Gavriella Schuster share some tips and considerations to help you build a successful desktop virtualization roadmap. The guidance builds upon the recent discussions had at the Microsoft Management Summit and the Desktop Virtualization Hour. Here’re some key considerations to get highest ROI from desktop virtualization: » To Brad’s point determine a common way of integrating and leveraging all different forms of virtualization including application, hardware, VDI and session virtualization. A great first step is to start at app level. By virtualizing your apps, you can significantly decrease your test costs when migrating to Windows 7 and process for adding new apps becomes much more simplified » Evaluate how to best take advantage of VDI to virtualize Windows; we think VDI is good for all organizations but not necessarily all users because user experience and app performance is directly dependent on network connectivity. Additionally, we’ve seen evidence that VDI may represent higher costs than a PC environment for office workers based on some recent research on the TCO of VDI.
