  32. 32. How Customers Use VMware VDI Desktop PC Replacement Replace traditional PCs with thin clients, repurposed PCs or less costly desktop hardware. Address short desktop lifecycles. Simplify moves, adds & changes (MACs) because the desktop images are administered in corporate data center. Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity Eliminate unplanned desktop downtime through VMware Infrastructure 3 DRS and HA capabilities. Simplify backup and desktop disaster recovery because desktops are located in corporate data center and can leverage shared storage technology. Transactional Office Workers with Security Needs Secure all sensitive personal records or intellectual property running on laptops in host country data center. Control access to centralized desktop images through Microsoft AD. Provide complete desktop isolation. Ensure all sessions are fully encrypted using VMware VDI’s optional Security Server.
