by facility where users could come and work in the event that the primary location was unavailable. With virtualization, IT managers can provision thousands of desktops in a virtual environment, quickly providing access to applications in the event that worker access to primary endpoints is not possible. In addition, virtual desktops and modern remote display protocols enable users to gain access to their desktops and applications remotely. Now that mobile devices provide nearly ubiquitous Internet access, workers expect to be able to connect to corporate systems anywhere, anytime via multiple consumer devices. Security The increasing mobility of users and their devices makes it harder for IT managers to manage physical desktops and laptops. Viruses, to name one security treath have become more complex and difficult to detect. Pro+ Desktop virtualization can improve the security of data at rest. Both physical and virtual machines still have the same Windows operating system, applications and network vulnerabilities. However, desktop virtualization can improve the security of data at rest. Company data on laptops or desktops is no longer stored in unsecured environments; it is now stored within the walls of the data...
