Virtualized Desktop

Sophus Technosol Pvt Ltd.

Enhance and ensure the success of your desktop virtualization

The Desktop virtualization challenge

Server virtualization only has an impact on IT. However, desktop virtualization has broad implications and calls for changes in end users’ working practises. The IT department would like to have more control and ensure security and manageability while the end user wants more freedom and flexibility. Desktop virtualization can offer a dynamic environment that satisfies user needs even while keeping under IT control by balancing end-user and IT requirements by enabling isolation and encapsulation.

Why a Desktop Virtualization Infrastructure assessment

The success of the desktop virtualization programme will depend on assuring high success and end-user satisfaction rates in the initial phases, given the extensive impact of desktop virtualization and the vast number of end-user apps. A thorough analysis of current network utilisation, the viability of virtualizing end-user applications, hardware and storage needs, and a predictive estimate of costs and savings are also necessary due to the complexity.

The Desktop Virtualization Infrastructure Assessment approach


Our consultants will work with you to gain a clear understanding of your current infrastructure, end users, applications and project and technical requirements. They will also understand your primary business drivers.

Data Collection:

Using a combination of assessment questionnaires and tool sets they will gather information which will help define end user use cases and user and application appropriateness and prioritize for virtualization . Data collected will include inventory, usage and performance data regarding desktop inventory, end user and application environments.

Data Analysis:

We arrive at a Gap Analysis by comparing requirements against current environment. Use cases are developed by classifying users into groups depending on their requirements. Using several evaluation criteria a hierarchy of virtualization readiness is developed and the user groups classified as Excellent, Fair and Inappropriate candidates for desktop virtualization.

Comprehensive Report:

Our consultants will provide a detailed report at the end of the Assessment. The recommendations will serve as a roadmap to your organization’s desktop virtualization initiative.
