Not to be confused with accessing a cloud desktop from a mobile device, some vendors are now offering mobile virtualization. Though still in its early stages and limited to Android devices, the process of mobile virtualization is executed through smartphones that have hypervisors on them.
A recent Tech Target article discusses the differences between cloud desktop and mobile virtualization. The article asserts that cloud desktops have several advantages, including easier updates and full-fledged virtualization:
“If you go the route of delivering virtual desktops and applications to mobile devices, you can enjoy easier updating. If you implement shared virtual desktops, making any updates to the base image means you’ll see that change make its way to all your users. Plus, full-fledged virtualized desktops and applications often offer more functionality than mobile app alternatives.”
Cloud desktops provide businesses with the highest level of mobility. They allow employees to work remotely at an alarmingly efficient rate. Having access to their documents and data means that employees can work as productively from home as they can while they’re in the office.
