Many enterprises are moving towards a centralized compute model. Having the OS and software maintained on a central server simplifies the software licensing and compliance requirements in large enterprises. Security is also a critical consideration, but it often poses deployment and interoperability challenges when it has to coexist with other technologies. One such challenge faced by IT organizations is the deployment of OS Streaming (Preboot eXecution Environment—PXE) technology in 802.1x access control networks. This paper describes how Intel vPr technology can be used to build the next generation of streaming client platforms that provide the same flexibility without sacrificing security or user experience.
