With a virtual desktop, clients can easily access their workspace from anywhere in the world via an Internet connection. This can include carrier connections from a phone or mobile internet device.
You can access the desktop with a broad range of devices including purpose built thin clients, other machines, or small mobile devices. This allows clients to avoid expensive hardware refresh cycles.
Unlike physical desktops, virtual desktops are designed for data center level redundancy and failover. Practically speaking, this lessens the impact of a user's equipment problem and translates into quick and seamless recovery in event of a failure.
Clients can easily and securely access their virtual application suite on nearly any device. Applications can be setup to appear like any other local application or can be accessed from a web portal via a browser.
Virtual applications are installed in data centers and can be centrally managed. A single update point eliminates the challenges of pushing coordinated changes out across an entire corporate environment.
Since applications are managed on the server side, clients can control versioning for their users. This facilitates easier staging and ensures all production users launch the same version of the application.
