What is Virtual Desktop Infrastructure?

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) allows IT administrators to host and administer end-user desktops in a virtual machine running on a server in a data center.

People also ask:

1. What are the benefits of VDI?

The benefits of VDI include:

  • Streamlined deployment, management, and maintenance of employee laptops, desktops, tablets, and other devices
  • Improved flexibility of endpoint maintenance
  • Remote-friendly—virtual desktops can be deployed securely and remotely to personal devices. IT admins maintain full control of the deployed environment over files, downloads, virus updates, etc.

2. What are the common challenges of VDI deployment?

Slow or erratic virtual desktops can bring productivity to a halt and result in higher administration costs. Storage performance is often the number one problem—as well as the most expensive component—for VDI.

All-flash storage in combination with efficient data reduction dramatically improves VDI success while keeping costs in check.

3. What is a virtual server?

A virtual server is a server that shares hardware and software resources with other operating systems (OS) in contrast to dedicated physical servers.
