Desktop Virtualization

Desktop virtualization is a technology that decouples a PC desktop environment from a physical device so that the virtual machine (VM) of the PC desktop stored in a centralized server can be accessed from a remote client device through a network. There are various desktop virtualization technologies targeting different use cases, such as hosted virtual desktop (HVD), local VM, streaming desktop and hosted shared desktop.
