Desktop Virtualization is here, clear up your desks
This is the next generation computing, one server many dumb terminals. Easy put but believe it , this will be the future, centralized systems managing user desktops, profiles , downloads and license.
From an IT technical perspective, think how easy its going to be. Manage one server, one license , one upgrade/downgrade, update one system; its reverts back to the number mighty ONE.
Now you think that’s cool, think if Mail server, Web Server, Print server, Application Server & DB server centralized to one.
Basically we will have ONE mighty server (you may say a SUPER SERVER) that can manage User Desktops (that itself is a relief) & that can manage all the Servers.
Now think about the maintenance and debug nightmare. But the relief is only 1 computer needs to be fixed and only one specialist needs to be there who has a knowledge of all these applications.
One of the emerging companies into virtualization is Citrix

The future of desktop computers looks like this, an LCD screen, a wireless mouse, wireless keyboard & a small box (used to be CPU) for DVD/ BlueRay Disk/ SD Card and some USB connectors.. Easy, Simple, Space Saver
Watch out and get ready for this transition….
