Cloud based systems have enormous power and resources. For many users, it makes sense to create a large number of virtual desktops on the cloud that operators can connect to using a thin client system. You could create such systems using a public or a private cloud and reap the benefits of lower costs along with greater stability and ease of management and maintenance.
Virtual desktops offer greater security because no data is stored or saved locally. All data is stored centrally under the control of the cloud services administrator, enhancing the overall security. Users can login from anywhere and experience the same desktop with all applications in the same state as they were when the user last logged out. This allows great flexibility in workspace creation. In addition to being able to work from anywhere, businesses also value the disaster recovery features that a virtual desktop environment gives them.
How does this work? In a typical virtual desktop environment, a special software application called a hypervisor sits between the physical hardware and the operating system where the virtual desktops run. There are many issues involved in successfully running a virtual desktop environment and ensuring peak performance is an important consideration.
Often businesses have complex licensing issues. Based on correct choices, you can ensure that costs are minimized. Performance management is also a specialized subject and you need expert help. There are also multiple options available and an evaluation of your needs and work requirements have to be considered to decide which solutions are right for you. Rarely will an in-house IT staff have this kind of expertise.
