Assume that your company has 1,000 desktops, for which your CIO wants to deliver an operating system and environment on demand. Discuss the ability to provide desktop virtualization and which tools you would require. Be sure to note costs, risks, and other processes associated with landing these desktops.

How does this differ in a secure cloud environment based upon image deployment and standard network infrastructure?
