Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) radically improves IT administration, but it adds significant infrastructure cost while introducing new limitations on mobility and performance. This session demonstrates how client virtualisation delivers all the benefits of server-hosted VDI while delivering better mobility and performance for less than 1/10th the cost.
Desktop virtualisation presents an opportunity to radically improve both IT operations and end user productivity. Activities such as operating system migrations or the deployment of new business-critical applications can be delivered faster and more easily using desktop virtualisation than traditional PC management systems. It also offers new opportunities to improve IT service to business by enabling increased workforce mobility, improving data security, creating remote working opportunities, and offering employees increased choice of computing device or run multiple desktops on a single PC.While Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) radically improves IT administration, it adds significant infrastructure cost and introduces new limitations on mobility and performance. Desktop virtualisation does not have to be limited by these challenges. There are now hundreds of companies reaping the advantages of desktop virtualisation without extensive capital outlay, without wholesale reworking of existing desktop management practices, and without a compromising user experience. This session demonstrates how client virtualisation delivers all the benefits of server-hosted VDI while delivering better mobility and performance for less than 1/10th the cost.
Visitors to the session will learn about a viable alternative to both traditional systems management tools and infrastructure-heavy VDI implementations. This session will identify the key pain points we face today and how desktop virtualisation via type-1 hypervisors can be a more effective way to reduce costs and increase efficiencies.
