Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Look at the virtual desktop tools that VMware offers. They can provide you with all sorts of options. VMware ACE is probably the platform that you should be looking at. Give VMware a call their sales team can figure out the product which you should be using.

    For a fairly typical small business environment i.e. MS Windows-based OS. The question is deliberately open-ended. Suggestions anyone? I've had a look at VMWare, Citrix etc. It looks like Citrix might be better than individual VMs for each user in VMWare. Also any suggestions as to what licensing is required to make it legal?

    You can also use the Microsoft Virtual Desktop infrastructure, VMWare, Citrix, or any of several others. Each offers a managed infrastructure at various cost points. The questions are: 1. Do you need to manage the Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure? 2. Will the desktops run local to the remote user or on a backend server infrastructure? 3. Where will the data reside (which may drive where the Virtual Desktop runs)? 4. Will you be virtualizing applications?
