Virtual Desktop clients for iPads here before enterprise demand - by Bridget Botelho, Senior Site Editor of Virtual Desktop

While the demand for iPad is consumer-oriented today, the business case is slowly beginning to grow as more and more business-related "apps" become available, said Peter Ferraresso, CEO of Logical Systems, an IT consultancy in Canton, Conn.

One of his clients, a mortgage firm, made iPad, iPhone and Mac support a requirement for its virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) project last year because the firm's executives use Apple products and have a mobile sales force. So, Ferraresso had to choose a desktop virtualization product with an iPad client. At the time, that meant Citrix Receiver, but XenDesktop was too complicated and expensive for the small firm's needs, so he opted for Kaviza's VDI product, which also works with Receiver.
