DESKTOP VIRTUALIZATION DEFINITION (continued): …  Internet.Desktop virtualization offers advantages over the traditional model, in which every computer operates as a completely self-contained unit with its own operating system, peripherals and application programs. Overall expenses are reduced because resources can be shared and allocated to users on an as-needed basis. The integrity of user information is improved because all data is maintained and backed up in the data center. Conflicts in software are minimized by reducing the total number of programs stored on any given machine.Despite the sharing of resources, all users can customize and …
