- Presentation Summary:
Before the proliferation of desktop PCs, computing resources were centralized with a mainframe in the data center with only dumb terminals placed out on end user’s desks. With the arrival of low-cost PC hardware and the evolution of both the Windows operating system and a broad ecosystem of supporting application vendors, computing became decentralized and end-user productivity often improved with the wealth of available software. However, dealing with the resulting diversity and managing those distributed PCs has become an ever-increasing challenge and resource drain for IT staff and budgets.
In an effort to control desktop support and IT labor costs, many IT departments are turning once again to a more centralized configuration, while still delivering robust Windows desktop computing to their end users. The right desktop virtualization solution can accomplish both of these goals, provided it is based on true zero clients that completely centralize all management, processing, and troubleshooting into the data center.
