Streaming and Virtual Hosted Desktop Study: Phase 2
Intel IT conducted an internal technology evaluation to determine how using the most up-to-date hardware and software, such as Intel® Xeon® processor X5570 and Microsoft Windows 7, affects server and network utilization as well as the performance of streamed and virtual hosted desktop (VHD) compute models. This study followed a previous investigation, published in 2008, that compared streaming and VHD. Our current findings indicate that streaming provides better server loading and a more positive overall user experience with new Intel® Xeon® processors.
