2010 Evaluation Team Overview: Thin Client/Desktop Virtualization
The thin client/desktop virtualization evaluation team was formed in order to test, evaluate, and document thin client and desktop virtualization technologies from vendors such as Citrix, Microsoft, VMWare, and Wyse.
Specific deliverables included the extensive testing of these technologies in University environments, including testing in common usage scenarios. The team also leveraged current pilots and test deployments from across campus. This evaluation was intended to identify thin client and desktop virtualization technologies that would meet Penn's needs. Application virtualization was also considered as an alternative solution sutiable for specific needs, but testing of application virtualization was not expected as a deliverable given time constraints.
