Choosing an Appropriate User State Virtualization Solution
User state virtualization describes the separation of user settings and data from an end user's personal computer. Microsoft Windows provides three technologies for virtualizing user state information: Roaming User Profiles, Folder Redirection, and Offline Files. Windows 7 includes improvements that provide IT implementers with more options, greater flexibility, and simplified management of these User State Virtualization technologies, as well as provide end users with a better overall experience. The challenge organizations face is to implement the right mix of these technologies to meet their business needs.
