With Desktop Virtualisation, we have broken the bonds between the OS, Application, and Data and User Settings. With Virtualisation solutions in each of these areas, we provide our customers the ability to provide the best solution for the customer depending on the individual need.For Data and User Settings: Folder redirection and roaming profiles having the user’s personal profile and data available dynamically on any authorized PC. Providing companies with the ability to back up personal profiles and data to the data center. Solutions: Application Virtualisation: Providing end users with the ability to have their business applications available on any authorized PC. Decoupling applications from the operating system (OS) and helping to eliminate application-to-application incompatibility, because applications are no longer installed on the local client machine. In addition, application streaming expedites the application delivery process so that IT no longer needs to install applications locally on every machine.Remote App : programs that are accessed remotely through Terminal Services and appear as if they are running on the end user's local computer. Users can run RemoteApp programs side by side with their local programs. A user can minimize, maximize, and resize the program window, and can easily start multiple programs at the same time. If a user is running more than one RemoteApp program on the same terminal server, the RemoteApp programs will share the same Terminal Services session.VDI: technology enabling users to access their personalized Windows desktops that are hosted on servers. (performance subject to network connection)Session Virtualisation: Microsoft has been active in Session Virtualisation for over a decade. Session virtualisation makes it possible for companies to run an application or an entire desktop in one location, but have it be controlled in another. It allows companies to install and manage session-based desktops and applications, or virtual-machine based desktops on centralized servers in the data center; screen images are delivered to the users, and the users' client machines, in turn, send keystrokes and mouse movements back to the server. When using Session Virtualisation, administrators can present users with an entire desktop environment, or with their individual applications and data which they require to complete their task. From a user perspective, these applications are integrated seamlessly—looking, feeling, and behaving like local applications.Enterprise Desktop Virtualisation providing companies with the ability to deploy and manage virtual Windows desktops to help enterprises upgrade to the latest version of Windows, without having to worry about application compatibility. Provides companies the ability to run two operating systems on one device, adding virtual image delivery, policy-based provisioning, and centralized management.
Optimised Desktop (used to) = Standardised hardware….It was the holy grail, but no one could achieve it (even if 20 machines were the same, chipsets were differentWhy was it a problem….
Problems with XP – 1 OS Image per HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) meaning, 1 image for a single core, 1 for multi cores, 1 for HP’s, 1 for Dells, 1 For PCs and 1 for Tablets. A lot of Images! Managing this is like painting the 7 bridge. You never actually finish the task, you get to the end, MS release a SP and you have to update all the images.
Think of the component that go to make up an imageDifferent component would mean different imageUsing WAIK/MDT create a cloud of resourcesMaybe have a single gold image
