Desktop Virtualization at Seattle Children's

First few Article Sentences

So, what's all this talk about virtual desktops, the cloud, and something called BYOD? Let me de-tech some of the talk you may have heard from your IT folks.

Desktop virtualization is simply running a desktop operating system (either Windows or Linux; Apple has more limited virtualization capabilities) on a device other than the device it's physically running on. Essentially, think about it as a super long keyboard, mouse, and video monitor hooked up to a computer. Why would you want to do that? Let me explain the whys and hows that lead us to virtual desktops at Seattle Children's.
