  • Why are you looking at desktop virtualization?
  • Cost reduction… equipment, support, software Consolidation into the data centerSecured desktop information at the data centerClaim green
  • So we’ve seen the hype, but what are they really talking about? In simple terms….what is the Cloud…..and what are the benefits to businesses?The key characteristics of Cloud Computing - it is based on a virtualized infrastructure, is designed to be highly scalable and is provisioned as a service. More specifically:-Most clouds are underpinned by “utility billing”…or pay as you go. Think of your electric bill at home where you pay for only what you use. Same with the Cloud.Generally speaking, Cloud resources are unlimited. Great when you are not sure how much compute power or storage you’ll need for a certain workload. It’s good to know its there if you need it!Another key attribute of the cloud is that you can rapidly scale it up or down….depending on your needs. Again paying for only what you need.Most cloud infrastructure is quick and easy to provision and set up to be easy to self-administerSupporting the “self service” nature of the Cloud, there tends to be a lot of automation to make this easy for the userBenefits to the business – what does this mean to the business that implement the Cloud as part of a comprehensive IT strategy Increased agility, lower cost and better use of resources
  • Move the stale desktop market to the cloud just as the server market has happenedDesktone’s cloud DaaS model eliminates cost and complexityDesktop clouds give enterprises the full benefits of VDI, without the costs or risksEnterprises outsource the deployment and operationsDaaS reduces the technical expertise required

  • 40. Key Findings – Standard Windows 7 Desktop
    ©2011 Desktone, Inc. All rights reserved.
    • Virtual desktops deliver savings upwards of 36% over desktop PC costs
    • 41. Cloud desktops deliver further savings of 20+% over on-premises VDI
    • 42. On-premises VDI delivers savings over PC’s on labor but it is offset by the significant extra infrastructure required
    • 43. The ability to offload endpoints or extend them can deliver $250+ per year per desktop
    • 44. The performance requirements for VDI necessitate adoption of external storage which adds substantial costs
