Overview: According to Gartner Research, it costs nearly $6,000 per year to maintain a PC for each of its two-to-three-year lifespan. Tim Fitzgerald, of Avnet Technology Solutions, argues that as much as 40 percent of the desktop TCO can be eliminated by switching to hosted virtual desktops (HVD). He suggests that the enterprise will realize benefits such as simplified, streamlined management, reduced desktop maintenance and support costs, improved compliance and security, and improved end-user SLAs.
