Desktop virtualisation: why it's still relevant

When the concept of desktop virtualisation arrived a few years ago, it promised the world. Where previously, businesses had to manage specifics, like what applications were loaded onto each PC manually, virtualisation allowed them do so remotely via centralised control. Desktop virtualisation, in effect, enables organisations to give their employees the flexibility to work anywhere, on any devices, but without compromising security. Virtualisation also protects a business in the case of an unforeseen event. If bad weather, for instance, prevented its employees from coming to work, it could have them work from home.
