Worldnet Technologies is touting a new desktop virtualisation system that delivers Windows7 desktops as a service to users anywhere at GITEX Technology Week.

“We’re focused on Windows 7 for GITEX and using Citrix as the software on top of that to virtualise it,” says Marketing Manager Anna Cass.

The Microsoft Virtualisation Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Strategy centralises and simplifies desktop lifecycle management, potentially reducing storage and endpoint costs by 40%.

The entire desktop lifecycle is managed in one location, simplifying desktop provisioning, patching, security and updates.Even though virtualisation has been around for a while, WorldNet still has to explain the concept to a lot of visitors.

“Virtualisation seems to be new, even though it’s been going for about two years. A lot of people don’t know about it, but the people that do know about it are quite interested,” says Cass.
