How User Virtualization Enables Desktop Virtualization


As desktop virtualization matures we are seeing that it will ultimately be delivered as either a client virtual desktop or a hosted virtual desktop (HVD). Most likely it will be a combination of both, and mixed in with more traditional physical desktops rather than as a complete replacement for the traditional PC.  This article will focus on HVD as it is the only mainstream method of desktop virtualization available on the market today. However, the information provided here is just as relevant to client virtual desktops which we see becoming a reality in late 2010.

Today, there are (at a high level) two models with which to deploy HVDs. The first model is commonly known as “one-to-one,” the second as “one-to-many.”

For a quick overview, one-to-one is the method by which each user has their individual complete virtual machine (VM) running in the datacenter.  This is considered as the full desktop (including all applications) being stored and executed centrally as opposed to running locally on a physical desktop or laptop/notebook device. This model has already been adopted across many organizations today by a means of a physical to virtual (P2V) conversion, such that a user’s existing physical desktop has been applied into the virtual world, and all previous physical operating systems (OSs) and associated applications are now running from the datacenter, virtually.
