Comments on Why iPads might be desktop virtualization’s greatest threatWhat's new and what matters in IT news, opinion and analysis.2013-05-08T17:37:49Zhttp://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/IT-watch-blog/why-ipads-might-be-desktop-virtualizations-greatest-threat/feed/atom/By: EcorroEcorrohttp://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/IT-watch-blog/?p=2481#comment-6722011-09-07T12:55:52Z2011-09-07T12:55:52ZI think this is very interesting specially because VDI manufacturers are not really thinking that there is a trade off between the adoption of VDI and the adoption of tablets by the enterprise. I think that in certain circumstances tablets are mutually exclusive with virtual desktops especially is the tablets gets empowered by SaaS aps, then there is no need for windows, therefore there is not room for VDI (at least the VMware’s and CTX implementations of VDI). It’d be great if Michael could write an update of this article by the end of Q4FY11 to see what happened at the end in this year.

Perhaps even have the ability to incorporate local PDA apps within the virtual offering! That would put the smart phones and tablets in their place for sure!

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a laptop, netbook, notebook, desktop…what ever… we will continue to implement virtualization of these “access devices” because it is so much easier to support the software centralized and virtualized as well as storage is organized and secured thru security profiles. A user downloads the applet that allows them to get to the supporting software that they need to assess/use… for business the activity may be in a private or public cloud, for personal, right now it’s public clouds, but I believe as threats/security issue increase for all these devices, even public personal users may contract with Private hosts to keep all their activity from prying eyes….look for this next on the horizon.

Desktop traditionally was where everything was stored: applications, personal documents, data contacts, etc. But with smart phones and tablets, some of this is already distributed. With cloud you can still store this and more and access it from anywhere. So the real question is how much of your stuff can float in the cloud? What are the risks?
