Thank you for the Blog. Question:- If I have x000 XenDesktop Platinum Licenses which version of XenServer is applied. I have License Server 11.12.1
I can assign ‘XenApp/XenDesktop Platinum’ license or
I can assign ‘Xenserver Standard Per-Socket (2 Required) or\
I can assign ‘Xenserver Enterprise Per-Socket (2 Required)

Based on your Blog I can see the difference between Standard and Enterprise – But what do you get if you have XenDesktop Platinum?

Thank you

Thomas, given your knowledge of NVIDIA GRID and your many blog posts, you might be interested in new research commissioned by NVIDIA, VMware and Dell. According to the new survey/research conducted by IDG on behalf of NVIDIA, VMware and Dell, just under one-quarter of respondents’ organizations (24%) have deployed a virtualized graphics solution, while 19% have deployment plans in the next 1-2 years. Another 22%, while they have no firm plans, have an interest in virtualizing their workstation or graphics user environment.

The purpose of the survey and research was to better understand user experiences and challenges with demanding graphics applications in use today, in addition to deployment plans for virtualized graphics solutions.

Other findings from the survey included:

Eighty percent of respondents agreed that long cycle times to load and save large graphic data sets in virtualized environments impede productivity. Among those who agreed, more than one third (35%) reported it takes an hour or more to load or save a large graphic data set.

Less than half (42%) rate the user experience of their organizations’ graphics applications as excellent or very good. The most important potential capabilities that respondents are looking for in a graphics application include improved security/disaster recovery (69% rating critical/very important), shortened load time (67%) and graphics acceleration (63%).
