You can migrate physical desktops to virtual desktops powered by VMware View in several different ways.
In one scenario, you simply replace all your users’ physical PCs with thin or zero clients. Thin and zero clients are simple, single-purpose devices that connect to a monitor, keyboard, mouse and network. When powered on, the only application to which the user has access is the View client software that allows the user to connect to her virtual View desktop. Thin or zero clients are easy to deploy, are secure and easy to manage.
However, not all organizations want to invest in new thin or zero client hardware when they embark on a physical to virtual desktop migration.
In many organizations, the physical PCs on users’ desks are still in good condition. Replacing them may not only incur additional cost, but also result in accounting complications. Therefore, there is interest in many organizations to convert these physical PCs to thin desktops instead of purchasing new thin or zero clients. This conversion process is referred to as “PC re-purposing”.
There are no discussions here currently, but as they appear they might have answers you need.
