Similar to the proliferation of servers in the data center, the increased use of desktops, laptops and other devices has become the norm for most companies. This creates a number of challenges including:
The idea behind client virtualization is to decouple hardware and software components so that isolation can occur. Security can also be achieved since no data is actually stored on the end-user's device. All data can be securely stored in the data center, enabling both high availability and disaster recovery capabilities.
Client virtualization delivers multiple benefits, including:
When considering client virtualization, it's important to understand the following:
An effective client virtualization solution makes use of multiple technologies and components, including:
Consider the end-user experience and all the devices they will use: notebooks, desktops, thin clients, tablet PCs and mobile devices. For stringent security requirements, look for smart-card readers, biometric scanners, two-factor authentication tokens, etc.
In a hosted model, Windows can be run on blade PCs or workstations in the data center, or in virtual machines on a Hypervisor. Alternatively, Windows images can be hosted on a server and the OS streamed to existing desktops.
Application streaming focuses on isolation, which installs the application locally on a desktop, but isolates it from other applications and processes.
The licensing impact of virtualized OS and applications can be complex. A knowledgeable software licensing specialist can help you ensure compliance.
Some vendors do not support their application on a virtual machine, so this should be taken into consideration when evaluating virtualization strategies.
Each operating system and device, as well as access methodology (DSL, cable modem, dial-up, etc.), should be included during the planning and design phase.
