This VMware Horizon reference implementation case study focuses on a View virtual desktop infrastructure at Colt, a major European IT and network service provider. The View solution was chosen for all permanent and contract employees because it simplifies Colt™s desktop management strategy, increases control of corporate assets, and significantly improves end-user data security.Colt used View to enable employees to work remotely, and to reduce or eliminate costly desktop and laptop replacement. With this implementation model, employees are able to use their own laptop, desktop, or mobile device; and to access a Colt virtual desktop from any location. The main driver for the business case was to unlock the three-year laptop and desktop refresh cycle, enabling employees to conduct a self-service refresh at the time of their choosing.
