Taming the PC infrastructure with desktop virtualization

Donna Independent School District faced a daunting challenge. They needed to replace their aging PC infrastructure, increase the number of desktops per classroom and add instructional labs for their growing district. But when replacement costs were estimated at a staggering $5 million, the district decided to head a new direction: virtual desktops.

Discover how desktop virtualization enabled Donna ISD to optimize their resources, become more energy efficient and double the number of classroom computers while slashing maintenance costs in half. Experts from Donna ISD and Parallels will share how desktop virtualization allows you to:

  • install applications district wide with a click of a mouse
  • improve desktop availability while cutting your platform maintenance in half and dramatically reducing desktop support activities
  • centrally manage thousands of desktops and securely delegate administrative responsibilities among your IT staff
  • Allow students to work from home through a secure desktop portal
