What is VDI?

VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) is poised to drastically change the way companies run their desktops. In VDI, application workload is moved from a desktop at the user’s workspace to a virtual desktop running on a central server. An endpoint is then used to remotely connect to this virtual desktop via a connection protocol such as RDP or ICA. Endpoints can be a fat client, a traditional desktop computer with a full version of Windows, or a thin client (a small piece of equipment running an embedded version of Windows, Linux, or a proprietary OS). Unlike a Terminal Server or Citrix Server environment, VDI provides a full desktop experience to users, as opposed to just individual applications.

VDI environments have multiple advantages including increased security, reduced maintenance costs, and high scalability. However, before diving into a complete VDI makeover there are several things you need to think about.

Why VDI?

With today’s concerns about data security, management simplification, and cost reduction, implementing a virtual desktop solution is very appealing. The use of thin clients as endpoints can greatly increase system security because all application processing and data caching happens on the virtual desktop, leaving no risk of compromising sensitive data if an endpoint is stolen. The reduced hardware requirements of a thin client allow the devices to consume very little power and keep the cost of the devices low. Instead of needing to refresh all physical user desktops to increase performance, administrators can continue to use the same thin clients and only upgrade the server hardware that is hosting the virtual desktops.

The maintenance and expansion of a VDI environment is much simpler in comparison to a physical desktop environment. Corrupt virtual desktops can easily be destroyed and recreated by copying another working virtual desktop. In environments with multiple servers hosting virtual desktops, users can connect to any working server and not be affected by a down server. Expanding the capacity of a VDI environment
