Best Microsoft Products for Personal Virtual Desktops
I work for a local authority in IT Support and support 68 schools in our borough. I have a team of 10 IT Support staff and we like many authorities will be shrinking in office space and having to work more flexibly (as we're losing 2 desks, but not staff).
We currently have a Win7 PC each on our network (2008 R2) and all use Virtual Box to carry out testing on our machines for servers and clients. As we all have our own VM's and our PC's are setup by the individual, hot desking would be difficult.
I need a setup in our office so we can hotdesk, remote onto a powerful server into a personal VM and also setup VM's within that (or have the facility to do it on a central server rather than on an indivdual PC). Hope this makes sense!
What's the best setup for my staff to be able to do this? Hyper-v? App-V? Med-V?, it all seems a bit of a minefield to be honest.
We have money to spend on new server kit and software, but I just need the best solution to be able to have personal virtual desktops with the facility for my staff to still setup test VM's.
Many thanks in advance.
