Application and Desktop virtualisation employs a set of mainstream technologies to deliver applications, desktops and data to users regardless of the device they are connecting from or the type of network link they are using.
Desktop virtualisation decouples the operating system, applications and data from the underlying PC hardware and moves it to the datacentre. By centralising these components to the datacentre, the user's desktop environment can be centrally managed and the data safely secured. Instead of IT staff working with many static desktops at the endpoints, IT staff can manage and update just a few images in the datacentre. Any updates to the operating system or applications are applied just once at a single location. Once completed, the desktops and applications are delivered on a customised basis to meet the performance, security and mobility requirements of each individual user.
