Real World Desktop Virtualization - Why Processors Matter
In the old days, just a couple of years ago, the typical end-user sat at their desk, turned on their workstation, and started working with one operating system, a handful of prescribed applications, and a set of files that were carefully stored on the hard drive. Now end-users are highly mobile, collaborate with colleagues in and out of the office, and require constant access to a wider-range of applications and shared files. All this sets the stage for desktop virtualization which provides the access and end-user experience required for productivity along with the capabilities required for sound IT management.
The end-user and IT benefits of desktop virtualization are realized by shifting processing power from the workstation to the data center. Finding a server/processor platform that fully supports virtual desktop environments is key to success. Dell and Intel provide such a platform with servers, processors, and storage that are designed to run virtual environments.
