  • First and foremost thing is to assess the currently deployed physical desktops because assessment metrics are the foundation for any infrastructure and image designs
  • Consider leveraging a shared "stateless" VM image design for best performance and lowest cost. Use of shared "stateless" image allows user virtualization to decouple persona, settings and data from the image.
  • Always keep user profiles in native Windows formats to migrate from physical to virtual and back again (roll back)
  • Every POC should be validated before, during and after critical junctures to ensure performance meets SLAs
  • In production, it is essential that desktop administrators have a monitoring solution to pinpoint where problems arise.
