Desktop virtualization is a great idea at the hospital at nurse’s stations. Nurses change stations frequently and log in genericly so the pc is accessible by all at that station. By using a virtual desktop it will save money on pc’s and hard drive space.

We are considering desktop virtualization because we want to eliminate moving parts on the user’s desk. Less moving parts means less to maintain generally, and this is attractive. Plus with the ability to put 20 live virtual images on a server, the cost and power savings are quite substantial.

Hope this helps!

In addition, it’s great at a strong layer at Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan. You have provided “DR/BCP” functions down to the user layer so if disaster occurs, users can just go to your destined DR/BCP site and work as normal. Normally in this scenario without virtualizing the desktop infrastructure, It would need to have a surplus of desktops/laptops at the destined site (just sitting) collecting dust. This removes that function. Plus for small businesses who can’t afford to have “double of equipment” at both sites, they can have just the terminals waiting to be “turned on”.
