The Virtual Client Computing Market

In 2019, the virtual client computing software market was estimated to be worth USD 9.32 billion. From 2020 to 2027, it is anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 23%. Due to reasons including increased need for an agile workforce, declining prices, growing desire for increased user productivity, greater information security, and simpler IT administration, the industry is expanding at an astounding rate. Furthermore, the prevalence of the danger of data loss and theft is driving up demand for virtual client computing (VCC). Businesses are implementing digital transformation methods like virtualization and automation to save costs as the trend of data collection for business insights keeps growing.

This article will look at the benefits of virtual client computing and its key features. Discover efficient virtual client computing with Parallels® RAS.

The Benefits of Virtual Client Computing

Virtualizing your environment can increase scalability while simultaneously reducing expenses, and the following details a just a few of the many benefits that virtualization can bring to your organization:

Reduce Your IT Costs

Running a non-virtualized environment could be inefficient because the compute is idle and cannot be used for other applications while you are not using the software on the server. This single physical server transforms into numerous virtual PCs when an environment is virtualized. One physical server can hold all of these virtual machines, but they can each run different operating systems and programs.

Consolidating the programs into virtualized environments is a more cost-effective solution that will help you utilize much fewer servers and save money for your business because you may employ fewer physical clients.

Boost Resilience and Decrease Downtime in Disaster Recovery Scenarios

Someone must replace or repair a physical server after a disaster, which might take several hours or days. In a virtualized environment, replicating or cloning of the damaged virtual machine is simple to provision and deploy. Instead of taking hours to provide and set up a new physical server, the recovery procedure would just take a few minutes, thereby strengthening the environment’s resilience and ensuring business continuity.

Boost Productivity and Efficiency

Your IT employees will be able to spend less time managing the physical hardware and IT infrastructure if you have fewer servers. Instead of going through the hard and time-consuming process of applying the updates server-by-server, you will be able to install, update, and manage the environment across all of the VMs in the virtual environment on the server. The effectiveness and productivity of your team rise when less time is spent on environment upkeep.

DevOps and Control Independence

Your developers may easily start up a virtual machine without affecting a production environment since the virtualized environment is divided among virtual machines. Because the developer can easily clone the virtual machine and test the environment, this is perfect for Dev/Test.

Virtual Client Computing is more Eco-Friendly (environmental and organizational)

The quantity of electricity utilized will decrease when you are able to reduce the number of physical servers the company is operating. Two green advantages come from this:
