How does XenDesktop work?

No problem.

Windows Server 2008R2 OS
How it works
• Users get their own Windows 7 or Windows 8
How it works
• Users share desktop resources and operating
• Each user is isolated from another users, making
this model more secure
• Crash in one OS crashes other shared users
• IT manages one image (or a few variations of one
image) which simplifies IT Management
• Patching requires application to individual
• Different sets of users are served different images,
as needed
• Personal vDisk option allows for added
personalization to users/groups
• Operating system is Windows Server
XenDesktop delivers a better VDI experience
A better experience for users
• Crashes affect only one user
• Windows 8, Windows 7 or Windows XP
• Better application compatibility than XenApp which requires Windows Server
• Personal vDisk option allows you to give users a personalized desktop
• XenDesktop 7’s “Local App Access” integrates local Windows apps into a
hosted virtual desktop
A better experience for administrators
• XenDesktop 7.5 – Single pane of glass delivery of XenDesktop, XenApp, published
XenApp applications, & local applications via local app access
• Easier to maintain image
• Easier patch management
• Better security
• More redundancy
How it works…
Desktop Refresh = Cost Savings
