What is Virtual Desktop?
The term Virtual Desktop allows an individual user’s interface in a virtualized environment. It is stored in a remote server rather than a native place. A desktop virtualization software separates the underlying physical hardware from the software and represents it as a stand alone operating system for the users. In the most simple terms, it is a user’ s desktop environment which include icons, wallpapers, toolbars, widgets, folders, wallpaper, windows, etc. and stored remotely on the server, rather than a client PC or other locally existed computer device.
The remote server which supports the virtual desktop employs software called a hypervisor. Subsequently, a hypervisor technique is used to create a virtual machine that models the user’s desktop environment and capabilities. In a virtual desktop architecture, users access their personal desktop via remote access, through the Internet, from any kind of computer device
