   On-Demand Virtual Desktops: Poised for Explosive
                       Growth


“Current deployments of hosted virtual desktops are limited, although many companies
are piloting and testing. Based on feedback from more than 300 user organizations since
2006, Gartner estimates current live user seats at 75,000. User license sales are
approximately triple this number and are expected to exceed 300,000 by the end of
2008, suggesting further deployments and growing user numbers for deployments during
the remainder of the year. Many companies have indicated aggressive deployment plans,
pointing to a significant acceleration in the hosted virtual-desktop market during 2009.
Hosted virtual-desktop user license sales are likely to exceed 1.5 million by the end of
2009. In many cases, organizations will combine a move toward hosted virtual desktops
with other rework of their desktop environment, particularly operating-system migration.
By 2013, approximately 15% of business desktop users (who work from a single
location) in mature markets will move to this model, amounting to as many as 50 million
users.”

Virtual-Desktop Deployments Are Set to Accelerate
               July 28, 2008
         Does not take into account other explosive growth opportunities:
              Virtual Desktops to Consumers (potential SI/SP play)
            On-Demand Applications on top of Virtual Infrastructure
On-Demand Virtual Desktops: Poised for Explosive Growth




“Goldman Sachs Software Research team believes desktop virtualization can
grow from less than $100 million in 2007 to $1.4 billion by 2011 in a
conservative scenario and up to 2.4 billion in 2011 using slightly more
aggressive penetration assumptions.

Key Drivers: Access, management, and security; cost over time.

Hurdles to overcome: ROI, complexity, licensing and end user experience.

      Challenges & Barriers to Widespread VDI Adoption
•   Are you selecting the right desktops to
    be virtualized?
•   Are you confident if your Virtual
    Infrastructure Design is viable?
•   Can you migrate user profiles and data
    easily?
•   Can you measure and monitor user
    experience?
•   Can you identify issues at the user,
    machine, application, network, and
    storage level?
•   Can you monitor latency of access to
    network resources and performance of
    storage?
•   Are you wasting too much time
    troubleshooting slowness, bottlenecks,
    issues?
