Chapter 13

Optimizing the Desktop and Datacenter Infrastructure

IN THIS CHAPTER

  • Identifying the right desktop technology to use
  • Choosing between session virtualization and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)
  • When to use public cloud solutions
  • Datacenter technologies that are a must
  • Managing a heterogeneous datacenter
  • Planning for high availability and disaster recovery

At this point in the book, a large variety of virtualization technologies have been covered; and if it wasn’t already apparent, you can now see that virtualization touches basically every aspect of corporate IT. That can also make it seem overwhelming. Which technology should you use and how do the different options affect the user experience? Which workloads should be virtualized and which ones shouldn’t? How do you ensure that your virtual and physical systems are highly available, and how do you enable disaster recovery? This chapter examines the key factors to consider when choosing the architecture for your environment, and how to bring virtualization technologies together to create the best infrastructure for your organization.
