  • Make VDI Personal(VDI for Everyone)Virtualization Deep Dive Day 2011
  • The Promise of Hosted Virtual Desktops
    Simplify desktop management
    More efficient, centralized monitoring,provisioning, patching, repair
    Improve business agility
    Workers access desktops from anyoffice, home PC, or pad
    Deliver new apps faster
    Reduce capital costs
    Thin clients use less power than PCs(5W vs. 80W) and last 3-6 years longer
  • VDI Reality: Limited to Narrow Use Cases
    Labs
    Call Centers
    Offshore Development
  • Why? Non-Persistent VDI Works Great!
    Desktop customizations thrown out after each use
    Desktop reverts to pristine state
    The few required apps can be delivered easily
    Storage can be reduced through block-based cloning
    Single shared image provides “patch-once” simplicity
    But they’re a relatively small % of total desktops
  • Persistence Adds Cost & Complexity
