Is Desktop Virtualization the Next Big Thing?
What’s drivingthe change ?
Technology Evolution:VDI to VMware View
Success & Momentum of Virtualization in Data Center

Low-Risk, Non-critical Apps
Physical servers will double over the next two years and number of virtual machines will grow by 150%
Limited to Testing &
At this point, which best describes the role of server virtualization in your IT infrastructure?
Non-hardware/software costs dominatetotal PC costs
Hardware and software make up less than30% of total PC total cost of ownership

Physical Desktop TCO
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.
Offline View Demo
Traditional VDI VDI using Linked Clones
Using snapshots and writable clones
View Composer (Using Linked Clones)
Image Management and Separation
View Composer combines two virtual disks
Highly Managed OS Disk
Reduce provisioning time enabling creation on-the-fly
Roll out updates and patches by creating a new snapshot
User Data Disk
Persistent disk to store user data and settings
OS and user disks can be on different storage
View + User Data Disks

Future of Client Computing
The future of client computing
• IT managers faced with complexity: desktops vsnotebooks, Windows vs Mac, Win32 apps vs web apps
• Users want their desktop to follow them, not the device
• IT needs to provide centralized management for all desktops
• VDI is the first step towards the universal client
