Reality Check: Scoping Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (Desktop Virtualization)

Virtual Desktop started as a simple concept: take the operating system, applications and data normally found on a business user’s physical desktop computer, and put them somewhere else.? Somewhere else could be inside a virtual machine on a hypervisor platform, but regardless of where the bits of data are relocated, the key is that the data is no longer sitting on the physical desktop PC at the user’s location.? Instead of the user touching the physical computer running their applications and holding their data, the user now connects to their desktop remotely.? The requirements and technologies may vary for remote access, management and monitoring, but the idea is always the same – put the running applications and data, or the workload, in a safer, more secure location – the datacenter – on servers most likely managed by a server team.? Sounds simple enough in theory, but so does mixing oil and water.
