Virtual Desktops and the Pano System
Virtualized desktops, running a standard Windows operating system but hosted on centralized servers, promise to radically reduce the ever-increasing increasing drain on IT resources from deploying and supporting desktop computing. By consolidating these virtual desktops in the data center, benefits including improving IT productivity, increased data security, reduced user downtime and even significant power conservation can be realized.
Pano Logic® is the first company to offer a complete, purpose-built solution for virtual desktops combining a unique zero-client endpoint device with centralized tools designed specifically for the tasks of deployment and managing virtual desktops.
This whitepaper explains the technology and architecture used in server-based virtual desktop computing, exploring some of the benefits and challenges seen by IT organizations adopting the technology. The required hardware and software components are also discussed, using the Pano System™ as an illustration of how they can be combined in different scenarios to deliver the unique benefits of virtual desktops.
