Desktop Virtualization as a Viable XP Migration Option

March 28, 2014 / Evolve IP

Redmond Magazine recently reached out to Evolve IP about why VDI solutions were a good solution for companies migrating off of Windows XP.

While virtual desktops represent a small niche of the enterprise client system universe, they’re a reasonable option for organizations with PCs still running Microsoft’s Windows XP operating system.
