Virtualize, Centralize, Optimize


This post has been a long time coming. It’s basically one of the core philosophies we live by at Desktone and it happens to run contrary to everything else you’ve read about virtual desktops and state separation. At the core of the argument is the premise that deploying virtual desktops and achieving state separation in client operating environments are two fundamentally different objectives. I’m not going to claim that they aren’t related and that ultimately they will cross paths. However, I do believe that viewing them as one in the same has led enterprises down the wrong path and that if we don’t start looking at the two as separate endeavors, virtual desktop computing will never reach its full potential. For some more background on this topic, please see my earlier post on “The state of stateless computing”.

Due to the messaging of ISVs and the persistent repetition of that positioning by analysts, press and bloggers, our industry has convinced itself that state separation within Windows client environments is a pre-requisite and absolute requirement for a successful VDI or DaaS production deployment. Desktone does not believe in this philosophy with respect to DaaS and strongly feels that this messaging has been one of the key technical obstacles to server-hosted virtual desktop deployment in general.
