It seems like nearly all IT Managers have either considered implementing VDI or have deployed the technology at some point during their career. We all know the advantages of VDI: ease of management, increased worker uptime, power savings, greater security and versatility, among others. When considering VDI, IT Managers are deterred by the headache of dealing with multiple vendors for their new solution.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI) have become a trending topic throughout the IT industry, but, as with all revolutionary technologies, it has raised many questions regarding its best practices for implementation. While the concept of virtualized desktops seems straight forward, VDI carries a multitude of implementation strategies – not to mention the numerous vendors in VDI, each with their own claims and advantages.
VDI is a hot buzz word around many IT departments today. Seemingly every IT admin has thought about how much simpler their desktop environment would be if they had virtual desktops. It does sound nice at first glance.
More and more companies are adopting Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI) for their IT environments to simplify management and efficiently allocate resources. However, VDI is still a relatively new technology with many components, which can make it difficult to know what factors to consider when evaluating solutions.
Something we can always count on is that technology is continuously evolving. The evolution of technology has a constant impact on how an enterprise models its infrastructure. Today, IT administrators are facing a number of challenges with the ever-changing work environment. The days of an administrator having control over valuable company data, and even devices that connect to the company network, seem to be a fading memory.
VDI has been a hot topic in the IT industry for a long time. The nature of the technology industry is to condense as much computing power and software into the smallest space possible, and once there, try to maximize the resources available. We take for granted some of the newer technologies that we use every day, but the journey to get there shows how far we have come.
First things first… If you’re not familiar with the acronym “VDI” then you’re missing out! VDI stands for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. It is the process of hosting a desktop operating system within a virtual machine (VM) that is running on a centralized server. VDI saves you time, power, and money.
