    Desktop virtualization is a valuable technology platform and solves several business problems. With the many benefits, desktop virtualization has to offer for an environment, there are four prominent categories that stand out:
    1. Cost Savings
    From an IT perspective, virtual desktops help reduce the time it takes to provision new desktops, and they also help to decrease desktop management and support costs. Experts estimate that maintaining and managing PC hardware and software accounts for 50-70% percent of the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a typical PC. Companies often turn to virtual desktops to cut these IT labor costs.
    2. Simplified Management
    Since everything is centrally managed, stored, and secured, virtual desktops eliminate the need to install, update and patch applications, back up files, and scan for viruses on individual client devices. Desktop virtualization also helps to streamline the management of software assets.
    Companies can also help extend the life of older client devices with desktop virtualization or use it to support thin clients. A thin client is a computing device that’s connected to a network. Unlike a typical PC or “fat client,” which has the memory, storage, and computing power to run applications and perform tasks on its own, thin client functions only as a virtual desktop, using the computing power residing on networked servers.
    3. Enhanced Security
    Virtual desktops provide greater security to an organization because employees aren’t “carrying around” confidential company data on a personal device that could easily be lost, stolen or tampered with. For instance, in industries such as healthcare, where adherence to privacy regulations is of paramount importance, virtual desktops give medical personnel access to patient records without concerns about confidential information being downloaded. Since user data is backed up centrally and regularly, desktop virtualization also provides data integrity benefits.
    4. Increased Productivity
    Virtual desktops allow employees to access applications and documents from multiple devices, including other desktop computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. This increases productivity by allowing workers to access necessary data from anywhere. As a result, whether employees are in another building, another state, or halfway across the globe, a virtualized desktop allows them to be productive in any environment. Plus, if an employee’s device is defective, they can merely log in from another device and continue working because the data was not stored locally.
    Virtual environments also reduce the downtime the IT department needs to manually install new software or download software updates. This increases the productivity of all employees. Some of the best Virtual Desktops out there are Azure Windows 10 Virtual Machine and Citrix Virtual Desktop.
