Ten years ago the IT world was a much different place. Most people were still using dial-up internet. Cell phones were too big to fit in your pocket. And the very first on-prem VDI solution was being launched.

Just like a lot of the other IT technology back in the early 2000’s, the first generation VDI solutions (VDI 1.0) from the big guys was clunky, difficult to manage, slow, and incredibly expensive.
