Desktops on Demand: An Introduction to Hosted Virtual Desktops
Desktop computing lies at heart of the IT infrastructure for businesses of all sizes, from small businesses with just a handful of users, to the largest of enterprise organisations.

As a result, the disparate architecture of multiple end-user devices has led to significant headaches for IT departments and individual businesses.
