VMware Telling It Like It Is – 10 VDI Lessons from the Real World


"Don’t sugarcoat it, tell it to me straight."  People are always saying that, but almost never when they’re expecting delight. The truth is, if you want drastic change, you need to set your expectations high and anticipate discoveries and difficulties along the way. When it comes to deploying and managing desktops, VDI has dramatically changed the way we do almost everything.  And while it has already given us so much flexibility in our environment, virtualizing the end user experience and getting IT people to do things in new ways has not been trivial or pain free. 

Here at Menlo College, we have a campus-wide VDI initiative based on VMware View and Unidesk desktop layering technology. Ultimately, we will provide students with "anytime, anywhere" access to lab applications and full, personalized desktops for faculty and staff. We will also significantly reduce our operational costs for desktop management because, with layering, we can support all our use cases, deliver applications in a modular way, and reduce calls to the help desk. Our "all-in" approach has been key to our ROI rationale, but different from many other implementations where only a small number of use cases are supported.
