Combine the virtues of all 3 worlds with a single management environment. Enjoy the benefits of Enterprise-Wide Desktop virtualization.
Here's the Story
An organization implementing Windows Terminal Services (WTS) often finds that WTS meets the needs of 70-80% of their "task-based" Windows desktop users. The remaining 20-30% of their users have various technical and personal requirements, ranging from performance, application compatibility issues and the need for a specific desktop OS, to guaranteed CPU/memory resources and enhanced security. Meeting the needs of these “Power” users requires running their complete desktops on virtualized desktops (VDI) or Blade PCs; both of which provide certain advantages over WTS, including:
- Customized and personalized individual desktop configurations
- VDI sessions are isolated from each other, leading to better performance/robustness, and better security of user sessions
- VDI can host applications that are not compatible with a WTS environment
- VDI makes it possible to mix several operating systems in the same environment
What's the Problem?
VDI costs $500 per user - twice as much as the cost of WTS per user ($250). VDI also requires five times as many servers as WTS, which means five times the floor space and power consumption.
Enterpise-wide Desktop Virtualization
Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect enables enterprises to leverage the benefits of Windows Terminal Server, virtual desktops (VDI) and Blade PCs— with a single management environment, and cost-effectively achieve 100% desktop virtualization of their corporate desktops. Now you can significantly reduce the average cost of desktop virtualization to approximately $400 per user, while reducing the number of servers required, floor space and power consumption needs.
70-80% Terminal Services (task-based users)
+ 20-30% VDI (power users)
+ 5-10% Blade PCs (power users,stock traders, graphic artists, CAD/CAM users)
= 100% Desktop Virtualization!
Maximize Savings and IT Efficiencies
Combine the benefits of VDI, WTS and Blade PCs with a single management environment—reduce the costs and complexities of desktop management throughout the organization.
