    The Realities of Today’s Enterprise Desktop

    Desktops are Enterprise Infrastructure

    As distributed end-points, desktops are hardest to secure, manage and maintain

    Enterprise IT is faced with a massive desktop refresh cycle (called “Vista”)

    IT budgets are still under pressure

  • What is driving the change ?

  • Apply Virtualization to the Desktop

    Transform the DesktopOS and apps are decoupled from the physical device

    Desktops run as virtual machines in secure data center

    Transform static desktop to a stateless virtual desktop

    Connect to virtual desktop from thick or thin clients

  • Offline View: Best User Experience

    An offline desktop is a VMware hosted virtual machine wrapped in a security and manageability layer.

    Offline View enables designated end-users to relocate their Virtual Machines to a local physical computer – and back.

    Enables administrators to extend the security and encryption policies of the data center to the end-users local computer.

    Full experience for end-users with high latency environments or heavy multi-media requirements.

    Can out perform any protocol on the market.
