Whatever shape it takes, whatever technology solutions win out, however IT manages to deploy it, desktops will become far more highly virtualized over the next several years. The shift to a more cloud-like computing environment is real, the growth of IT-based-services is real, the path to a new paradigm is real and being blazed.
According to Gartner, 80 percent of businesses will support a workforce using tablets within the next year and by 2014, 90 percent of organizations will enable corporate applications on personal devices. The rapid mobilization of today’s workforce explodes the traditional concept of a single corporate PC where the PC actually resides on a desktop.
How can we provide 24/7 access to technology resources for all staff and students regardless of the device that they are using?
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is the practice of hosting a desktop operating system within a virtual machine (VM) running on a centralized server. VDI is a variation on the client/server computing model, sometimes referred to as server-based computing.
