  4. 4. Trends and Analysts for the future of Desktop• The way businesses design, build, and deploy desktops has been relatively unchanged for years.• A process plagued with: • productivity loss • high security risks • constant asset turnover • and with an enormous price tag.• Desktop virtualization is poised to make significant strides to: • improve this situation • ultimately transform how IT manages desktops • transform how end-users consume applications, choose endpoint devices, and increase their productivity.Source: Enterprise Strategy Group, 2010
  5. 5. Trends and Analysts for the future of Desktop • Gartner expects the preferred client for HVD deployment to be refurbished desk- based PCs and gradually Thin Clients will replace PCs • “Hosted Virtual Desktops (HVDs) have great potential”Source: Gartner (Nov 2010) – Forecast: Hosted Virtual Desktops, Worldwide (2010-2014) (2010-
  6. 6. Challenges with Desktop Virtualization today Challenges Performance and Scalability implementingEnterprise class User Experience: Can I guarantee same QoS for each and every user.Virtual Desktop Poor performance in terms of bad user experience is a major issue Solutions Implementing few desktops is easy but can I do it for my enterprise Capacity of underlying infrastructure in a datacenter Is my server/network/storage ready? Can we guarantee the SLA in a cost effective manner? Data Center security: How can I bring desktops and keep other apps secure Manageability Paradigm shift: Managing desktops in VMs vs Managing physical desktops Will the old ways of server manageability help in the future where thousands of desktops are hosted out of the DC?
  7. 7. Changing the game in Desktop Virtualization • Two market leaders joining forces • Complimentary vision for desktop virtualization evolution • Fully validated and tested joint solution • Unified technical support • Makes enterprise-wide adoption far easier
  8. 8. Transform Windows desktop computing into anon-demand service for any user on any device
  9. 9. Traditional • Limited workplace flexibilityDesktops • Security restricts mobility and devices Complex. • Moves, adds, changes take days Inflexible. • Constant refresh with limited gains Hard to Secure.
