Virtual Computer Paper: Top 10 Myths of Desktop Virtualization

The Myths…

1.     Desktop virtualization is costly and requires big infrastructure investments

2.     Desktop virtualization is complicated and it can take months to set up

3.     The PC is dead – thin clients and tablets are the future

4.     Desktop virtualization does not deliver rapid Return on Investment (ROI)

5.     Desktop virtualization does not work for laptops or offline users

6.     Virtual desktops running on clients are not as secure as server-hosted VDI

7.     Virtual desktops on clients do not deliver the management benefits of VDI

8.     Desktop virtualization does not work for unified communications

9.     Bare metal and type-1 hypervisors are effectively the same

10.  VDI is better for business continuity than virtual desktops running on clients

The Myths Debunked…

There are many flavors of Desktop Virtualization and what’s true for one type is not always true for another. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), which hosts virtual desktops in a data center, is one approach that has sparked a lot of the myths noted above, but VDI is not the only way to virtualize the desktop.

Intelligent Desktop Virtualization (IDV), a phrase coined by Intel®, describes a different approach to desktop virtualization. Where VDI centralizes both management and execution of virtual desktops, IDV maintains the benefits of centralized management while securely leveraging the compute power of end-point devices to deliver better performance, mobility, and cost of ownership while reducing complexity.
