HP's Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) with VMware ViewTM 4 is designed to reduce the cost and risk of a traditional distributed desktop PC environment by hosting applications and desktop operating systems on servers and storage in the data center. It delivers a familiar and reliable user experience similar to that of a traditional desktop. Since the resources are centralized, as users move between work locations (home to office, central office to branch) they access the same familiar desktop environment, complete with their applications and data. IT staff can now remotely support, troubleshoot, and manage hardware, operating systems, applications, and services for a broad number of users without needing to visit an end user's desk ("IT floor walks").
