Desktop virtualization provides IT administrators an innovative method to provision and manage the Windows Operating System (OS). By separating the OS, applications, user profiles, and user data from the underlying PC hardware, and by running it as a virtual machine on high-powered servers in a data center, organizations can deploy and manage each component independently in response to changing user needs and business requirements. With virtualization, users can access their virtual desktops from any device, anywhere, and get the same or better experience than if the OS and applications were loaded in the traditional manner. The qualified staff at Computer F/x can help you determine if this solution is ideal for your organization’s structure and needs.
