Many IT departments approach virtualising the desktop the same way they virtualised their servers, with disastrous results.
If you botch a desktop virtualisation project, everyone will let you know. Your boss wants to know when it's going to save some money. Users complain when it takes 10 minutes to boot up. Everyone wants to know when they can have their PCs back.
The Reg's Tim Phillips is joined by Chad Bittner from Xiotech and Tony Lock from Freeform Dynamics, who spell out the common pitfalls of virtualisation, show how to avoid them, and explain where to spend your budget to get best results.
