Why VDI Makes Sense for Hard-Core UNIX and Linux Engineering Applications
An effective way to virtualize users’ desktops is to physically “move” each user’s desktop OS and applications off the physical desktops and into the data center. This method allows users to access their desktops via a remoting protocol and remotely control their own data center-based desktops from anywhere at any time.
This paper discusses data center-based desktop virtualization, including its advantages, disadvantages and how it can be used to deliver high-end UNIX and Linux engineering environments on demand. Read on to find out why this approach makes sense for UNIX and Linux engineering applications.
