Seventy-six percent of 200 higher education IT professionals indicated an interest in adding virtual desktop delivery to their institution’s virtualization profile.
Why is there such a high level of interest?
Traditional desktop technologies don’t address lab managers’ top desktop concerns Security Management Day-to-day support and maintenance of lab and student machines Assuring data, application, and machine security independent of location Semester provisioning Ensuring that machines are quickly updated with new semester’s applications and data Access Providing students and professors “anytime, anywhere” access to data and applications Availability Ensuring availability of the lab environment in event of over-capacity and machine loss Cost Decreasing budgets combined with old equipment that does not live up to expectations

Virtual Desktop Delivery addresses lab managers’ top desktop concerns Hosted app and desktop virtualization enable user with an Internet connection to access institution resources on their own devices Security Management Decreases ongoing maintenance by offering centralized updates Hosted app and desktop virtualization provides secure access to all course apps and data from any location Semester provisioning Application virtualization enables IT to easily provision new applications to all users in a fraction of the time Access Availability Hosted desktop virtualization enables users (both in the lab and not) access to identical “desktop’ machines Cost Hosted app and desktop virtualization does not rely on the lab machine – PC refresh cycles can be increased
