Virtual Desktops – an Exciting Emerging Technology Platform for Academic Computing

With virtual server technology gradually becoming mainstream, the next big leap is the virtual desktop.

Right behind the implementation of virtual servers is the next big leap in virtual computing technologies – the virtual desktop.

Virtual Desktop technology has been around in various forms for years, but it’s only gained mainstream momentum in the business world in the last few years. Academic institutions tend to lag the business world in adoption of many technologies, and that is certainly the case with virtual desktop tech, which is limited but slowly growing in education.
