Workspace Virtualization

Desktop virtualization and application virtualization technologies are increasingly used throughout enterprises to reduce hardware costs, improve manageability, and ease deployment of corporate software assets to PCs. Desktop virtualization enables deployment of a full desktop environment with applications in it to PCs, and lets them run on a remote server. Using it IT can achieve greater efficiencies by centralizing PC resources. Application virtualization solutions allow quick and easy deployment of applications to employee PCs and external PCs. They simplify PC lifecycle management tasks and create better efficiencies in using and managing applications on desktops. Application virtualization can be further improved beyond a single application to encompass a complete workspace, better addressing modern IT requirements. We call this application workspace virtualizat... (more)

Alvecon Runs Insurance Broker Applications Using Ceedo Desktop Virtualization and Mobility Office

Alvecon runs insurance broker applications using Ceedo desktop virtualization and Mobility Office. Alvecon selected and deployed Ceedo and Mobility Office as a standard system for its brokers. Using it, brokers get all of their professional and office applications on a USB device, achieving savings for Alvecon in deployment and management of applications and allowing enhanced productivity to its brokers. Alvecon distributed professional applications to brokers on CDs from the insurers. This was difficult to manage and caused uptime problems. Additionally, due to incompatibility of some insurer applications, collisions between applications on the PCs caused huge support problems The Ceedo solution improved the process by offering a virtual mobile work environment on USB drives with a build-in deployment system. The initial workspace of applications was created by Mob... (more)

Workspace Virtualization: A low-cost, High-performance Approach to Deploying Enterprise Computing

Desktop and application virtualization technologies are increasingly being used throughout the enterprise to improve manageability and ease deployment of corporate environments on PCs. While application virtualization solutions are typically limited to a single application, desktop virtualization solutions enable deployment of a full desktop environment. The inclusion of a full operating system in the virtualized desktop image creates solutions with high licensing costs, large footprint and deteriorated performance on end users’ PCs. Workspace Virtualization takes a suite of standard Windows applications, and creates a virtualized application workspace on top of an existing Windows OS installation. Workspace Virtualization creates a seamless separation between the application workspace and the OS, optimizing the manageability, performance and deployment aspects of t... (more)

'Cloud-based Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Market will be $11.2bn in 2012' says Latest Report

LONDON, October 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtual desktops have been on the radar of enterprise IT since the 1990s, but only recently has technology reached a point where they can be expedient and cost-effective enough to warrant serious discussion and consideration. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) was devised as a replacement for the traditional PC model, its ease of management touted as the major advantage. However, the cost of outlay for server hardware and network equipment was an early entry barrier for many enterprises. In 2012, much higher network speeds and the leveraging of public clouds are allowing VDI vendors to capitalise on this previously underused technology. Visiongain calculates that just over 50% of US enterprises are undergoing a migration to virtual desktops or contemplating one in the next 12 months. Although the virtual desktop is but one of ...
