Managing Desktops Today
How do I maintain or improve
I’m
required to do more
with less? Less budget, less
desktop management when
Information and data is our most important asset.
Security is a priority
and we need to
ensure that this data and IP is safeguarded
power consumption, less resources..
I need to support a
growing # diverse
applications that don’t always
run well in a terminal services
environment

I need to provide users with the
best possible experience on LAN, off
LAN, on multiple devices.
Desktop and application delivery as a managed service

Image Updates
Getting Started
• What do I need to get started in desktop virtualization?
• A server with plenty of RAM, CPU, and disk to run:
– ESX/ESXi
– vCenter as a VM
– Your master image desktop OS as a VM
– X number of clones as VMs
– The broker (View or XenDesktop) as a VM
• A solid network
• A thin client

Step 1 : Determine which users
• Choose easy targets, ideally:
– Smaller number of applications
– Easy-going and will provide honest feedback
– No special device support

Step 2 : Choose a platform
• Citrix XenDesktop?
– Pro’s : Very flexible, great user experience, excellent level of IT
and user acceptance, any device
– Con’s : Can be pricey, history of being complicated
• VMware View?
– Pro’s : Easy to setup and manage, wide user community,
Composer saves SAN cost
– Con’s : PCoIP isn’t great on the WAN, pricey, and some consider it
still in infancy
• Wyse WSM?
– Pro’s : Easy to setup, low TCO, no SAN required
– Con’s : 100% of happy customers say there are none 

Step 3 : Create a base image
Image Cloning
• Build a base Windows 7 or Windows XP image
• Recommended for first run that you bundle
your applications into the image
Step 4 : Create clones in a desktop pool
• Select base image and configure the number
of clones that you want to create

Machine Type Definitions
• Pooled
– Direct copies of the master VM, no customization
• Dedicated
– Permanently assigned to individual users, with
customization
• Physical
– Desktops hosted on dedicated blade servers; no centralized
power control
• Streamed
– vDisk imaged from a master target device with Provisioning

Tips for a successful Proof of Concept
• Plenty of storage speed/IOPs on your SAN
• Fast network – 1Gb where possible
• Choose the right endpoint (thin client)
• Don’t overcomplicate the architecture - KISS
