In general, client computer virtualization can be divided into desktop virtualization and application virtualization. Desktop virtualization involves switching the desktop environment to a data center where the user can proactively monitor desktops.

The solution facilitates administration, extends the service life of the workstation, reduces overall costs, increases data security and speeds up application operation.

Desktop virtualization

Application virtualization involves centralizing user applications to servers in the data center. These servers run applications that would otherwise be installed on user workstations, and only the app image travels to the user. This drastically reduces the time to deploy a new application or upgrade an existing one. Savings are also being made on the user-side hardware recovery process, as the resources needed to execute applications are provided on the server side.

The traditional way of installing applications has become extremely complex and expensive. IT is in constant struggle to update and upgrade existing applications to many workstations within the organization. Meanwhile, apps and data found on workstations are unsafe and create conflicts, causing the app itself to work slowly or even crash the app frequently. As a consequence, IT costs are constantly rising.

The key functionalities of Desktop virtualization are:

  • Self-service applications

  • Any device, over any network, to any app

  • High defined user experience

  • Security

  • Drastic reduction in maintenance and administration costs
