VDI Predictions for 2015
Consolidate, save, and work from anywhere. The past five years have seen a number of industries and sectors adopt Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). Adopting VDI is a great way to allow your organization’s IT department to simplify the desktop management process; the software creates the desktop images, allowing you to consolidate management to a single location, cutting time and costs. VDI also gives your users far more options for accessing their work. They can securely access business applications from their personal electronic device (a laptop, smartphone, tablet, or PC) to complete tasks from remote locations. This can be especially beneficial when looking to acquire talent that needs to work remotely. There are some high costs to consider, fixed and variable. It is true that many businesses go through growing pains when transitioning to VDI. Initially, it requires some complex infrastructure to get fully set-up. Normally a business will need the following:
- SAN storage
- High performance networking equipment
- Profile management solutions
- Application delivery solutions
- Virtualization management solutions
- And most importantly, an IT team to work together and run the process.
