TECH TIDBIT
When I think of Cloud computing, I think mobility....
Pat Pennington, IT Consultant, IT Resource
...the ability to get to my software and network resources, no matter my location. Take desktop computing for example - end user computing has traditionally been a single device/single location model. With the advent of virtualization we have the opportunity to expand the single device/single location environment by virtualizing the desktop experience.

Over the past 10 years end users have had more demands placed on their time, meaning they want and need access to their corporate information anytime, from any location. Prior to cloud computing and virtualization, granting access anytime and anywhere conflicted with security and compliance practices. However, employee productivity demands, and the availability of new technology are leading businesses to evaluate their current models by looking at the advantages of virtualization, including increased productivity, security, high-availability access, and scaling the environment as the business grows and changes.

This desktop on demand concept is just one aspect of Cloud computing. To see how we can use virtualization to get your business mobile, contact me at patp@itrw.net or 616.837.6930.
