Why VDI Workloads Will Drive Public Cloud Consumption

What is Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)?

95% of enterprise desktops are Windows-based. Most business users use a Windows desktop to access their applications and data. For an increasing number of use cases – security, mobility, and agility – these Windows desktops are being virtualized and run centrally. End users access them using any device they choose – thin clients, Macs, iPads, and smartphones. Industry analysts forecast that in many industries up to 25% of the desktops in the organization will be virtualized. That is 150 million desktops, but to date only about 35 million desktops have been virtualized, leaving a huge opportunity for public cloud providers to go after the VDI workload, drive cloud consumption and make it easier than ever for customers to benefit from virtualized desktops and apps.

With the public cloud competition heating up, cloud providers should understand the strategic importance of VDI workloads for their success. There are three primary reasons why VDI workloads are so important for public cloud providers:

  • VDI is currently the #1 workload for the datacenter
  • VDI workloads are the perfect beachhead strategy
  • Win the desktop, win the cloud!
