Enterprise Desktop Virtualization
Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V), a core component of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) for Software Assurance, enables deployment and management of Microsoft virtual PC Windows desktops to enable key enterprise scenarios. Primarily, MED-V helps enterprises to upgrade to the latest version of Windows even when some applications are not yet functional or supported. MED-V builds on top of Virtual PC to run two operating systems on one device, adding virtual image delivery, policy-based provisioning, and centralized management. With MED-V, one can easily create, deliver and manage corporate Virtual PC images on any Windows-based desktop.
