What is Desktop Virtualization?

Also called virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), desktop virtualization is a computing model that combines the flexibility of a robust desktop experience with the ability to centrally manage virtual client machines. In essence, it’s a marriage between the convenience of a user-focused environment and the control of a thin-client model. This offers network administrators greater options in managing, deploying, and securing applications and data network-wide while allowing end users a familiar computing experience and convenience with remote access capabilities.

What Benefits Does Desktop Virtualization Have?

  • Set up new desktops in minutes instead of hours
  • Repair or swap hardware and/or client PCs with no data loss or need for data migration
  • Extend the usable life of desktop PCs as client machines
  • Provide end-users with superior real-time access from any remote location
  • Reduce IT costs due to more efficient application deployment and fewer end-user tech support calls
