- A while back, we lowered VDI licensing costs by making desktop access rights a Software Assurance (SA) benefit.
- When we released our application virtualization solution, App-V 4.6, we also reduced storage costs for VDI, making it possible to store a single copy of virtual applications on a SAN while deploying them to multiple virtual machines.
- Now, with SP1, we are working to lower the operational expenses of VDI by optimizing VM density through the new Dynamic Memory functionality in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. More info here..
- We are also pleased to announce Windows Thin PC (WinTPC), an upcoming SA benefit. WinTPC is a smaller footprint, locked down version of Windows 7, designed to allow customers to repurpose their existing PCs as thin clients. PCs with WinTPC will not require the VDA license that regular thin clients will need to access VDI desktops. WinTCP is expected to be available for download from the Microsoft Connect Site in Q1 2011.
