Hello Community! My question is about which product to use for the virtualizing workstations. We're a small firm with about 40 windows assets that need to be updated with a fresh new OS since majority of these are WIN7. I'm new to the firm and I believe that to save on costs and systems management, we should remove all workstations and put them either in the CLOUD or keep our onsite VM implementation and virtualize all workstations. I would distribute Laptops that would allow all users to either RDP to their workstations from either inside the network OR remotely.
What I'm trying to understand is which way to go. Should I consider just VM'ing using my existing VM implementation (v.6x) OR should there be some consideration for VM's cloud services? Please keep in mind that I want to use the most cost effective of these solutions and not just "throw money and caution" into the wind.
Any and all comments are welcomed! Thank you in advance!
With only 40 Windows assets that sound like user computers, I would stick with traditional desktops/laptops. Though, I recommend for you to talk to a local partner to help you with the refresh so they can give you an in-depth analysis on your options.
