– Isolation of apps
– No interoperability issues with apps/eliminates apps conflicts
– Will ultimately be able to run apps for newer os levels
– Makes profiles/interface customization portable
System Center manages both physical and virtual for all types of virtual
Looks like reliable shared storage is our biggest issue to rolling
virtualization into our dev/qa environments.
Presenter noted that many desktop apps are moving back to the
server… Apparently, the mainframe is coming back. Methinks this is
an excellent idea.
On app virtualization:
A mobile user can be provioned through AD. All (everything) is
replicated back to a server — sobif they lose their machine, you give
them a new one and they’re up and running immediately.
You can make apps local (LAN) only or unique to their (v)machine.
Can also set up to allow a contract worker to use a localized vm
(hosted) or app only.
