Desktop virtualization has seen growing interest. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) vendors promise long term savings in terms of reduced management costs. When investigating a VDI solution, enterprises should consider:
- VDI does not have to be a one-flavor-for-all solution.
- Improvements to VDI over the last 12-18 months have increased competition between vendors, and improved cost-savings for enterprises.
- VMware dominates server virtualization but desktop virtualization is still an open playing field.
As VDI has matured, it has become viable for use by a wider set of users; IT departments are examining the costs and benefits it can provide.
