What is desktop virtualization?
Desktop virtualization is a technique that permits creating and storing several desktops for users on one host, which is housed in the data center or the cloud. This accomplishes through a hypervisor that sits over the host server hardware, allowing virtual desktops to benefit from the computing power of the hardware of the server that runs them. The hypervisor makes VMs that emulate the desktop environments of the user. These can contain different operating platforms, applications, customized settings, and user data. Users can remotely access and manage desktops from any device.
Desktop virtualization allows users to manage their desktops individually in a single central server. Users may connect to the main server via either a LAN or WAN connection or via the Internet.
How Does Desktop Virtualization Work?
Various methods can accomplish the virtualization of desktops; however, there are two primary varieties based on whether your operating system runs locally or remotely. Local desktop virtualization operates using the OS on a client device by using hardware virtualization. The entire processing and workload perform on local hardware. Local desktop virtualization can work effectively when users don’t require an ongoing network connection. It also meets the requirements of applications by using locally-based system resources. However, processing can perform locally, and you can’t use local desktop virtualization to transfer VMs or resources over networks with thin users (users) and mobile gadgets. Remote desktop virtualization operates in a server-based computing environment. It allows users to run applications and use systems via servers. However, all interactions with users perform on a device like tablets, laptops, or mobile.
HPE GreenLake for Virtual Desktop
When conducting business away from the office, workers may use any tablet, smartphone, or PC–trusted or not–as is typical in today’s bring-your-own-device, work-from-home environment. With the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), it is possible for employees to are not required to store sensitive company information on personal devices, which could steal easily, lost, or altered. HPE GreenLake for VDI is a secure VDI on-premises, custom-made to users’ requirements. It can help you reduce upfront costs, reduce the time-to-value, and expand quickly to match resources to the demand.
It doesn’t matter if you’re trying out virtual desktop infrastructures for the first time or if your existing VDI environment is challenging many applications and user requirements. The HPE GreenLake platform can deliver the security performance, efficiency, and compliance advantages that come with an on-premise VDI solution while retaining the simplicity and flexibility of the cloud.
HPE is a platform that supports, operates, and controls the system to provide high performance and reliability while ensuring complete control over crucial desktop and application environments. The endpoint device can be a regular PC, a thin device designed for clients, or even a mobile device. HPE GreenLake provides the standard desktop experience specifically designed to meet the demands of the majority of users. You can select the mix of both users and users based on your requirements and have the ability to change and expand the mix to suit your specific business needs.
