Desktop Virtualization VDI — The Red Hot Discussion
I’ve never seen anything like this in the industry. VMware is going from strength to strength in a way that’s hard for many of us to fully comprehend.
Just when you thought the server-oriented ESX party was raging, over the last 6-12 months the VDI discussion has become extremely interesting, especially to larger organizations who are seeing the potential to save money, deliver better user experiences, improve security and so on.
As a result, a number of vendors are being drawn into extremely interesting conversations around VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure), including EMC.
I thought I’d offer up a few thoughts on this, based on what I’m hearing from people.
