Virtual Desktops - Are You Ready?

So you've made the decision to deploy a desktop virtualisation solution to:
  • Increase flexibility, enabling users to work from anywhere on any device
  • Improve business agility and the ability to quickly deliver IT to new employees, remote offices, or recently acquired companies
  • Free up valuable IT resources to focus on growing your business vs. managing your desktops

Desktop virtualisation typically involves running virtual machines on a hypervisor in a datacenter, instead of running individual desktops at the client device level. The centralised nature allows users to access their data and applications from almost any remote device (e.g.. desktop, laptop, tablet, ipad, smartphone, etc.). This helps your IT department to:

  • Maintain corporate compliance
  • Quickly add new users profiles to the network
  • Address corporate security and user storage concerns
I am currently involved with a number of projects that provides for Cloud based email services from Google and virtual desktops. This level nothing in the client office accept some Cloud PC's or Thin-Clients.
