When should you virtualize your agency's desktops?

Definition: Desktop virtualization (or virtual desktop infrastructure) is intended as a server-centric computing model where all client data and desktop configuration information are stored on a server. As with a thin-client model, administrators can centrally manage and maintain desktop virtual machines while users have their own desktops, including choice of operating systems, at any client.
