A virtual desktop is the interface of the user set in a virtualized setting. The virtualized desktop is not stored locally but on a remote server. This type of virtualization software detaches the physical machine from the software thus creating a remote operating system for users.

There are several benefits of using virtual desktop. As resources can be shared and apportioned on a basis of needs, it can result in immense cost savings. Virtual desktop also ensures more efficient use of energy and resources. As the backup is centralized, it can result in improved integrity of data. Efficiency can be improved drastically as the administration is centralized. Also, compatibility issues are fewer when you use a virtual desktop.

Desktop visualization can be ideal for those using business software applications. This system is not usually practicable for those with high resource demands. A user may have separate virtual desktops for various applications using a single host machine.

The latest Virtual Desktop version makes viewing of side-by-side content utterly easy. Users can toggle easily between various view types. Launching a video is extremely simple. You just have to go to the Video Player tab, choose your video, and then fine-tune options on the fly. The Virtual Desktop window will fade away when the mouse is left still, and reappear on movement.
