Pretty cool but, why is virtualization important for government agencies? 

  1. cost control, more than ever government agencies are focused on strategies to improve operational efficiency and reduce costs
  2. flexibilty, allow government workers ability to work in different workplaces, from city hall to public works, with choices of different combinations of virtual desktops, voice, and video devices including latest smartphones, tablets, and Cisco Virtualization Experience Clients (VXC)
  3. security, better security and control of information in the data center rather than distributed endpoints and with the ”bring your own device” (BYOD) to work phenomenon, security is more critical than ever
