Abstract [en]

Traditional desktops can be expensive, unsecure, and complex to deploy in campus environments. Cloud providers offer a desktop virtualization solution that is widely used nowadays. In this study, we examine the differences between psychical desktops and cloud virtual desktops to determine which fits best in campus environments. This comparison is performed based on different aspects including the expenses, configurations, management, security, availability, and scalability. For this purpose, Windows Azure virtual desktop was deployed and compared to the traditional computing workstations at University West. There are other aspects but those we chose are the most important to consider when choosing a new IT solution [26 ,27]. The findings indicate that Windows Azure virtual desktop is a better alternative than the traditional desktops since it has high availability, and it is less expensive, scalable, easy to configure and manage. However, from a security perspective, traditional desktops are still to be preferred
