We are looking for a user workstation visualization solution for a small setup of approx 15 users.
What we want is to be able, a boot time, to "push" a managed image of a windows OS (typically win7 or 8) to a bunch of workstations (no necessarily completely standardized but still similar in capacity). We don't want thin clients / VDI here but managed thick clients.
It seems that VMWare Horizon would do that but unless I'm completely wrong with their licensing we are looking for 30k$+ for our 15 users, which is way over budget.
Again, about 15 workstations, only windows, may a set of 2-3 standard images to deploy at boot. Something lightweight...
What would be your recommendation ?
Actually we do NOT want VDI - we want the users to run local Windows. I thought something based on netboot might be in order... ?
