Green Your IT Enterprise In 2010

  1. 1.
  2. 2. Today’s IT challenges when it comes to the enterprise:<br />Energy Efficiency: inefficient data centers and computing environments.<br />Management: supporting corporate machines and assets day-to-day.<br />Security: assuring data and machine security independent of location.<br />Compliance:ensuring that machines are compliant with corporate and regulatory requirements.<br />Access/Changing Workforce:providing users “anytime, anywhere” access to data and applications.<br />Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity:ensuring continuity in the event of machine loss, disaster, or workforce interruption.<br />

  11. 11. Desktop Virtualization<br />The future of the desktop!<br />11<br />
  12. 12. Client-side virtualization consists of two broad sets of technologies<br />Desktop virtualization<br />Application virtualization<br />Local desktop virtualization<br />Local application virtualization<br />Hosted desktop virtualization<br />Hosted application virtualization<br />
  13. 13. Definition: desktop virtualization<br /><ul><li>A computing environment consisting of an operating system, applications, and associated data that is abstracted from the user’s PC</li></li></ul><li>Desktop Virtualization - Local & Hosted<br />
  14. 14. Definition: Application Virtualization<br /><ul><li>An application that is abstracted from the user’s OS and runs in isolation from other applications
  15. 15. Hosted application virtualization is a new term for legacy server-based computing.</li></li></ul><li>Application Virtualization - Local & Hosted<br />
  16. 16. Agenda<br />What is “server virtualization”?<br />What is “client virtualization”?<br />Different users require different technologies.<br />What is a “Green PC”?<br />Strengths (and weaknesses) of client virtualization<br />Recommendations<br />
  17. 17. Today&apos;s users fall into three basic categories:<br />Task-Based Workers<br />Limited apps and limited performance requirements<br />Easiest for IT to manage — require limited customization<br />Knowledge Workers<br />Standard office apps and medium performance requirements<br />Harder for IT to manage — app conflicts are commonplace<br />Power Users<br />Compute-intensive apps and high-performance requirements<br />Hardest for IT to manage — require full control of their PCs<br />
  18. 18. Additional attributes to consider when thinking about your users<br />Mobile<br />Users who are away from their desks more than 30% of the time<br />Typically have limited or no Internet connectivity<br />Remote<br />Employees who generally work at home or in a branch office<br />Typically have persistent Internet connection; however, connection speed and quality are not guaranteed<br />Third Party<br />Workers who are “untrusted” or “unmanaged” and don’t use a corporate PC<br />Machines are not provisioned by the hiring organization and can&apos;t be controlled by IT<br />
  19. 19. Scenario-Based Computing: Finding The Right Virtualization Model For Your Users <br />
  20. 20. Case study: Large Hotel Chain<br />Problem:<br />In front desk operations, reservations and check-ins are essential (minutes can mean millions of dollars).<br />It needs to streamline the process of application delivery.<br />It needs a solution that can scale to 300,000 desktops worldwide.<br />The benefits of virtualizing applications are:<br />Cutting the time it takes to package applications in half <br />Decreasing testing times <br />Decreasing support costs <br />
  21. 21. Case study: Federal Government<br />Problem:<br />The government agency must support a large mobile workforce.<br />It must protect data that is vital to national security.<br />The agency is responsible for supporting 250,000 devices in several locations.<br />The benefits of virtualizing applications are:<br />Centralizing the agency’s most valuable data so that it doesn’t live out on the user devices <br /> Helping with Windows 7 migration <br />Increasing productivity by delivering applications to users, regardless of location <br />
  22. 22. Case study: Major University<br />Problem:<br />Universities run computer labs, which are subject to a large body of students and faculty. Every year requires a software/hardware refresh.<br />It needs to streamline the process of application delivery.<br />Increase security, flexibility, and reliability.<br />It needs a solution that can scale to 150,000 desktops campuswide.<br />The benefits of virtualizing applications are:<br />Cutting the time it takes to package applications in half.<br />Decreasing testing times.<br />Decreasing support costs.<br />Increasing security, flexibility, and reliability.<br />
  23. 23. Case study: Healthcare Company<br />Problem:<br />It is a highly regulated industry — must increase compliance.<br />It has 5,300 users that need anywhere access to sensitive data.<br />It needs to streamline its management of the PC environment.<br />The benefits of virtualizing desktops are:<br />Lowering support costs — no longer sending technicians for desk visits<br />Reducing provisioning time<br />Centralizing data — HIPAA data no longer on endpoints <br /> Decreasing power consumption by 72% — thanks to thin clients<br />
