Despite the security and productivity benefits desktop virtualization provides, there are still a few IT executives who consider the technology about as appealing as green eggs and ham. They will approve a small pilot and are often eager to have their current IOPS requirements benchmarked. They are also impressed with how effective desktop virtualization is at reducing break-fix calls, especially when coupled with Dell Wyse endpoints such as the new P25 and Z50D. But when it comes to actually approving a production deployment of a powerful, highly-secure VDI solution, some IT professionals will tell their colleagues they actually don’twant to oversee the transition.
The reason has nothing to do with their real-world experiences or any limitations of the technology. Instead, the quiet deal-breaker may be a lingering concern that they won’t be able to service a VDI solution without additional training or certifications. It might make IT administrators who are currently seen as rockstars look less effective if a service issue were ever to lead to end user downtime. And, it’s easy to justify a wait-and-see approach to a full rollout since “complexity” has been associated with desktop virtualization for as long as people can remember.
Today, however, Dell has the answer.
