Major developments are underway within the workplace ecosystem as remote working and hybrid cloud ecosystems increasingly become mainstream. With the disbursement of personnel and environments, it has become more challenging to satisfy the infrastructure and management requirements necessary for a company to succeed. As a result of these issues, IT professionals seek solutions designed to streamline the administration of these systems at a reasonable cost. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) offers such a solution.
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) refers to the development and maintenance of desktop components and programs that enable users to work and utilize applications and resources from remote locations and the office environment. VDI virtual desktop implementations can be facilitated by virtualizing computing systems — also called virtual machines (VMs) — allowing businesses to run various software applications and operating systems simultaneously in a data center.
An operating system from a provider such as Microsoft enables VDI virtual desktops, which run within virtual machines on a host server. This virtualization effectively allows the deployment of information, resources, applications, and desktop interfaces through the internet without requiring an in-house data center.
VDI virtual desktop allows personnel to access their work from a remote location just as they would in-office. Moreover, team members can use whichever device is more comfortable for them, such as a PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) has many benefits (among them):
