Desktop virtualization refers to the separation of a desktop environment and related application software from a physical machine. It involves running desktops and applications on a central server and streaming the whole desktop experience to end users. This helps in reducing complexity and downtime as well as allowing flexible access to virtual apps and desktops from various devices. It also enables IT staff to centrally manage, secure and deploy desktops from a centralized infrastructure.
The Desktop Virtualization Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 12.3 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 10. % over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
