Enabling Dynamic Virtual Client Computing with Intel® vPro™ Technology
In this paper we discuss an emerging direction for Intel® vPro™ technology called Dynamic Virtual Client (DVC) computing. DVC addresses the needs of IT organizations and end-users by enabling client computing diversity across alternative computing models. DVC is a client virtualization architecture combining hardware- and software-enabled features based on the foundation elements of Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) and on Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT). This article examines emerging computing usages and identifies key gaps and challenges associated with realizing client virtualization. We expand on the Intel vPro technology that enables DVC and examine the underpinnings associated with Intel’s core manageability, security and virtualization technologies. Finally, we present a vision for client virtualization and discuss future DVC solution integration opportunities.
