Desktop Virtualization (DV) promises to slash the cost of delivering workplace computing by eliminating expensive, full-featured computers, reducing the amount and cost of "break-fix" support, simplifying software patches and upgrades, improving security through smaller attack surfaces, and giving users enhanced "work from anywhere" desktop mobility. Achieving that promise is possible but requires carefully matching user requirements to specific DV technologies, especially for high-compute demand office and creative users. Desktop virtualization approaches range from dedicated per-user hardware slices hosted in the data center to pure virtualization of each user workspace to simply virtualizing applications or specific workflows via run-time compartmentalization. Improved network capacities, CPU performance, and memory economy is creating new DV models designed to service for both low- and high-compute demand users. Mel Beckman discusses the pros and cons of each approach in this ten-minute podcast.
