HP Virtual Solution Eases Management of Desktop PC Environments
Solution Combines HP Hardware And Management Software With Services And Partner Components

HP has introduced a solution that eases the management of desktop environments and lowers costs by reducing the need to over-provision IT resources. The HP Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) provides customers with a cost-efficient desktop environment by consolidating many physical desktop PCs onto a single server that is centrally hosted and managed within the data center. The solution combines HP hardware and management software with services and partner components, such as VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.

HP’s desktop virtualization solutions offer centralized manageability, efficiency and reliability through server-class hardware and virtualization software. These solutions also secure application and data centrally while saving power and cooling costs for underutilized PCs.

HP VDI complements other HP client virtualization offerings, including the HP Consolidated Client Infrastructure and Citrix solutions that extend the reach of virtual desktops over longer distances.

“HP is bringing advanced desktop virtualization capabilities into the reach of mainstream IT for cost-effective management of desktop environments,” said Nick van der Zweep, director, Virtualization, Technology Solutions Group, HP. “By pooling and sharing computing resources for desktop infrastructures, businesses can use computing resources that would otherwise be wasted.”

Making IT more efficient with a virtual desktop solution

A complete hardware and management solution, HP VDI supports dozens of virtual clients on a single HP ProLiant server or HP BladeSystem server blade, and delivers a PC computing environment that can be accessed from HP thin clients, desktops and notebooks. The servers use existing network switches and wide area network (WAN) infrastructure and leverage server-class high availability for data security and enhanced business continuity.

As a member of the VDI Alliance program, HP’s offering leverages Virtual Desktop Infrastructure from VMware, the global leader in virtualization software for industry-standard desktops and servers. VMware provides a scalable enterprise-class virtualization platform for virtual desktop solutions.
