VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) has been around for a number of years in a market that is becoming increasingly crowded. Although many organizations may have historically perceived that this technology has limited applicability, over time, VDI has proven to be successful—providing positive outcomes for IT and employees, addressing security vulnerabilities, and delivering favorable economics back to the business.

For organizations looking for ways to improve employee productivity while simultaneously reducing costs, it’s essential to put aside outdated notions about desktop virtualization linked to VDI delivery models. The technology has advanced and, as a result, IT is able to address a full spectrum of use cases. The perceived association of complex infrastructure has radically changed as systems now have smaller footprints, are software driven, and are economically viable. Flash storage architectures and hyperconverged infrastructure are compelling examples that have not only made VDI perform better, but also execute on a simplified platform that is easy to manage. As design approaches, features, and optimization methodologies improve, the overall implementation costs of desktop virtualization solutions shrink, while target use cases continue to grow.
