Persistent vs. Non-persistent Explained: A Guide for IT Pros

As you navigate Hosted Desktop Infrastructure (HDI) and VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) opportunities, you'll need to explore a decision tree involving persistent vs. non-persistent deployments — and best-practices guidance. Understand how to most effectively allocate your persistent vs. non-persistent users so that user experience & acceptance is positive while IT’s management of desktop infrastructure is simplified. Generally speaking, a non-persistent desktop reverts back to a Golden OS Image upon each users logout and reboot — a potential headache for end users. But on the flip side, a persistent desktop forces IT to manage the virtual desktops like individual, personalized workstations — which can increase costs to the detriment of cost-per-user and ROI (return on investment). The big question: Can IT Pros find an HDI solution that delivers the best of both worlds?

This webinar covers:

  1. State of the HDI and VDI Markets
  2. Persistent vs. Non-persistent: Explained by the experts
  3. HP's approach to solving the debate — and delivering a great end-user experience
  4. Getting started with HDI: Key components and considerations
