TCO Analysis for Multi-Network Desktop Consolidation
Desktop consolidation – in which desktop environments are virtualized within data centers and then accessed with remote interaction software - is a hot trend due to the demand for green IT and reduced desktop Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Some organizations, however, are unable to take advantage of this transition. One reason is that the lightweight thin clients used to access virtualized desktops are unable to meet end user demands, for example high-end graphics performance or local storage for private information. A second key reason is a requirement to use distinct hardware platforms accessing distinct networks ("air gap"); commercial desktop consolidation products are not suitable for providing high assurance isolation of those back-end virtualized desktops and networks.
