RES Software and the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP)
Virtualization has been making rapid inroads into all aspects of business computing. Whether it is at the server, client, OS, storage or application level, the benefits of consolidating infrastructure, greater IT agility and increased management capability have resulted in a dramatic reduction in total cost of ownership. However, if we look deeper at each of these solutions, not one of them is a ?silver bullet? to increased management in and of themselves. They are a step on the evolutionary technology ladder that complements, simplifies and increases the management capabilities of the solutions around them.
RES Software has introduced an evolutionary approach to managing user configurations. Instead of a disjointed set of policies and user preferences that only address a single configuration context, RES Software transforms user specific state into a dynamic desktop that changes as the user’s computing situation changes.
RES Software evolves the overall manageability of the client and shatters the glass ceiling of monolithic PC management paradigms through the RES Dynamic Desktop Studio and Virtual Desktop Extender technologies. The net effect on management efficiency and agility is exponential when RES Software is used in parallel with other virtualization, optimization and management technologies, resulting in an even lower total cost of ownership for the desktop.
An example of this ?better together? strategy is utilizing RES Dynamic Desktop Studio and Virtual Desktop Extender with the Microsoft® Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP). In this document we will explore both of these technologies and how the combination of the two results in a strategic approach to management where the sum of the solution is greater than its parts.
