Desktop Virtualization Software: Catering The Changing Work Environment
The mobile work force and the globalized environment in nearly every corporate sector calls for the high levels of data security. Since with the mobile work force, it is necessary to provide a scope for availability and access of data and corporate information form any location and form any device, the organizations need to ensure that the data accessed is through a safe network and will not cause any data leaks or hacking of information. In other words, organizations should look for methods to provide a virtual desktop virtual desktop to the users irrespective of the location time and device.
Desktop virtualization is a process, which a remote client device is provided an access to an entire information system or the environment itself irrespective of the hardware configuration and operating system used by the client. The model allows access to multiple subscribers to a centrally located server through virtual machines. The main server may be operated from a residence, business, or data center. The geographically scattered users are connected to the central machine through a local area network, a wide area network, or the Internet.
The IT enterprises that have forayed into providing desktop virtualization platform for client organizations make use of desktop virtualization software which enables a centralized desktop management to deliver secure virtual desktops to be run from any machine. Such practices result in significant cost savings as well as achieving high levels of customer satisfaction. Desktop virtualization software creates a flexible and efficient IT infrastructure with an ability to respond faster to current and changing organizational needs.
Desktop Virtualization software enables configuring, provisioning, delivering and managing virtual desktops from a single console. This reduces the operational expenditure and improves the operational efficiency of the IT staff. The virtual workspaces thus created are delivered to users on-demand through various LAN, WAN, Internet, or even offline. Consisting of two main components, the manager and client, the software shows the flexibility of browser-based web applications. The manager component delivers the web-based application for the virtual desktops and stores the virtual desktops in devices, with an authentication through an active directory. The client component on the other hand delivers a virtual desktop on-demand for execution.
The desktop virtualization software provides a platform to deliver a reliable and scalable solution that enables enterprises and service providers to swiftly and efficiently streamline the lifecycle of virtual workspaces. The other benefits of this software includes reduced downtime in the event of server or client hardware-failures, cost savings in deploying of new applications, secure remote access and management of the enterprise desktop environment.
