Executive Summary

With all the recent focus on VDI and desktop virtualization, people are starting to talk about "bare metal" or "Type 1" client hypervisors. Promising the ability to run virtual desktop workloads "locally" on client devices, these hypervisors have the potential ability to radically impact our industry.

But client hypervisors are not just about delivering virtual desktops to local client devices. In fact, one could argue that the true value of a client hypervisor is in the desktop lifecycle management arena, not in the desktop virtualization space.

In this paper, Brian Madden explores the value of bare metal client hypervisors in the context of PC lifecycle management.
