  22. 22. Do not compare desktop virtualisation to server virtualisation, they interact with hardware differently Not ll desktop brokers are th same N t all d kt b k the Not all hypervisors are the same Users do not care how many servers you are not running because of this project Users want a better experience than they get now Get desktop virtualisation wrong and everyone will know about it p g y Get server virtualisation wrong and only a pocket of people know about it Desktop Interaction is different to Server Interaction with hardware Desktop Interaction is different to Server Interaction with hardware
  23. 23. USERS: What they do, How they do it, When they do it
  24. 24. Firstly not all desktops are candidates Don’t just ask the question how many users can I get on a box…. Guess work is not an option Objective tests are critical Work with the user, they need to feel part of the process Combination of technical and business consulting is needed to ensure success g Partially automated and partially manual There is a big human element to VDI, don’t forget it.
