VDI or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure is a quite popular term today. It is needless to mention that VDI is a system that launches an OS in a virtual infrastructure. Plus, the entire system runs on a centralized server. In short, VDI is a high-end server based computing system that simplifies work. To be precise, it is the list of benefits of VDI that is making people interested towards it.â€¢ As soon as an organization installs VDI device, a template gets created. It features a virtual workstation that integrates an operating systems, applications and security codes. This virtual workstation can be established anytime and anywhere a user wants. Eventually, it saves time as there is no need of setting the OS and installing software every time before starting working. â€¢ Most users feel that it is difficult to keep track on software updates. While some have auto-update options, others need manual management. But with VDI, the patch management gets executed right on time, irrespective of whether the software needs manual management or functions automatically.â€¢ It is necessary to update the security system of every computer as frequently as possible. This protects the sensitive data from getting exposed to newly emerging cyber threats. But attending every standalone PC is time consuming too. With VDI, a user can update the security system of the entire virtual workstation at a go!In spite of these advantages of VDI, there is still a dearth of users. The reasons behind this unpleasant scenario are many:â€¢ Cost is the major factor that makes people stay away from VDI services. Big players charge exorbitantly on management software. Even, separate fees are imposed for providing smooth performance in remote desktop display protocol.October 27, 2013 at 10:32 am #34265
Microsoft Virtualization Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), powered by Windows Server 2012, empowers you to deploy remote desktop services architectures that provide employees the flexibility to work anywhere, while allowing them to seamlessly access their corporate windows desktop or application environment running in the datacenter from a range of devices. The features and unified management infrastructure for centralized desktops in Windows Server 2012, combined with application and user state virtualization technologies with System Center increases flexibility of access for remote desktops and applications, delivering personalized, consistent, and secure experiences for users, while also improving compliance through centralized control and access to confidential data. VDI facilitates optimal use of hardware by enabling access to multiple Windows environments (Devâ€”Test, Businessâ€”Personal) from the same client device. They also enable organizations to pursue â€œBring Your Own Device Programsâ€ for employees, where they use their personally owned hardware for both personal and work. This helps IT to keep the corporate environment secure even when it is accessed from unmanaged devices. Windows Thin PC is another technology that leverages VDI technology by enabling customers to repurpose existing PCs as thin clients by providing a smaller footprint, locked down version of Windows 7.See more here
