Research Brief: Desktop Virtualization Extends Server Virtualization Experience and Skills
ESG Research Brief
The positive impact server virtualization has had on computing infrastructures—via cost savings and improved operational efficiency—has led IT managers to look for ways to extend these benefits to other areas of their operating environments. The most obvious target is the management of endpoint devices—driven largely by overwhelming maintenance and security burdens—in the form of desktop virtualization technology. In fact, ESG research reveals that not only is desktop virtualization the top IT priority among current server virtualization users, but there is usually a direct correlation between the two initiatives.
