How to tell if Desktop Delivery (VDI) is a Relevant Option

These are a few key reasons that Desktop Virtualization or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is such an important driver currently and how to tell in the future if it is a relevant delivery option.

• Minimum device resources in each device tier and the cost–tier relationship.
• Ubiquity of Internet connectivity.
• Hardware relationship to operating system base requirements.
• Operating system hardware dependence, configuration complexity, and size compared to local storage cost/size.

Choosing the Right ICA Client: ARM or ARM4I

I detailed the whole process that I went through to choose the right install method for my Sprint 6700 PocketPC device on my weblog. (This is a XTC or UTstarcomm device.)

1. The easiest way is the all processors option. The file size is larger, approx 17MB but that only applies to the initial download on the synchronizing PC. The actual client files are much smaller. Only the couple of MB that you need for ICA functionality have to be installed.

2. If you know you don't need x86 architecture processor support, then the next easier method is to choose either of the ARM or ARM4I/ ARMv4I .exe files. Both of the exe files listed on the Citrix Client download site contain both of the ARM client versions. So when you execute the exe for the ARM clients the appropriate version of ARM is installed. So, if you have a PocketPC then just execute the exe on the synchronizing PC and the right client gets installed.

3. The hardest method is to directly install one of the ARM cabs to the PocketPC. If it doesn't work then you install the other one. The only good part about this is that if you really wanted to find out what client cab you needed and what processor type was in your particular PocketPC device then this method would tell you.
