Presentation Virtualization Solutions Whitepaper

Presentation Virtualization allows the creation of virtual sessions, each interacting with a remote desktop system. The applications executing within those sessions rely on presentation virtualization to project their user interfaces remotely. Each session may only run a single application, or it might present its user with a complete desktop offering multiple applications. In either case, several virtual sessions utilize the same installed copy of an application and a single server OS.

These benefits have made Presentation Virtualization an attractive solution, not only to large enterprises, but also to small and medium scale businesses and not-for-profit organisations. Presentation Virtualisation can reduce the cost of ownership, reduce energy costs, ease manageability and increase user productivity.
