Desktop Virtualization Briefing

2 hours
Desktop virtualization provides the ability to access Windows and Linux desktop environments from any type of endpoint device: PC, mobile device, thin client, etc. When we make the "desktop experience" something that end users access from anything, anywhere - instead of something tied to a physical device in a specific location - your employees are empowered to be more agile and productive. With security enhancements inherent in virtualized desktops, you are better able to keep data and users protected. With intelligent decoupling of the OS, apps, and data, you can reduce user downtime and expedite provisioning and recovery.


In this briefing, WWT will discuss the features and benefits of desktop virtualization. We offer insight on the best use cases for virtual desktops and where they are not appropriate. We will explore security considerations and benefits, along with implications for both on-premise and cloud-hosted implementations. This is a vendor-agnostic discussion; however, we can focus your briefing on specific products and corresponding solution ecosystems, if desired.
