PC Desktop Virtualization
PC desktop virtualization-often dubbed thin-client computing-is not a new concept.
Commercial desktop virtualization goes back some 15 years to the Microsoft® Terminal Server Edition of Windows NT 4.0. While the IBM® Virtual Client Solution, is not a revolutionary new product, it is a radically different solution to an old problem: How to cut computing costs with centralized management and not infringe on the user's personal control of the computing environment.
If a virtual server is a good idea, why not extend that notion to a virtual desktop PC? In this white paper, learn how users can retain full control of the look-and-feel of their desktop environment. In addition, users can continue to enjoy all of the functionality associated with personal control, including audio and USB. In short, they retain full control of the logical resource.
