Future of VDI Technology
Currently, less than 10% of the 1.5 billion enterprise workspaces are Virtualized Desktops. Historically VDI didn’t deliver on its promises – it overpromised and under delivered. It was too complex and expensive both CAPEX and OPEX. The user and admin experience just wasn’t good enough. The days of VDI 1.0 are now over.
Key technology advances are having an enormous impact on desktop virtualization – such as Workspace as a Service, Flash, Software Defined Storage (SDS), Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) appliances, Graphical Processor Units (GPU) and Software as a Service. Additional developments are particularly interesting and promise high value that include Automation & Orchestration and along with Remote Display protocols. The legacy, traditional storage vendors such as Dell, EMC, NetApp and HP are the status quo in the storage industry and are now the dinosaurs of the legacy VDI days. Welcome to a new era of Desktop Virtualization! Let’s make the virtual workspace better, cheaper and faster than VDI 1.0 and even better than the physical PC.
The major characteristic of the Modern Workspace is diversity. It includes diversity of applications and delivery platforms, diversity in device form factors (including wearables), diversity of Operating Systems, diversity of management solutions and finally, diversity in ownership of the device with its associated applications and data.
