Cost Savings with Centralized Virtual Desktops
Centralized virtual desktops optimize the efficiency, security and flexibility of any PC environment. They help enterprises of all sizes achieve a wide array of strategic goals, including significant cost reductions, reducing server sprawl and the carbon footprint, and simplifying operations. While virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) offers great promise, it is always important to justify a strategic investment.
Are the claims such as "50 percent TCO savings" or "Save up to 40 percent" true? While the market is too young for hard data on TCO reduction, there is growing evidence that centralized, virtual desktops do fulfill the promise.
This white paper will look at the current cost of PC management which has been well-documented by industry experts. It will explore how VDI can significantly reduce operational costs, and how TCO can vary depending on industry and user requirements. Finally, there will be a discussion of acquisition costs and how some of these can be avoided or deferred so that a virtual desktops solution can be implemented using existing PC replacement budgets.
