AppSense is the leading provider of user virtualisation technology to enterprise organisations

The key function of user virtualisation is to manage specific information, independent of the desktop, and applying it virtualised, published, streamed, local etc. to desktops.

User virtualisation for virtual desktops

The user component of a desktop (known as the user personality) is detached from any applications and the operating system as a whole. It is then managed independently and applied into a desktop where required. This is all carried out without scripting, group policies or user profiles which can be cumbersome, regardless of the delivery of the desktop.

Each individual can personalise standardised or pooled desktops use of user personalities. This ensures that the quality of service is the best possible, increasing user adoption and reducing associated IT admin costs.

User virtualisation for terminal servers

Guaranteeing optimal user experience levels and allowing IT to have more control over the environment are just some of the outcomes from user virtualisation for computing environments that are server based.

IT administrators no longer need to maintain different user profiles or resolve complaints regarding sluggish logon times and unresponsive applications.

Full compliance with Microsoft licensing can be maintained by application entitlement which blocks unauthorised applications with the need for high maintenance lists or scripts, whilst simultaneously providing protection from unknown executables.

The use of resource entitlement which ensures that all hardware is fully optimised benefits the entire IT infrastructure, such as the quality of service, user satisfaction and productivity.
