Abstract- Desktop virtualization is a new method which focus on the virtualization technology.It delivers desktop operating systems which execute in a data center and users access their personal virtual machine using thin-client devices.The purpose of desktop virtualization is to make the desktop virtual, so that the users can log in to get their personal desktop through the network with any terminal node devices at any time and at any place. This technology provides significant…show more content…
Keywords: Virtualization system; cloud computing; desktop virtualization. I. INTRODUCTION Desktop virtualization is an alternative to traditional desktop delivery.It refers to the virtualization of the computer desktop in order moving OS and application execution from local (to the user) device to a remote data center to achieve security and flexibility of the desktop usage. With this technology, we can connect or access to our individual desktop though the network by any device at anytime and anywhere. [2] Operating users node becomes a lightweight computer that handles only keyboard, mouse and monitor (as well as locally attached devices such as scanners and printers). Because of that desktop virtualization methodology , there are several advantages over the typical ”fat-desktop” approach [2]. Management costs of the solution are significantly lower because operating system images and data are no longer installed on a large number of distributed systems but in a well controlled and managed data center. Currently, most of the proposed desktop…show more content…
3.Access to any location on any device makes it more flexible. If we adopt the desktop virtualization technology, administrators can simply do centralized management the background processes on the server, so that we can achieve timely updates when access to server through the remote without affectation with 4 mobile terminals. The shortcomings or drawbacks of desktop virtualization technologies are: 1. Problems on centralized management: Virtualization allows multiple systems simultaneously run on a single server, so once the server hardware breaks down , all the systems will be forced to stop, giving the user a huge loss. 2.Problems of centralized storage: User’s data is stored in a centralized server, bringing the server enormous storage pressure. If the server has a fatal fault, all the User’s data will lose, which would make the entire platform face disaster. VI. CONCLUSION AND FUTURE WORK In this paper, we have proposed a novel desktop virtualization framework to provide virtualization services for users. In the proposed framework, server resources are integrated into a powerful computing capability pool which uses our proposed control mechanism to make efficient use of resources. Previous
