Can the Channel really deliver on the virtual desktop promise?

Virtualization has been the hottest topic dominating technology headlines in the last year, whether it is about new developments around virtual desktops, or server vendors integrating a hypervisor into systems to handle virtual machines with more efficiency.

From an end user perspective, desktop virtualisation has the greatest potential to change the way we work.

Moving a worker’s Windows desktop from the PC sitting on their desk to a virtual machine hosted in a datacentre has numerous attractions, but it also carries a degree of risk if not completed properly.

Is this enough to scare organisations from seriously looking at virtualisation?

Maybe not, as widespread desktop virtualisation is inevitable but the channel/VAR assisting its customers with adoption has a huge part to play in avoiding a first bad experience.
