Desktop virtualization has become prevalent with the rising trend of cloud computing combined with the requirements for greater mobility, security and versatility in working environments. A need for easier and flexible workplace management and conversely end-users wanting greater experience has coalesced into a win-win solution for both parties.
The technology of virtual desktops has been around for more than half a century starting with multiple operating systems on a machine. The evolution of virtual technologies is continuously meeting business needs with increasing dynamism in product and services efficiencies.
Many benefits related to cost and maintenance of virtual desktop environments has made it a commercially attractive technology. As desktop operating systems execute from a data center with end-users accessing applications using thin-client devices, there is greater control and manageability applications in use as well as the whole user experience. Desktop virtualization has eased administrative functionalities while allowing for greater security levels.
