C/D/H virtualization experts, Eric Inch and Jason Shroll, provide a side-by-side comparison of the two main enterprise desktop virtualization solutions.

VMware, the leader in server virtualization with vSphere, provides a compelling virtual desktop suite and excellent end user experience with VMware View. Citrix, the long-time leader in presentation services, expands its offering for virtual desktops with XenDesktop, and a collection of other technologies, to provide an enterprise solution for any company.

How do these solutions stack up?

View C/D/H's Desktop Virtualization Smackdown slide deck and find out this, and more!!

  • 6. User Perspective: John AndertonCDH
  • 7. CDH How VDI helps John • A virtualized desktop sits next to virtualized servers in the data center at the physical layer for maximum speed. • A virtualized application can run even faster than a typical application installation. • VDI clients can flip between several open desktops at once with multiple monitor support for up to 4 monitors.
  • 8. User Perspective: TheoCDH
  • 9. CDH How VDI helps Theo • VDI allows desktops to be refreshed every day upon logon from a central ‘Gold’ image (snapshot). • A user’s virtual desktop is their own. If they want to customize it or try to break it, they are given the power to do so. It’s easy to rebuild and refresh. No more rebuilding operating systems from scratch.
  • 10. CDH User Perspective: Whistler
  • 11. CDH How VDI helps Whistler • VMware PCoIP and Citrix HDX protocols deliver multimedia content faster than RDP for a maximum user experience. • Both View and XenDesktop allow USB redirection from the client to virtual desktop.
