The What - Hosted Virtual Desktops (HVD)Hosted Virtual Desktop (HVD) - Its your very own private Windows PC, thatyou can connect to from anywhere on the planet. Jump from tablet to laptopto phone and keep working without missing a beat.
The What - Hosted Virtual Desktops (HVD)HVD enables a centralized desktop strategy that allows for quick and secureaccess to applications and desktops. HVD’s can be accessed from any network-connected device, including new PCs, older hardware, and thin clients. Inaddition, all data and applications are stored centrally, ensuring a higher levelof data security and helping simplify regulatory compliance.
The What - Hosted Virtual Desktops (HVD)When using HVD, you can present users with an entire desktop environment orjust the individual applications. Data is centrally stored and can be accessed byhosted virtual desktops or SaaS applications. From a user perspective, theseapplications are integrated seamlessly. They look, feel and behave like localapplications

The Flavors of VDINon-Persistentaka statelessThe major disadvantage of non-persistent desktops is that anycustomizations made by users and any applications that aredelivered outside of the base image are lost after each desktopreboot.• simple roll-out and update of basic images• guaranteed to be 100% identical• user always has the same (clean) desktop• less effort due to the standardization of images.• zero Windows configuration drift• less storage is required because a single base operatingsystem image can be shared across many desktopsTask WorkersKiosksCall CentersEDU & Training
The Flavors of VDIPersistentaka statefulThe major disadvantage of persistent desktops is the high cost.Persistent desktops also offer little operational cost savings, sincethey are managed one at a time like physical PCs, using the sameagent-based PC management tools.• users have freedom to install software within the desktop• personalization and settings maintain through reboots• least operational upheaval when migrating from PC model• users are assigned dedicated virtual machines & customresources which remain the same every time they loginDevelopers/ProgrammersDesignersEngineering CADFinancial Reporting

Why Application Virtualization?Application Server FarmSeveral different devicesInstall once, deliver anywhereSmaller storage footprintEasy application deployment 1 to 10,000Zero Application Drift – SandboxedSeamless updates & patchesConsistent end-user experience Security & Compliance
Application VirtualizationApplications are executed on the local devicebut only certain components are downloaded,making it possible to function without anetwork connection.Remote ApplicationsRun on a remote server rather than on a clientdevice. Agile DRApplication StreamingRun non-native apps.. i.e Quickbooks on iPadApplications can be faster using more robustCPU/GPU in addition to the proximity ofcorporate data

Executives in the Field“As a remote executive, I struggled every time I needed toaccess the company’s intranet, which forced me to VPN intothe network. I also kept data on my local device becausetrying to access it over my broadband connection was tooslow. Some coworkers did the same and lost data due to avirus, thankfully I was luckier. ““Since moving to a virtual desktop, I’m able to use any device.I’m able to work from any location. And best of all, I don’thave to worry about copying my data and applications onto allof my personal devices. I paid for these devices; I don’t wantwork to clutter up my personal space.”
