Some users enjoy a full desktop workspace with applications, data, shortcuts, wallpaper, and multi-tasking windows available across big screens or even multiple displays.

There is no one-size-fits-all virtualization technology for desktop virtualization. Depending on the needs of the user and goals of IT, a wide range of technologies may be leveraged to get the customization and persistence some users may need as well as the locked down highly managed environments suitable for others. In either case, you never want to pay more for infrastructure or ongoing management than you have to
While the goal of many leveraging virtualization is to centrally manage and host desktops and apps in the datacenter, there are cases where users must be able to view and modify documents or data when disconnected from any network. In these cases, Citrix XenDesktop permits administrators to stream and synchronize an entire managed desktop OS down to a local computer leveraging
technology where it may be secured as a complete encrypted file system with powerful policy enforcement.
Critical to the scale and management of a virtual environment is to separate and isolate user profiles and data away from the OS. Citrix XenDesktop contains a powerful profile management tool that manages profiles independently from OS and delivers required profile data on-demand keeping login times lighting fast. Citrix XenDesktop also uses real-time synchronization of user files from Citrix ShareFile, an on-premise or cloud-hosted cloud storage service that keeps user files out of the VM once again speeding logins and saving valuable storage resources.
