Desktop Virtualization: Overcoming Five Real-World Challenges

Cover

The business case for desktop virtualization is compelling, especially when a large or variable number of end-users work using similar OS and applications platforms. Organizations can unlock substantial improvements in operating costs, security, management effectiveness and business agility by mastering a few predictable challenges:

  • User expectations for dramatic improvements in boot time, mobility, and support
  • WAN latencies that can compromise desktop responsiveness
  • Provisioning and patch management issues that can add data-center complexity
  • Requirements for rapid scalability--up or down--to meet changes in demand
  • Single-vendor lock-ins that compromise flexibility and cost-effectiveness

The Citrix XenApp™ virtualization platform assembles desktops dynamically from OS and application images, with additional customization to individual user requirements. XenApp delivers the technical and business performance needed to meet the challenge of real-world desktop virtualization.
