Vendors Sound Off On Desktop Virtualization


The coming fast growth of the desktop virtualization market has brought out multiple vendors, large and small, looking to gain a foothold and get their share as early as possible.

Vendors of desktop virtualization technology can be sorted into three broad categories: hypervisor-based server virtualization vendors who also offer desktop virtualization technology, desktop virtualization software vendors who take advantage of the VDI infrastructures offered by the server virtualization vendors, and hardware-based desktop virtualization vendors.

The following is a look at how some of those vendors are arming themselves and their channel partners.
