Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Home / Products / Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Desktop virtualization creates a software-based (or virtual) version of an end user’s desktop environment and operating system (OS) that is decoupled from the end user’s computing device or client. This enables the user to access his or her desktop from any computing device.

In virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), the operating system runs on a virtual machine (VM) hosted on a server in a data center. The desktop image travels over the network to the end user’s device, where the end user can interact with the desktop (and the underlying applications and operating system) as if they were local.

Simpler administration

Desktop virtualization can make it easier for IT teams to manage employee computing needs. Your business can maintain a single VM template for employees within similar roles or functions instead of maintaining individual computers that must be reconfigured, updated, or patched whenever software changes need to be made. This saves time and IT resources.

Cost savings

Many virtual desktop solutions allow you to shift more of your IT budget from capital expenditures to operating expenditures. Because compute-intensive applications require less processing power when they’re delivered via VMs hosted on a data center server, desktop virtualization can extend the life of older or less powerful end-user devices. On-premise virtual desktop solutions may require a significant initial investment in server hardware, hypervisor software, and other infrastructure, making cloud-based DaaS—wherein you simply pay a regular usage-based charge—a more attractive option.

Support for a broad variety of device types

Virtual desktops can support remote desktop access from a wide variety of devices, including laptop and desktop computers, thin clients, zero clients, tablets, and even some mobile phones. You can use virtual desktops to deliver workstation-like experiences and access to the full desktop anywhere, anytime, regardless of the operating system native to the end user device.

Improved productivity

Desktop virtualization makes it easier for employees to access enterprise computing resources. They can work anytime, anywhere, from any supported device with an Internet connection.

Stronger security

In desktop virtualization, the desktop image is abstracted and separated from the physical hardware used to access it, and the VM used to deliver the desktop image can be a tightly controlled environment managed by the enterprise IT department.

Agility and scalability

It’s quick and easy to deploy new VMs or serve new applications whenever necessary, and it is just as easy to delete them when they’re no longer needed.

Better end-user experiences

When you implement desktop virtualization, your end users will enjoy a feature-rich experience without sacrificing functionality they’ve come to rely on, like printing or access to USB ports.
